What factors impact car insurance premiums?

Insurance rates on a 2006 can be significantly different based upon several criteria. Taken into consideration are:

  • Your driving record
  • Better credit means lower rates
  • Men typically pay more than women
  • The deductible you choose
  • Your vehicle's safety rating
  • No claims lowers premiums
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you rent or own your home

One last important factor that will help determine the rate you pay on your is the year of manufacture. Models that are new have a higher replacement value so repair costs are higher which may end up costing you more. Conversely, more recent vehicles may have options such as traction control, adaptive headlights, and automatic crash notification that may help help offset higher rates.


Liability insurance will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property by causing an accident. Liability coverage protects against things such as emergency aid, pain and suffering, and medical services. Liability insurance is relatively cheap so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Collision protection

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder. Collision coverage for your 2006 can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

This coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value it's not worth carrying full coverage.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This provides protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Medical costs insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses for things like doctor visits, EMT expenses, and X-ray expenses. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. PIP is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible.
