Auto insurance rates paid to insure a 2006 can fluctuate considerably subject to many criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • How you use your vehicle
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • Claims drive up premiums
  • Maintaining coverage lowers rates
  • Whether you own your home

A final factor that helps determine is the model year. New vehicles cost more in comparison to later models so the payout to repair may result in higher rates. But newer models may have a trim level with safety features including autonomous braking, a telematics system, a collision avoidance system, and a rollover prevention system which may give discounted rates.

Liability coverage

2006 liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to a person or their property in an accident. Liability can pay for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.

Coverage for collisions

Collision insurance pays for damage to your from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. It's also possible to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive coverage

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by your comprehensive insurance. The most you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the "other guys" do not carry enough liability coverage. Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses (i.e. nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work). They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
