    I'm looking for the best insurance and I was surprised at what one company quoted me "$3000" a year, but I guess that's how it is these days on new trucks? I was only paying $1500 for my jetta.

    So could anyone suggest some insurance company's to me and how much do you pay a year for your insurance?

    Call AIS (auto insurance specialist).

    I called them when I got my truck and they quoted me 1000s less per year than any other company.

    I just switched from Allstate to Liberty Mutual. For my 2010 Tacoma and my wife's 2007 Camry, we're paying $1,400 per year. Was paying almost double that with Allstate. Includes full coverage on both vehicles. Also includes a discount for my wife graduating from one of their approved colleges.

    My best friend is an insurance reseller/broker, she represents about 15 companies and just plugs my info in along with the limit coverage and up pops a bunch of quotes.
    That saves me the hassle of contacting a bunch of individual companies myself plus she knows who in the industry will honor claims without a bunch of hassle.

    Just open the phone book and look for an add under auto insurance that is close to you that has a bunch of company logos and give them a visit.

    Insurance premiums vary a ton based upon:

    1. Where you live (city vs. rural; state regulations; state court system)
    2. How old you are
    3. Whether your driving history sucks
    4. Insurance limits and deductibles

    $3k/year would be a good deal for full coverage (500k CSL) for a 21 year old living in Manhattan, NY with a spotty driving record. But, for a 50 year old with no accidents living in Minot, ND and a good driving record, a similar policy might cost $600/year.

    The answer: It depends.

    But lots of people like USAA, Geico, Progressive. Just shop around. A lot.

    USAA for me, been the best company I've dealt with. I'd highly recommend them if you are eligible.
