Drivers just need to take a couple of minutes to get quotes from different insurance companies. It is quite easy and can be accomplished by visiting this page.

Auto insurance rates paid to insure a 2004 can vary widely based upon several criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • The performance level of your 2004
  • Any accidents you may have
  • Home/auto policy bundles save money
  • How you use your vehicle
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • Claims drive up premiums
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you own your home

A final factor which can affect is the model year. A newer vehicle have a higher actual cash value in comparison to later models so repair costs are higher which can inflate annual premiums. Conversely, newer vehicles may have a trim level with safety features such as all-wheel drive, a rollover prevention system, and adaptive headlights which can provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability coverages - Liability insurance can cover damage that occurs to a person or their property that is your fault. Liability coverage pays for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. Liability insurance is relatively cheap so consider buying higher limits if possible.

Collision - This covers damage to your from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverages - This will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by your comprehensive insurance. The maximum payout you'll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

UM/UIM Coverage - Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Since a lot of 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 should not be overlooked.

Coverage for medical payments - Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses (i.e. nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work). The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
