Rates are impacted by these things

Insurance rates on a 2006 can fluctuate considerably and are calculated by many factors. Including but not limited to:

  • High performance increases premiums
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Mature drivers pay less
  • Being married can lower rates
  • Add-on coverages such as rental reimbursement
  • Your profession
  • The amount of protection requested
  • Home ownership saves money

One last important factor that helps determine the rate you pay on your is the year of manufacture. Older models have a lower value so the cost to replace them may end up costing you less. But new models may have options including lane departure warning system, autonomous braking, pedestrian detection, and blind-spot warning system which may provide discounts that lower premiums.

Auto liability

This provides protection from damage or injury you incur to people or other property in an accident. Liability can pay for claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, and legal defense fees. It is cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision protection

Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company. Collision coverage for your 2006 can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive auto coverage

This coverage will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The most your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when the "other guys" either have no liability insurance or not enough. Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for immediate expenses for things like EMT expenses, pain medications, and nursing services. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. PIP coverage is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
