Ford Insure is now complete crap!

What a joke since they have changed underwriters to SWAN from SGIO.

Over 30 quote on 04 XR6 $1995, 04XR8 ute $2478!

I let them know that those prices were total crap and in no way reflected market rates.

Who is good for XR insurance these days for over 30, 60+NCB, clean driving record?

A mate went through AAMI for his XR8 ute, and that was $1600...

It will depend on your suburb and where the car is kept overnight.

I just did a big ring around and found RACV was good. I would try NRMA, they were excellent but dont do Vic.

Well you are lucky as they increased my premium by $1200.

NRMA or AAMI will be the go I think as I can get insurance for less than $1400. Still an outrageous amount but that's what you get for living in one of the "best" cities in the world (Sydney)

I just changed to Shannons from GIO.
They were $600 a year cheaper than NRMA and GIO.
They also accept car modifications where others shy away.

Re: Ford Insure is now complete crap!

Well, I'm getting ripped! Ford Insure was $2300 last year for the Pursuit in a good suburb over 30 60%NCB clean record. Problem was NRMA was $2600 for some strange reason.

So, judging by the above info I'll be expecting a renewal for over $3 gorillas. No way!

Re: Ford Insure is now complete crap!

My sister was ringing around when she got her BA XR6...and Ford Insure were crap then, can't remember their price but it was significantly more than others. She eventually found HBA (I think...I know it was someone that didn't seem to insure cars...but actually does) and they were around high $700...for 2 people over 25 with rating 1 and no accidents. Others were up into $1200-$1400. One company even said that "No we wont insure the XR6s, they tear up the road". She didn't tell him he was an idiot and that they had the same engine as the XT, I would have.

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.
