Every so often, insurance companies have to change the rate of vehicles based on the likelihood of them being involved in an accident and the damage they do to not only themselves and their occupants but to the other vehicle and its occupants. If the likelihood of your vehicles getting into an accident has increased, and the cost of the ensuing repairs has increased, then your premiums go up.
Or, they could just be manipulating you to get you to dump that older car and buy a newer car with more safety features.
Much more likely is that some bean counter decided to charge older cars more in order to bring them more inline with newer car rates.
And if your agent doesn't answer your question, find one that will!
