How Much Would It Cost to Insure the Tumbler Batmobile?

How Much Would It Cost to Insure the Tumbler Batmobile?

See All Car Insurance Articles
With The Dark Knight Rises hitting theatres this weekend, we thought it would be fun to calculate how much Batman's modified batmobile known as the "Tumbler Batmobile" would cost to insure. Obviously, money isn't an issue for Bruce Wayne who is worth an estimated $6.5 billion but how much is he paying to insure that batmobile and what kind of coverage does he have? As a rough estimate, the cost of your car insurance is usually 5% to 8% of the cost of your car. Considering the cost of the tumbler batmobile was $250,000 to produce, Bruce Wayne is likely shelling out $20,000 per year on car insurance. In addition, if he has comprehensive and collision coverage, which he should because he's smashing into bad guys all the time, he…

Honda Fit EV Owners Get Free Insurance?

Honda Fit EV Owners Get Free Insurance?

See All Car Insurance Articles
In an effort to get more electric vehicles off the showroom floor, Honda is offering customers free insurance coverage for anyone that buys a brand new Fit EV. The caveat is, Honda will only pay for the collision coverage, you will still need to get liability and comprehensive coverage elsewhere. Regardless, this is still a pretty enticing offer considering the average collision coverage tacks on close to $600 to an annual premium. Honda believes that this move will not only provide an incentive to customers but will also help insurance companies who may not be able to fully assess the risk of the Fit EV as there are not many of them on the roads. Remember insurance companies base their rates on probabilities and it is difficult to get an…

Are Good Drivers Paying Too Much for Car Insurance?

Are Good Drivers Paying Too Much for Car Insurance?

See All Car Insurance Articles
The short answer is yes. But it's actually not as bad as one would think. A study released by the Consumer Federation of America (CFA) found that good drivers, those with no accidents or tickets, were being overcharged by the major insurance companies. The study which looked at two types of drivers from 15 cities living in medium income territories found that over half their quotes were over $1,000 and a third of the quotes were over $1,500. The CFA used the online rating tools found on insurer's websites to compare quotes. CFA, Commissioner J. Robert Hunter, was understandably upset, saying, "Our research suggests that most rates charged moderate-income drivers are neither fair nor affordable." He recommends that insurance companies should standardize their rates. Here's my take. Insurance companies charge…
