Rates are impacted by...

Auto insurance rates for your 2006 will vary greatly depending on several factors. Including but not limited to:

  • Higher performance 2006 vehicles cost more
  • Your accident history
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Pleasure, commuting or business use can affect rates
  • Add-on coverages such as rental reimbursement
  • Claims drive up premiums
  • Having current coverage saves
  • Home ownership saves money

A final factor that helps determine is the model year. New vehicles cost more in comparison to later models so the cost to replace them will push premiums up. On the flip side, more recent vehicles may have a trim level with safety features like tire pressure monitors, a telematics system, autonomous braking, and adaptive headlights so those may give discounted rates.

Liability coverages

This coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to other's property or people in an accident. Liability insurance covers claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, and legal defense fees. Coverage is generally pretty cheap so consider buying as much as you can afford.

Coverage for collisions

Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. It's also possible to bump up the deductible to get cheaper .

Comprehensive coverages

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by your comprehensive insurance. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle's value is low it's not worth carrying full coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Coverage for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses (i.e. EMT expenses, pain medications, and nursing services). They are utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
