Insurance rates on a 2005 can fluctuate considerably subject to many criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Whether you insure your home with the same company
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • No claims lowers premiums
  • Having current coverage saves
  • Whether you own your home

One last important factor that will help determine the rate you pay on your is the year of manufacture. Models that are new have a higher replacement value so the payout to repair may result in higher rates. On the flip side, more recent vehicles may have options like pedestrian detection, dual-stage airbags, and blind-spot warning system which may help offset higher rates.

Liability coverage

2005 liability coverage will cover damage that occurs to people or other property by causing an accident. Liability can pay for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision insurance

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your resulting from a collision with another car or object. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. Collision coverage for your 2005 can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper .

Comprehensive coverage

This coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The most you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value it's not worth carrying full coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when other motorists are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible.
