I have 03 celica, and I have been driving since I was 16 years old, I'm 22 now. I have one ticket on my record last year when I got caught going 95. My State farm insurance here in CALI went up and I was paying $168, now my insurance went up again and I'm paying 220 because of my record. I want to change my insurance company, Any recommendation would be great. Also, anyone know how long does the ticket record last on dmv record? Thanks in advance
DIdja know that the Celica is the third most expensive car under 35K to insure? first is the Ford Stang Convert. Then the S2000. Behind Celica are the Eclipse spyder and Chrysler Sebring convertible. All convertibles. Damn. As for mine...given the accident, I have no idea.

I'm in Jersey and I pay 1610 a year(so 135$/month). This is with Geico. From my experience State Farm sucks. For me they just kept raising my rates even though I was getting older and never had anything on my record. I am only paying 5$/month more with my Celica GTS than I was paying for my 89' Tercel(and that was without collision).
Let's just say I am involved with financials for a major insurance player. The insurance rates are tied to the profitability needs of the company. When the stock market is as fucked up as its been the past couple years, investment income takes a hike. The quickest way to make it up is on the premium side...they know we all hafta drive. Not much different with the big oil companies. When gas hits $5 a gallon, who among us won't figure out a way to come up with the $70 for a fill-up?

Holy crap you seriously get stung for insurance over there!! Celica isn't a high insurance group over here, I was quite surprised when I got a quote for myself (29 yr old, clean license, no claims for 7 years) at 450 which would be about $815 at the moment..
i think mines like 1900$ thats with 2 tickets, but i get mad breaks from being long time insured, multi-car policy, dual airbags,seatbelts,abs brakes, disc brakes and all that other crap,its adds up to like 20 deductions for like a 250$ savings..
