Car insurance premiums paid to insure a 2006 will vary greatly subject to many criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • Traffic citations increase rates
  • Your credit history
  • Your gender can raise or lower rates
  • Low deductibles cost more
  • Safety rating of your 2006
  • Your claim history
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you own your home

An additional factor that will help determine is the year of the vehicle. New vehicles have a higher replacement value than older models so the payout to repair will push premiums up. Conversely, newer models may have safety features such as lane departure warning system, autonomous braking, pedestrian detection, and blind-spot warning system so those may give discounted rates.

Auto liability

2006 liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to a person or their property by causing an accident. Liability insurance covers things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so you should buy as much as you can afford.

Collision protection

Collision coverage pays for damage to your from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It's also possible to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive auto coverage

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage. The maximum amount you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses such as nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
