What influences your insurance rates?

Insurance rates on a 2004 can vary widely subject to many criteria. Taken into consideration are:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • Any accidents you may have
  • Whether you insure your home with the same company
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Special coverage such as replacement cost
  • Your profession
  • The level of coverage
  • 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. Older cars and trucks have a reduced actual cash value so the cost to replace them can decrease annual premiums. Conversely, new models may have options such as forward-collision avoidance, sideview assist mirrors, and all-wheel drive which can give discounted rates.

Liability coverage

2004 liability coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property by causing an accident. Liability coverage pays for things such as emergency aid, pain and suffering, and medical services. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so purchase higher limits if possible.

Collision protection

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. Collision coverage for your 2004 can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It's also possible to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverage

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from 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 maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for expenses for things like doctor visits, EMT expenses, and X-ray expenses. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
