The are a couple different ways to get quotes and find the best price. The best way to find the lowest 2008 Lexus RX 400h rates involves getting comparison quotes online. This is very easy and can be done in a couple of different ways.

Slightly different coverages may result in a large different in cost. Just keep in mind that more quotes gives you a better chance of getting the best price.

Learning about specific coverages of auto insurance can help you determine appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. Auto insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Collision coverages – This covers damage to your RX 400h resulting from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims like backing into a parked car, hitting a mailbox and damaging your car on a curb. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – This coverage provides protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Lexus RX 400h.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Coverage for medical expenses – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for nursing services, funeral costs and dental work. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Liability auto insurance – Liability insurance provides protection from damage that occurs to a person or their property in an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show limits of 50/100/50 which means a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Occasionally you may see a combined single limit or CSL which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability insurance covers things like structural damage, medical expenses and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
Comprehensive auto insurance – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from flooding and damage from getting keyed. The maximum payout a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
