You just need to take a few minutes getting comparison quotes online with multiple companies. This can be accomplished by comparing rates here.

Rates are impacted by these factors

Car insurance premiums paid to insure a 1990 can be significantly different subject to many criteria. Including but not limited to:

  • Traffic citations increase rates
  • Better credit means lower rates
  • Your gender can raise or lower rates
  • Deductible amount directly impacts your rate
  • Crash test rating for your 1990
  • Your claim history
  • Having current coverage saves
  • Home ownership saves money

An additional factor that helps determine is the year of the vehicle. Newer models cost more than older models so the payout to repair may end up costing you more. On the flip side, newer models may have safety features like adaptive cruise control, autonomous braking, traction control, and forward-collision avoidance that may help lower rates.

Auto liability

1990 liability coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property in an accident. Liability coverage protects against claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, and legal defense fees. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision insurance

Collision insurance pays for damage to your from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to get cheaper .

Comprehensive auto coverage

This pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for immediate expenses such as EMT expenses, pain medications, and nursing services. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay.
