Gratitude lists are in vogue these days. Iâ€™ve kept them for years but I donâ€™t normally publish them. However, today Iâ€™m feeling particularly grateful forâ€¦cheap car insurance!
Not that itâ€™s particularly cheap. Or inexpensive. Itâ€™s just that we made some good moves when it came to getting my teenager insured.Â And might I say, Iâ€™m also grateful I have daughters, and daughters with good grades and good driving records! Letâ€™s hope she takes after me and averages only one ticket every 20 years, and doesnâ€™t start any time soon.
I donâ€™t think she understood until her male friends compared their premiums. She now understands why I wasnâ€™t terribly upset when her car immediately needed a new starter and a new fuel injection pump, plus new tires and some other fixes. In the long run, sheâ€™s got a better deal because of what insurance would otherwise cost. If she were driving my car, which is only two years old, her insurance would be significantly higher.
When I put her on my insurance, the company representative told me I could not have put a teen in a better car, either for safety or for the money. Yes, itâ€™s an old clunker that didnâ€™t cost her very much, but itâ€™s a mini tank, a 1986 Beemer.
