Insurance premiums on a 2005 can fluctuate considerably and are calculated by many factors. Some of these factors include:

  • High performance increases premiums
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • Your job
  • Insurance coverage level
  • Whether you own your home

One important consideration that helps determine your rates is the age of the vehicle. Older models cost less compared to new models so the cost to replace them may end up costing you less. Although newer vehicles have more advanced features included like a backup camera, an advanced theft deterrent system, dual-stage airbags, and pedestrian detection which may lower rates.

Auto liability insurance - This can cover damage that occurs to people or other property in an accident. Liability can pay for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. It is cheap coverage so buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision coverage - Collision insurance covers damage to your resulting from a collision with another car or object. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company. Collision coverage for your 2005 can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible in order to get cheaper .

Comprehensive insurance - This coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The most you'll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage - Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) - Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for short-term medical expenses like nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay.
