You just need to take a few minutes to compare quotes from different insurance companies. This is very easy and can be done by getting a quick quote here.

Insurance premiums for your 2006 can fluctuate considerably based upon several criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • Your driving record
  • Credit rating impacts rates
  • Your gender can raise or lower rates
  • The deductible you choose
  • Safety rating of your 2006
  • Whether or not you have claims
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you own your home

One important consideration that will help determine your rates is the age of the vehicle. Models that are new have a higher replacement value compared to older models so repair costs are higher which may result in higher rates. Conversely, newer models have more advanced features such as forward-collision avoidance, a collision avoidance system, a backup camera, and automatic crash notification which may help offset higher rates.

Liability auto insurance

Liability insurance protects you from damage that occurs to other's property or people by causing an accident. Liability can pay for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. Liability insurance is relatively cheap so buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision insurance

Collision coverage pays for damage to your resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The most you'll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Medical expense insurance

Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for short-term medical expenses like nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible.
