insurance for the 6 & 8 are near identical for me...

I'm a 20 year old male with a clean record. The 6 is only $20 cheaper and a WS6 is only $10 cheaper than the SS.

Just amazing to me. Both of my LT1s were $50 a month and they want $150 a month for a 5th gen V6.

Yup, I went from an inline 5 cylinder Chevy Colorado to my 2012 SS and my insurance went up a whopping $5 per month.

the 5th gens are insanely safe cars. I'm 18 and mine went up $10 a month from my 2012 Jeep Wrangler to my SS

Don't worry. One day you'll be able to. Most of us started there. Keep pushing and you'll be ok.

Insurance went up $8/month for me when I went from a V6 to an SS. Agent said it had nothing to do with the car itself, just that my old car was a $26K car and the new one was a $37K car...and so obviously cost more for them to replace in the event of a loss.

I'm over 40, but my insurance went down $300 a year from a 2010 Avalanche to the 2012 Camaro, why?

because the comp/collision/theft on the Avalanche was covering a $64K vehicle and on the Camaro it is covering a $40K vehicle.

liability didn't change. That is based on driver not vehicle (at least in CA) the big issue is the Comp/collision/theft
