I was reading the insurance cost thread. I thought up a couple of questions, but I didn't want to hijack the thread in another direction, so here are the questions:


1) If you have a 'weekend driver' Vette and you participate in single day drives in your area, how many miles are those normally?

It is so weird to be thinking about insuring the Vette knowing that we're going to be piling the miles on it taking joy rides on the weekend regularly. We put hardly any miles on our daily drivers. I work from home and my husband only has to drive to a train station and commute into the city. The miles on the Vette are going to blow that out of the water. We're going to have to ponder on that a bit to make an educated guess when the insurance company asks.


2) And I like the safety features and the directions from OnStar, so I'm for sure going to activate it on the C7 when we get it. I was curious though about someone mentioning that OnStar doesn't report miles driven per year and something about speed data to some insurance company. Is there a list of which insurance companies they DO report to and which ones they do not and what exactly they report? That's a bit disturbing to have our personal data given out. :p

I've seen snipets of snide comments about OnStar made on various posts, but I didn't 'get it' until I read the insurance thread. Is there a sticky note type thread already written on this that is just the best reference I should read?

Thanks in advance!

14,000 per year as my daily driver. This is based on historical averaging over Corvettes I've owned since 1997.

No idea on OnStar reporting. Perhaps the more relevant question would be how you would explain significant excess mileage if you have to make a claim.

Onstar doesn't report mileage to any insurance company or any other company without your expressed consent

From their terms and conditions:

ONSTAR WILL NOT OTHERWISE DISCLOSE, SELL, OR RENT INFORMATION SPECIFIC TO YOU OR YOUR CAR TO THIRD PARTIES FOR THEIR INDEPENDENT USE WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT.

As for mileage, consider the fact that if you drove 200 miles every weekend of the year that's 10400 miles. Factor in weather and life in general, unless you will spend every leisure moment you have in the car, 6000 miles is probably a good guesstimate.
