    Shop. Allstate keeps going up, but even with the platinum plan, after the rebate it is about $3.600/year. So, I was getting solicitations from AAA, so I called them. $2275 for a year, for same levels coverage, though they don't offer "accident forgiveness".

    but, this is for 4 cars, 4 drivers. 2 full coverage, 2 liability only, and a 21 YO male and 17 YO female.

    You are getting hosed!

    I've compared with quite a few of the big companies and Geico was always the best I could do, but never AAA. Do you have to be a AAA member? I'm not.

    Yes, I think so, but that is fairly cheap. In theory they give better rates for longer term members, but who knows how true that is!

    was up around Princeton tonight, so no shortage of nice iron. Was at a light, and up next to me pulls a nice looking new black Ferrari convertible. Just don't ask me what model. But sounded real sweet pulling away!

    Wasn't sure what it was until I saw the Toyota emblem.
    The rear lights form sort a horizontal shelf.
    Forgot to look at the front.

    Not far from a new-ish Legacy.

    Saw a Dart in a color I will call "General Lee Orange" (ok, it was maybe a shade lighter).

    ...white Chevrolet Caprice police car in Oaks, PA. It's the first time I've seen one in the wild.

    ...silver Dodge Challenger SRT8 and one of those huge gray Nissan vans based on the Titan at Cottman and Oxford Avenue in NE Philly.

    I didn't get the memo about all black new cars this week

    rental Avalon

    New style or old?

    New style, likely a National/Alamo car.
  • tjc78tjc78 JerseyPosts: 5,025
    That didn't take long. I'm surprised. The 05+ style took a few years before appearing in fleets.

    I think nowadays, sales are sales. 10 years ago, a Camry was rare in fleets too - now they are everywhere.

    I didn't see many Avalon rentals til 2011 or so.

    neighbor just got a new truck. Dodge 2500 diesel. 4 door cab. Black with silver accents. Couldn't read the side badges to see what specific trim level but it looked loaded and fancy.

    That is a big piece of iron.

    Replaced an older vintage of the same thing, minus the rear doors.

    Heck, I spotted a new VW Beetle in the Enterprise rental lot at Knorr and Rising Sun in NE Philly this morning.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 32,914
    Yep, those are occasional rentals. I know a friend of mine got one last year. Jettas and Passats are common rentals too, and Tiguan/Touareg are not unknown.

    Today's sightings - Altima non rental, another white Gran Coupe, Fusion.

    Don't see too many but spotted one today. For some reason it looks smaller than the previous generation, at least the size of the rear doors - they look shorter. Maybe it's just the lines.

    Looks decent, and I always liked the looks of the previous generation too, just hated the cheapo Cobalt interior.
