Insurance premiums paid to insure a 2004 can fluctuate considerably depending on several factors. Some of these factors include:

  • Higher performance 2004 vehicles cost more
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Home/auto policy bundles save money
  • How you use your vehicle
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • Whether or not you have claims
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you own your home

One important consideration which can affect your rates is the age of the vehicle. A newer vehicle have a higher actual cash value compared to older models so the cost to replace them may result in higher rates. Conversely, more recent vehicles have more advanced features such as all-wheel drive, a rollover prevention system, and adaptive headlights which may provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability coverages - This coverage will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property that is your fault. Liability can pay for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. Coverage is generally pretty cheap so buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision - This will pay to fix damage to your from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverages - This will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The most you'll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's not worth carrying full coverage.

UM/UIM Coverage - Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.

Coverage for medical payments - Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for short-term medical expenses like nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
