Insurance rates for your 2003 can vary widely subject to many criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • Any accidents you may have
  • Whether you insure your home with the same company
  • Pleasure, commuting or business use can affect rates
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • No claims lowers premiums
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you own your home

One last important factor that will help determine the rate you pay on your is the year of manufacture. A newer vehicle have a higher replacement value so the payout to repair can inflate annual premiums. Conversely, new models may have options such as automatic crash notification, blind-spot warning system, and an advanced theft deterrent system which can provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability coverages

2003 liability coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to other's property or people by causing an accident. Liability coverage pays for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so purchase higher limits if possible.

Collision protection

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverages

Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The maximum payout you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Coverage for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
