Insuring the Audi A3

The compact car by the German manufacturer Audi, the Audi A3, can be a tough nut to crack considering the vast inconsistency in pricing coupled by relatively higher insurance rates. Buying an A3 may be a breeze in some states but buyers in other states could be paying extra to afford the same vehicle.

The median price of a used Audi A3 is as low as $9,995 in Nebraska, though a buyer in new Mexico would have to pay approximately $99,9999 in New Mexico for the same car.

Allstate, ,

$225 for a six month

Auto insurance costs me and my wife about $225 for a six month policy on our 2004 Honda Odyssey. We live in Medford, Oregon and both my driving record and my wife's driving record are immaculate with no accidents or tickets for many years. We are both in our 30s and have children. My wife does most of the driving as she is at home with the children, I ride my bicycle to work so I only do about 20% of the driving. Our auto insurance is with Allstate through local agent David Martin and we've been carrying full coverage through Allstate for about ten years now, we carry full coverage because it doesn't save us enough to drop to liability only so we feel safer. I love my insurance provider, they have helped me through some issues over the years that I never would have expected and have kept me coming back to them despite the possibility of a somewhat lower premium elsewhere. All in all I would rate Allstate as a 5+ on a 5 point scale based on their willingness to provide great service at all times.
