Does anybody think this may have an adverse effect on our insurance rates?
The insurance rates on my neon were high because it was prone to thefts. The car had a shock sensor, alarm, and "chip key", and "the club" (which we all know is, to some degree, worthless)
It was one of the first G2 (2nd gen) models so the insurance company based the insurance on the 1st gen. Neons (which is why DCX may have changed the name in '03 to the SX 2.0). As far as I know, the 2nd gen models have far less theft then the 1st gens
My friend owned a car, older, slow as shit, insurance company told him, "it's unsafe cuz it's sooooo old" (car was 12-15 years old I think), so his insurance was high. He got a new car, still slow, but it was a 2-door coupe. Insurance told him, "it's a car designed around speed, so your insurance is still high". They'll jack you any way they can
