You have lots of choices when trying to insure your vehicle. You can buy from an agent or go online to compare rates from insurance carriers. Comparing auto insurance by getting online quotes can be fast and easy and at the same time you can save money.

If you've never shopped for auto insurance online, it's easy to be confused by the hoards of companies offering insurance. Finding a lower price on 2006 insurance can be relatively painless. You just have to take a little time getting comparison quotes provided by online insurance companies. This can be done by comparing rates here.

Which factors influence the rate you pay?

Car insurance premiums on a 2006 will vary greatly depending on several factors. Taken into consideration are:

  • Higher performance 2006 vehicles cost more
  • Your accident history
  • Home and auto can earn discounts
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Special coverage such as replacement cost
  • Your claim history
  • Having current coverage saves
  • Whether you rent or own your home

An additional factor that can impact is the year of the vehicle. Newer models have a higher value than older models so the cost to replace them will push premiums up. On the flip side, new models may have safety features like a telematics system, dual-stage airbags, a rollover prevention system, and a collision avoidance system so those may lower rates.


This coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. Liability insurance covers things such as emergency aid, pain and suffering, and medical services. Coverage is generally pretty cheap so you should buy as much as you can afford.

Collision coverage

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in. Collision coverage for your 2006 can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to get cheaper .

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

This coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This protects you and your vehicle's occupants when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.

Medical costs insurance

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for expenses such as doctor visits, EMT expenses, and X-ray expenses. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay.
