Where can I find the best car insurance rates for a 22-year-old in Oregon?
I'm thinking of buying a new Toyota Highlander as my first car, but I'm shocked by how much insurance is. I'm 22, I live in Oregon, and I've never had a speeding ticket or accident.

“Oregon is in the middle of the pack as far average car insurance rates go. The problem for you is that you’re under 25. Once you reach 25, your rates can start to drop to more affordable levels.
If you’re financing the Highlander, the reason that you’re probably getting shocked by the price of car insurance is that you need full coverage.
This means that instead of getting liability insurance only, you also have to add collision insurance and comprehensive insurance to your policy. This can raise your rate substantially, along with your age.
To find the best rates, you have to shop around. Get quotes from at least three to five carriers for full coverage and see who offers the best price.
If you want cheap car insurance quotes fast, go to Jerry. A licensed broker that offers end-to-end support, the free Jerry app gathers affordable quotes, helps you switch plans, and even cancels your old policy for you.”

Do I need insurance for a car I don’t plan on driving for a while?
I found a used car that's selling for a great price and I want to buy it, but I don't plan to drive it until I find a full-time job and start commuting. Do I need to buy insurance for this car, even though it'll just be sitting in my driveway for a few months?
