I think the inverse maybe true - as the car ages, the insurance premium should go down as a total cost to the consumer. Collision portion may go down while liability will always go up at rate of inflation (or more). In this case, any significant crash test information that implies potentially higher payout frequency/cost could affects the liability portion of the premium.

Insurance companies tend to write-off older vehicles instead of repairing it. I'm pretty sure they compensate you for write-off is lower than the potential repairs cost if they were to repair it.

Just my $0.02

I keep my cars a long time and my insurance premiums have always gone down. Of course having an accident changes the picture.

The liability goes up because older vehicles tend to cause more at fault accidents, especially in states with no yearly mandatory vehicle inspection. I don't think crash testing even factors into liability insurance.
