insurance costs?

Do you feel it is rather expensive to insure an escape?
I'm trying to debate on whether to buy out my lease on my F150 or to get a new escape. I checked on insurance rates on the escape and it is only $12 cheaper a year to insure than my F150. When new the F150 was about $10,000 more than the new escape costs. Our explorer is about a $100 a year cheaper than it as well. I assumed it would be closer to the cost of the explorer.
This insurance crap makes no sense to me. :wall:

When I traded my Focus for the Escape my rate went down $2 a month.
The agent explained that the Focus was more likely to be a write-off after a collision and a small SUV is more likely to be repaired.
Really? My move from a Focus (wagon) to Escape increased my insurance $40/month. Interesting that a Civic would have cost me even more than the Escape.

My friend an I were looking at insurance rates online and we discovered just his postal code compared to mine was costing him several hundred more per year.

Edit: P.S. thanks for lending us Kadri for a game :)
