Average car insurance costs in Oregon by credit score

Car insurers use credit history as a prediction of how reliable a client will be. Historical trends suggest drivers with exceptional credit are often more dependable car insurance customers: they are less likely to file claims covered by auto insurance.

In Oregon, a motorist who holds exceptional credit can save $1,483 per year in car insurance premiums, versus a driver with a poor credit score. Read more about how credit history affects car insurance premiums:

Credit Score Average Annual Premium
