My oldest has always wanted a Yellow "new style" Beetle. Ones in any color are hard to find, unless they have a broken timing belt and are manuals with a turbo.
But a nice metallic red V-6 auto popped up within negotiation range, and my kid (a she) is ready to walk to the next town to see it. Do i want to call my insurance so she is not after my Fox 5.0 or Corvair? Do beginners still have to have 4 doors for a lower risk class, or does a v-6 and auto do that? She’s under 5 foot tall and the Grand Marquis I was going to share is huge and surprisingly fast. My wife really does not know where the nose is, even with the seat raised enough that I get hurt hopping in after her. And it has the heart of a police car.

V6, AT and a female I would think should make the Insurance guy happy. Only way to be sure is ask though.

Updates, 1. buying a VW was a mistake. We need tech help like is available for my 1991 5.0 here, only for more frequent issues.
2. Premium class ratings on most vehicles have switched to focus on their safety features. So calling the agent with the car’s VIN before deciding what to get is the only way to get an idea on premiums.

Pete, either FL rates are a lot different than NE rates, or it’s time for the painful task of shopping with other companies! Ow!

I cannot speak on the kid part but give Kemper insurance a try. They were cheaper than most for myself and a co worker I suggested it to.(he has a 22yo daughter). Not sure exactly what he pays but he was happy about the difference
