TWO-THIRDS OF '92 CAR MODELS QUALIFYING FOR LOWER PREMIUMS FROM STATE FARM HAVE DOMESTIC BRAND NAMES

    TWO-THIRDS OF '92 CAR MODELS QUALIFYING FOR LOWER PREMIUMS FROM
               STATE FARM HAVE DOMESTIC BRAND NAMES
    BLOOMINGTON, Ill., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Two-thirds of the 1992 car models qualifying for lower auto insurance premiums from State Farm Mutual are vehicles with domestic American brand names.
    Under a State Farm rating plan on file with insurance departments in most states, 91 domestic models and 46 models with foreign brand names will qualify for lower-than-standard premiums because they have fewer and less-expensive claims for physical damage and theft.
    Under the same rating plan, another 66 foreign and 56 domestic models are receiving 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 1992 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.  Similar programs are in use in those states.
    In the following lists are the 1992 models that qualify, in most states, for lower-than-standard premiums and those that are charged higher-than-standard premiums.  Those 1992 models not appearing on either list are being charged standard premiums.
