Premiums are calculated by the following

Car insurance premiums on a 2005 can fluctuate considerably depending on several factors. Including but not limited to:

  • Higher performance 2005 vehicles cost more
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Home/auto policy bundles save money
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Add-on coverages such as rental reimbursement
  • Your occupation
  • The level of coverage
  • Home ownership saves money

An additional factor which can affect is the year of the vehicle. Models that are a few years old have a lower value than newer models so the cost to replace them may result in lower rates. Conversely, newer vehicles may have safety features such as an advanced theft deterrent system, forward-collision avoidance, and a backup camera which may provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability insurance

This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property that is your fault. Liability can pay for claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, and legal defense fees. Coverage is generally pretty cheap so you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision coverage protection

This covers damage to your resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in. Collision coverage for your 2005 can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive protection

This coverage will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage. The most your car insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist 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, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.

Medical expense coverage

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses such as EMT expenses, pain medications, and nursing services. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
