Typically insurance companies base their rates on claims history. Maybe, since
the 4000 is a less expensive car to buy new, more young guys buy them and crash
them. And since the 5ktq cost more to buy new, only staid drivers less likely
to crash them bought them. If an insurance company pays more dollars in claims
for the 4000 than the 5000, the cost of insuring the 4000 will be higher.
