The Dodge Avenger is a sedan car with an illustrious history. The first model was manufactured in 1975 and when it made its debut in North America in 1995, it was two-door coupe. But in 2008, it was introduced as four-door sedan.
In this article, we examine the insurance rates of a used Dodge Avenger, which is now manufactured by the Chrysler Corporation as a four-door sports sedan.
The table below gives us a snapshot of the insurance rates of this Avenger in the different states of the West Coast.
|State||Make||Model||Year Range||Average Yearly Insurance ($)||Median Price ($)||Insurance Percentage (%)|
A look at the table above tells us that there is hardly any difference in the median price of the Dodge Avenger in the three West Coast states. The difference in the insurance average also seems insignificant, since all the numbers are below $2,000. However, if you calculate the cost of owning the Dodge Avenger for a period of 7 years in these three states, it will become evident that Washington is the best state to own this mid-size sedan.
The median price of a used Avenger is $14,000 in Washington. Add the cost of insuring it for 7 years, and you have to pay $22,379. However, the cost of buying and insuring it in Oregon amounts to $24,085 for a 7-year time frame. In California, this amount is a whopping $27,465! This shows that even though the insurance percentage is the same in Oregon and Washington, the difference in the total cost is not insignificant.
