MOST OF 1993 CAR MODELS QUALIFYING FOR LOWER PREMIUMS FROM STATE FARM HAVE DOMESTIC BRAND NAMES

 BLOOMINGTON, Ill., Nov. 18 ~PRNewswire~ -- Most of the 1993 car models that will qualify for lower auto insurance premiums from State Farm Insurance Companies are vehicles with domestic American brand names.
 Under a State Farm rating plan on file with insurance departments in most states, 81 domestic models and 52 models with foreign brand names qualify for lower-than-standard premiums because they have fewer and less-expensive claims for physical damage and theft.
 Under the same rating plan, 72 foreign and 57 domestic models are being charged higher-than-standard premiums because their claim losses are greater than average.
 Models qualifying for the lower rates generally are charged from 10 to 45 percent less than the standard premiums for collision and comprehensive coverages. Owners of models getting higher rates generally pay from 10 to 45 percent above standard.
 State Farm used its actual claim losses for vehicle damage and theft on similar models in previous years to determine which 1993 models would qualify for higher or lower premiums.
 Many older vehicles are also being charged rates below or above standard under the program, which has been in effect since 1981.
 The State Farm model rating program applies to all states except Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Texas, where similar state-mandated programs are in use.
 Below is a list of the 1993 models that qualify, in most states, for lower-than-standard premiums and those that are charged higher-than- standard premiums. Those 1993 models not appearing on either list are being charged standard premiums.
 The following 1993 models will be charged lower than standard collision and comprehensive premiums:
