What factors impact car insurance premiums?

Insurance premiums paid to insure a 2005 can be significantly different based upon several criteria. Taken into consideration are:

  • The performance level of your 2005
  • How many accidents you have had
  • Home and auto can earn discounts
  • How you use your vehicle
  • Special coverage such as replacement cost
  • Whether or not you have claims
  • Having current coverage saves
  • Whether you rent or own your home

One important consideration that can impact your rates is the age of the vehicle. A newer vehicle have a higher value compared to older models so repair costs are higher which may end up costing you more. On the flip side, newer vehicles have more advanced features like lane departure warning system, anti-lock brakes, and adaptive headlights that may help provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability coverages

Liability insurance can cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property. Liability coverage protects against things such as emergency aid, pain and suffering, and medical services. Liability insurance is relatively cheap so buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision insurance

This coverage covers damage to your from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to get cheaper .

Comprehensive coverages

This will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

This gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.

Coverage for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses like doctor visits, EMT expenses, and X-ray expenses. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
