What influences ?

Insurance rates on a 2003 can fluctuate considerably subject to many criteria. Taken into consideration are:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Whether you insure your home with the same company
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Special coverage such as replacement cost
  • No claims lowers premiums
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you rent or own your home

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 may result in higher rates. Conversely, newer models may have options such as autonomous braking, tire pressure monitors, and dual-stage airbags which may lower rates.

Liability coverage - 2003 liability coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property by causing an accident. Liability can pay for things such as emergency aid, pain and suffering, and medical services. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision coverage - Collision coverage pays for damage to your resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. Collision coverage for your 2003 can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverage - This coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage - This protects you and your vehicle's occupants from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Medical payments coverage and PIP - Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for expenses for things like doctor visits, EMT expenses, and X-ray expenses. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay.
