We all know that owning a Jeep is way fun, but just purchasing one is not the end of the money you will be spending on it. Unless you are buying it just for groceries you will be spending a lot more, I promise. But three Jeep models made it on the top 10 list of vehicles least expensive to insure.
Did this Jeep make the List?
But first lets look at the things you will be spending the most money on after you by your Jeep, there are basically four things:
For the most part Jeeps do not get the best gas mileage, especially the Jeep Wrangler models. And when you start adding aftermarket accessories to them then they really start to guzzle the fuel. But there are things you can do to help with fuel costs, and that is to keep your engine clean with a fuel additive, dont speed, and keep it properly maintained.
It will cost you to do oil changes, tires, brakes, wiper blades, light bulbs, coolant, washer fluid, and other general vehicle maintenance. These costs can get quite expensive if you use the vehicle a lot. Remember tires on Jeeps are a lot more expensive then on a regular compact car.
This is mainly or the Jeep Wrangler JK crowd. Owning a Jeep Wrangler and putting the top down and just cruising around with the wind in your hair is one of the funnest things you can do. I can tell you as a JK owner you are going to want to add fun things to your Jeep, even if its just floor mats, cup holders, and roll bar handles, it will add up and the money will flow from your pockets like water down a hill. But never fear you will love your Jeep accessorized you wont even mind.
And finally they last part of our expenses of owning a Jeep are the insurance costs. Normally if you by a new car you are going to get full coverage, even if you pay cash for it. Even with good credit and a clean driving record insurance can get expensive. But a recent study shows that these three Jeeps were on the top 10 list of least expensive to insure vehicles. That is a good bonus for Jeep considering a lot of people off-road with the vehicles. But here are the three Jeeps that made the list.

So there you have it a great way to save some money on insurance is to buy a Jeep. If you want to see the actual insurance costs and more about how they determined these costs then head over to the article of least expensive to insure vehicles.
