Insurance Costs and Used Minivans

By October 29, 2012

Follow me on:

It's not that surprising that I would be a fan of minivans. After all, I own a 2008 Mazda Mazda5, which is a used minivan.

What surprised me, though, was how much the disparity can be in insuring one minivan over another. I discovered that while writing an article on researching insurance costs before buying a used minivan.

Yes, as I have pointed out many times before (and I won't bore you with links), my job as the guide to used cars is to read reams of material on things you would never consider - just so I can provide you helpful advice on buying and selling used cars.

Want to know the biggest tip I picked up? New minivans (and by extension used minivans) take longer to sell than SUVs. That can save you some money during the negotiation process.

Hope everybody on the East Coast is weathering Hurricane Sandy well!
