Why is getting car insurance for my Mustang so expensive if I'm a clean driver?
"I'm 18 and want to purchase car insurance for a new Mustang I'm financing, but the rates are so high. I haven't been in any accidents and I pay all my bills on time. Why?"

“Your car insurance rates are high right now for several reasons. Younger drivers and sports cars typically have higher rates because statistically these criteria increase your risk of having an accident (even if you are the exception).
Insuring a new car, especially one of a higher value, will increase your rates because it will cost more to fix it in the event of an accident.
For now, you can compare quotes to find the best rate using an app like Jerry. In the future, you can expect your insurance rates to decrease with age, provided you maintain a clean record and other factors don’t change.”

If my boyfriend adds me to his GEICO policy, will it increase or decrease his rates?
"My boyfriend and I both have separate policies and separate cars. Should we combine them? Right now, my boyfriend has the better rate with GEICO, but I am wondering if he adds me to his policy how much his rate will change."

Why would my insurance company cancel my insurance?
"I live with my mom and her boyfriend, who have their own insurance policy. My insurance company informed me they were cancelling my insurance due to my mom's boyfriend's driving record. I have a great driving record and he has his own policy, why is this happening?"
