Volkswagen, which means “the peoples car” in German, came about when Frederick Porsche was chosen to provide a design for a car that was cost effective. The result was the Volkswagen. A town was built around the factory to provide enough workers for the new Volkswagen. The car was nicknamed “Beetle” as it looked like a giant beetle or lady bug. Some drivers were tempted to invent a giant fly swatter they could use in case the Volkswagen created traffic problems.
Volkswagen went on to design and build a variety of automobiles such as the Jetta, Golf and the Tiguan SUV. Volkswagen’s are moderately priced vehicles, and that helps to keep the Volkswagen insurance cost at bay. The cost of the Volkswagen and the cost of the insurance make Volkswagen a reasonably priced vehicle that will fit most vehicle budgets.
Volkswagens are another make of vehicle that is not popular with car thieves. The cost of the car and design are part of the reason the vehicles are not attractive to car thieves, along with the individual parts of the car. Car thieves steal cars and strip them of the parts that can be resold at a premium rate. Volkswagen has car parts that are all too common among cars and will not fetch a premium price until the cars are very old and with few on the road.
Safety standards help determine the cost of an insurance plan and the resulting premiums. Volkswagens have received high ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which in turn makes Volkswagen insurance cost effective for the average car owner. Other factors that drive the cost of insurance is age and driving record of the driver.
Volkswagen insurance can be made cheaper by insuring multiple cars on the same policy. Mom or dad may insure a vehicle for their child on the parent’s policy and the policy may be eligible for a multi car discount. There are other ways to make Volkswagen insurance more cost effective by choosing only the necessary options. Over insuring a Volkswagen will not return a bigger payoff if a claim is filed. It will only make the premiums more expensive and will only be a waste of money. Under insuring a Volkswagen could result in serious financial consequences.
When choosing Volkswagen car insurance, compare prices and coverage with several companies. Compare the dollar amount against the level of coverage. A low premium may be attractive, but the coverage may be less what is necessary. Taking out insurance of any kind is a gamble and anyone who wants to save money may takeout less insurance, but could end up on the wrong end of the wrong financial stick if a claim is filed.
