Gidday HC

IIRC, the excess is about $500 each on ours. Premiums are around the $800-850 for the SG and SH respectively.

The suburb where we live has an extra excess!! First time I have ever heard of a suburb driving a car ... We have lived in this area for the last 35+ years, and even though we have moved house, we still drive to the same places. Bloody thieving mongrels! Not as bad as yours though, considering the agreed value is 3-4 times as much on ours!!

We are insured for nominated drivers, and no one under 25 y.o. can drive the cars except for car parking and emergent situations.

Also if you own a late model Subaru with the Eyesight Driver Assist Technology, make dead certain that your windscreen is covered by the policy.

I have read of a Forester owner in Melbourne (from memory) who had to have his windscreen replaced due to a crack by a stone, he had a battle on his hands as the Insurer wanted it replaced by O'Briens, he told them it had to be OEM and be re-calibrated for the Eyesight Driver Assist Technology, outcome was that he was correct, it ended up costing his Insurer around $1700.00 for the windscreen.

Eyesight Driver Assist Windscreen Replacement - Owners story, be sure to read his first and second posts in the Thread.

Be careful out there on the street.

A good point, Peter.

As the computer software cliche says, "newer is not always better".
