  1. I am grateful for your post. I want to write my opinion that the price of car insurance will vary from one policy to another, mainly because there are so many different facets which play a role in the overall cost. For example, the model and make of the motor vehicle will have a huge bearing on the purchase price. A reliable outdated family vehicle will have a more affordable premium than the usual flashy expensive car.
