hi guys,
my wife and i just bought a 94 passat GLX for her. we love it, but why is the insurance so darned high? when we were shopping for cars, we asked our ins agent to compare the ins costs of other cars like civic, accord, camary, but the vw was consistantly ~$400 higher per year.
now, it is a lot more car for the money - basically a luxury car for under $9k. i mean, it's got leather and all the amenities, so is that why it's so high? or are they expensive to fix or something?
anyone else have high ins with their 'dub? any insights?

Turbo? What turbo?
Yeah, it's because the parts are very expensive. Most dubs have the factory anti-theft system and aren't usually stolen. When VW started putting it in, theft of vw's went down 75%.
