What car should I get for cheap insurance?
Should I get an older car or a newer car? Does color matter?
Thank you for your question!
It’s hard to say for sure because getting cheap car insurance doesn’t just depend on which vehicle you get. Your personal profile plays a huge role in determining your premium, including factors like:
- driving record
Broadly speaking, getting an older, cheaper car could result in lower insurance prices because you will not have a lender requiring collision and comprehensive coverage for it. Plus, because it’s less valuable, your insurance company won’t have to pay out as much in the event of a total loss.
The color of your car doesn’t affect your insurance at all. If you are trying to stay clear of tickets, brightly colored cars are more likely to be stopped by the police!

How do you split a car during a divorce in California?
We bought a Honda CR-V during our marriage, but now that we're divorced, I'm assuming only one of us gets the car. We paid for the car with our joint bank account and it no longer has a lien.
