Car insurance rates influenced by these factors

Insurance rates paid to insure a 2006 will vary greatly subject to many criteria. Including but not limited to:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • Your accident history
  • Whether you insure your home with the same company
  • How you use your vehicle
  • Add-on coverages such as rental reimbursement
  • No claims lowers premiums
  • Maintaining coverage lowers rates
  • Home ownership saves money

One last important factor that will help determine the rate you pay on your is the year of manufacture. Newer models have a higher replacement value so the payout to repair will push premiums up. But newer models may have options including tire pressure monitors, a telematics system, autonomous braking, and adaptive headlights so those may lower rates.

Liability coverages

2006 liability coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property by causing an accident. Liability insurance covers claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, and legal defense fees. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so purchase as much as you can afford.

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage pays for damage to your from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to 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 vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive coverages

This pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The maximum 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.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants when the "other guys" do not carry enough liability coverage. Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.

Coverage for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for immediate expenses for things like EMT expenses, pain medications, and nursing services. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay.
