For insurance I would just call your insurance company. Insurance companies have so many factors that what one person pays could be very different from your rate. As for price, in my area (southern california) it was easy to get my WRX for a few hundred over invoice but I have heard in other areas the dealers are not dealing as much. Good luck

Get the wagon - most insurance companies count it as a "station wagon" while the sedan is a "sports car"

Default costs of the car

I am a 23 year old male with one no fault accident in 98 on my record, and I am paying around 115/month to insure my silver wrx sedan. Not horrible, though I am not too excited.

Make sure you put that it has side and front airbags (driver and passenger). AWD, ABS - you have to make sure they put this stuff down. I told them that I had side airbags and they recomputed my quote and it went down a bit - you just have to make yourself look as nice and responsible as you can. Remember, we all got wrx's for its safety features.

Yeah.

The only way you are going to get an idea of insurance price is to get on the phone and call quite a few places. My quoted rates ranged from $2500 per year to the $600 per year I am paying with Geico. I am 29 with one "improper passing" ticket.

As far as the price of the car..........I e-mailed every dealer in Atlanta and told them to give me their lowest price. One responded with a flat $400 over invoice on any car on the lot.

Good luck with your search.........now start calling.


BTW, I have the sedan.

Just start calling around. Also, check and see if they have any discounts for getting additional insurance. Yes, this may seem really stupid. But do the math on this. I have Car Insurance and Hospital Income Insurance with State Farm in SC. They give me a $80 discount (every 6 months) on my Car Ins for getting the Hosp Income Ins policy I have, and it only cost me $50 (every 6 months). So, if you do the math that is 2 insurance policies for cheaper than 1 insurance policy. Just ask, it never hurts.

In case you ar enot familiar with Hospital Income Insurance. It pays you money if you are injured in an accident that put you in the hospital. Mine pays $500 a day for 2 weeks and the $250 a day after that.
