Want cheaper car insurance rates for your Nissan Rogue Select? I can’t think of anyone who likes paying for car insurance, especially knowing they are paying too much.
Since consumers have many insurance companies to choose from, it’s nearly impossible to find the right insurer.
Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, but you may find discounts to reduce the price significantly. Some discounts apply automatically at the time you complete a quote, but some may not be applied and must be requested specifically prior to receiving the credit.
As a disclaimer on discounts, most credits do not apply the the whole policy. Most only apply to individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. Just because it seems like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, companies wouldn’t make money that way. Any amount of discount will reduce your premiums.

Understanding the coverages of auto insurance aids in choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are the normal coverages offered by auto insurance companies.
Collision coverages – Collision coverage pays for damage to your Rogue Select from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers claims such as colliding with another moving vehicle, hitting a mailbox, backing into a parked car, sustaining damage from a pot hole and rolling your car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Frequently the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Auto liability insurance – Liability insurance protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show limits of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 bodily injury coverage, $300,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage protects against things like attorney fees, funeral expenses, bail bonds, pain and suffering and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Insurance for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for immediate expenses for things like nursing services, rehabilitation expenses and hospital visits. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as hail damage, hitting a deer, hitting a bird and rock chips in glass. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
When buying insurance coverage, never reduce coverage to reduce premium. There are many occasions where an accident victim reduced full coverage and found out when filing a claim that the small savings ended up costing them much more. Your focus should be to purchase plenty of coverage at an affordable rate.
