Thanks for all the input.

We took a lot of the advice in my prior thread to good use.

We opted for used, low miles, under warranty. Good safety rating ( 5's and 4's), sedan ( low rollover stats).

He is a very happy camper!

As an insurance agent the only thing that goes through my mind is rate. But it's obviously in your budget so who cares. I'm glad he's happy and that you put safety first.

We have USAA. It is very reasonable. Our insurance went up a mere 150 a month. Not bad at all

Just for the vehicle or for him as a driver and vehicle? $1,800 a year is a lot for many. Our total yearly premium is only $1,200 for 3 cars, two of which are full coverage.

But I'm also in Ohio. We are one of the cheaper states when it comes to insurance. Our agency has beat out USAA in pricing numerous times. But a lot of people carry it because of the prestige and inclusively. They have a great claims department.
