first thing learned in 2008
something interesting about car insurance, at least in our case. it's actually going to cost more to have the same level of insurance on the '99 4runner than it is to cover an '03 a4 or the '06 4runner. it's about $100 more a year than the a4 & about $70 more a year than the '06 4runner. i would have thought for sure it would have cost way less. maybe after some time we'll drop the comp & collision on the '99 4runner. one thing that the agent from amica said was that newer cars just have more safety features & it usually costs more to get parts for older cars because they aren't as readily available. in the case of the 4runner i don't think the parts example is true because i see a crap load of 4runners with the same body style on the road everyday. oh well, lesson learned. i suppose this is my first learning experience of '08.
