  3. I am grateful for your post. I would really like to write my opinion that the cost of car insurance varies from one scheme to another, mainly because there are so many different issues which contribute to the overall cost. For example, the model and make of the car or truck will have a tremendous bearing on the fee. A reliable older family motor vehicle will have an inexpensive premium over a flashy expensive car.
