Insurance premiums for a 2004 can vary widely depending on several factors. Some of these factors include:

  • Higher performance 2004 vehicles cost more
  • Any accidents you may have
  • Whether you insure your home with the same company
  • Use of your vehicle
  • Your age
  • Being married can lower rates
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • Whether or not you have claims
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you own your home

One important consideration that will help determine your rates is the age of the vehicle. A newer vehicle have a higher replacement value compared to older models so the cost to replace them can inflate annual premiums. Conversely, newer models have more advanced features such as dual-stage airbags, a telematics system, and pedestrian detection which can provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability car insurance - This coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property by causing an accident. Liability coverage pays for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. Coverage is generally pretty cheap so buy higher limits if possible.

Collision coverage - Collision coverage pays for damage to your caused by collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in. 2004 collision insurance is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive auto insurance - Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The maximum payout you'll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage - Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. 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 expenses - Med pay and PIP coverage pay for short-term medical expenses like nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
