    I live in the city and have a year-old Audi A4. My car insurance is $2200 a year, which I don’t think is that bad. I was paying $1800 in Royal Oak two years ago. While factors like your age and where you live cannot be changed, having a clean driving record and excellent credit are things that will help keep your premium lower in Detroit. Good luck and remember to shop around – some of the quotes I got initially for the city of Detroit were between $3500 and $5000 per year, and were based on the same factors as my current $2200 policy was.
