Is a Ford Focus ST considered a sports car by insurance companies?
What is considered a sports car to insurance companies? I just bought a Ford Focus ST because I want a bit of extra power and maneuverability. Will my insurance company increase my rates if they consider a Ford Focus ST a sports car?
Each car insurance company has different determinants for whether or not a vehicle is considered a sports car. But honestly, it doesn’t matter all that much in your scenario.
With 252 horsepower, a Ford Focus ST certainly feels like a sports car when you’re behind the wheel. However, many other factors come into play with regard to your car insurance rates; it’s not all about the car.
Age, location, and driving history all play into the rate you’re charged.

Will it be better to buy collision and liability insurance for a rental car or borrow my parents' car for a road trip?
Is it better to borrow my parents' car rather than purchasing insurance for a rental car? My partner and I are planning a three-month trip around the U.S., and we plan on renting a car because we don’t own one ourselves. I got a good deal for a rental, but the insurance is more than the cost of the car. Alternatively, my parents have offered to let us borrow their car—but it has 150,000 miles on it.

Why do rates change between states?
I'm currently insured with Allstate in Texas. I'm moving to Louisiana at the end of the month. I've noticed that my insurance rates are significantly higher with my new address—I'm still the same person with the same personal background, so this doesn't make sense to me. Why was there a change?
