Finding economical coverage for a Honda Civic in Ohio is fairly easy, but it relies on a lot of factors such as your financial responsibility, whether or not you have filed claims in the past, and citations or violations on your driving record. Drivers in Ohio pay around $742 a year for Civic insurance, but that amount is a valuation based on a 30-year-old single male driver with full physical damage coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
There's a high likelihood you may not be 30 years old (or even male), married instead of single, or maybe your Civic is old enough that it doesn't require full coverage. There is no one cookie-cutter policy that works for everyone, so the best method for finding cheap auto insurance rates for your Honda is to compare as many rates as possible.
Your Honda's trim level will most likely have an effect on the coverage cost, so the rate you will pay to insure a Civic DX 4-Dr Sedan trim level will be $234 cheaper than the price to insure the fancier Civic SI 2-Dr Coupe model, as shown by the rates below.
