Are you looking to buy a new or new-to-you car in the near future? New York State warns car owners that these 29 cars may be difficult to insure. Keeping in mind that there is a car shortage right now, so options are limited, you may want to steer clear of any of the models below. It's already bad enough that you're likely to pay inflated prices due to the shortage, but having trouble getting your car insured just adds insult to injury. Many insurance companies are not willing to insure these particular vehicles according to the New York Department of Financial Services,

The following table lists vehicles which a number of insurers have indicated their unwillingness to insure voluntarily, or their willingness to insure only under certain strict conditions or for certain types of operators. This difficult-to-insure list does not apply to all insurers for every vehicle shown, but generally encompasses data provided by many of the leading writers of private passenger auto insurance in New York State. For each vehicle shown, there are a significant number of insurers that do not wish to write the particular vehicle, due to unfavorable loss experience, high cost or limited availability of replacement parts, or high theft records.

If you are able to get coverage on one of the vehicles below, you may end up paying higher premiums. If you would like to make a complaint with the New York Department of Financial Services, you can file it online here.
