This can be accomplished by visiting this page.

Insurance premiums paid to insure a 2003 can be significantly different based upon several criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • Your driving record
  • Better credit means lower rates
  • Men typically pay more than women
  • Higher deductibles save money
  • Safety rating of your 2003
  • Your job
  • The level of coverage
  • Whether you own your home

One important consideration that can impact your rates is the age of the vehicle. Used vehicles cost less compared to new models so the costs to repair will push premiums down. Conversely, more recent vehicles have more advanced features such as an advanced theft deterrent system, adaptive cruise control, active head restraints, and a telematics system that may help provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability insurance - Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property. Liability coverage protects against things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. Liability insurance is relatively cheap so buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision - This coverage will pay to fix damage to your from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive protection - This will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The highest amount you'll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's not worth carrying full coverage.

UM/UIM Coverage - Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Medical expense coverage - Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for short-term medical expenses like 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 only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
