Buying car insurance may be the least enjoyable component of automobile ownership. It’s a huge industry ripe with misinformation, high-profit margins and small print.
CarInsurance.com, self-defined as “a one-stop online destination for car insurance information,” does its part to give consumers the basics and the details.
Owned and operated by QuinStreet, Inc., a “pioneer in delivering online marketplace solutions to match searchers with brands in digital media” the website offers a good launching point for those seeking car insurance. It recently published a list of the cheapest and most expensive 2022 vehicles to insure.
The site’s editors looked at the insurance rates for more than 3,000 vehicles to determine how much policyholders pay.
Laura Longero, executive editor for CarInsurance.com, is our guest on this episode of the TheWeekly Driver Podcast.
Co-hosts Bruce Aldrich and James Raia discuss with Longero the top-five most expensive and cheapest 2022 models on the road.
