Rates are impacted by these things

Insurance premiums on a 2004 can be significantly different and are calculated by many factors. Including but not limited to:

  • High performance increases premiums
  • How many accidents you have had
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Add-on coverages such as rental reimbursement
  • Whether or not you have claims
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Home ownership saves money

One important consideration that helps determine your rates is the age of the vehicle. Models that are new cost more compared to older models so the costs to repair may end up costing you more. Conversely, new models have more advanced features such as forward-collision avoidance, sideview assist mirrors, and all-wheel drive that may help help offset higher rates.

Liability coverage

This provides protection from damage or injury you incur to people or other property in an accident. Liability coverage protects against claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, and legal defense fees. It is cheap coverage so buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision protection

Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company. Collision coverage for your 2004 can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverage

This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for immediate expenses like EMT expenses, pain medications, and nursing services. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible.
