The real cost of car insurance: A look at the numbers
The real costs of car driving have been rising and the numbers have been getting worse over the past few years.
According to the latest data from car insurance provider Avis Budget, the average cost of a car insurance policy for 2016 was $22,945.
That’s a jump of $2,099 over 2015.
And if you’re going to pay out a lot of money, you might as well have a good car.
So what is the real cost?
While it’s easy to look at these numbers and assume they’re being driven by the car industry, Avis’ data shows that it’s actually much more complicated than that.
In a nutshell, it’s a function of three factors: cost of the insurance policy, cost of repairs, and the cost of maintenance.
Cost of insurance Avis uses an insurance company’s cheapest rate for a policy, which is usually lower than the cost they’re currently paying.
So the company will charge you a lower rate if the cost is less than $10,000 a year.
Avis Budget also uses the most recent cheapest car insurance company, which will be higher if the policy is under $15,000, and lower if it’s under $20,000.
This is where it gets interesting.
If you’re looking at the cheapest car that Avis covers, the cheapest will be the 2016 Nissan LEAF, which was priced at $28,700 for a new policy in 2016.
So when you compare the cheapest rate with the cheapest price for 2016 Nissan, you’ll see that the cost per mile is actually a lot higher.
As a result, if you buy a new 2016 Nissan Leaf, the car will cost you $22.09 more a year, which means you’ll have to pay $9,500 a year in additional insurance to cover the cost.
Even worse, you’re paying out less per mile for your 2016 Nissan than you would for a comparable 2017 Ford Focus or 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA.
When it comes to repairs, Alesb Budget says that the average repair cost per year for a 2016 Nissan will be $3,938.
On the other hand, the cost to replace a vehicle is much higher.
Alesa Budget says a replacement cost for a vehicle in 2016 will be between $4,500 and $6,000 per vehicle.
However, if a car needs to be repaired on a regular basis, the repair cost will actually be much higher, because it will have to be paid for by you.
That means a replacement repair would be $6.25 a month.
But how much will it cost you?
The average cost for car insurance will vary from insurer to insurer, depending on the cost and the severity of the damage.
The cheapest insurer for a car in 2016 is Avis.
It will cost around $10 a mile for a one-year policy for a Nissan LEAV.
In the case of a two-year car insurance, the insurer will charge $14.95 a mile, while the cheapest for two-years insurance is around $17.99.
And the cheapest repair cost is around the $8.25 per mile rate.
Of course, Alex’s figures aren’t for all cars, and for every car you buy, you can expect to pay anywhere between $1,200 and $3 and $4 a mile depending on your policy.
To compare, you could look at how much money you could save by using a hybrid car for example.
An average Hyundai i30 Hybrid will cost $7,600 to $10.00 a mile and would save you about $300 a year if you bought it with a three-year or four-year auto policy.
Avis is not the only company that has this information on their website.
The Insurance Information Institute (III) also has data on average cost and average repair costs.
What is your take on these figures?
Do you think they’re fair or do you think Aless figures are a little misleading?
