Car insurance premiums on a 2004 can fluctuate considerably subject to many criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Home and auto can earn discounts
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • Your occupation
  • Insurance coverage level
  • Whether you own your home

An additional factor that can impact is the year of the vehicle. Used vehicles cost less than newer models so the cost to replace them can decrease annual premiums. Although new models may have safety features included like pedestrian detection, tire pressure monitors, and autonomous braking which may give discounted rates.

Liability insurance

2004 liability coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to people or other property. 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 you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision insurance

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with another car or object. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. Collision coverage for your 2004 can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It's also possible to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper .

Comprehensive protection

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

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Medical expense coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses such as nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
