People who are new to buying insurance may think finding cheap 2003 insurance is going to be difficult. To find the best car insurance prices, there are several ways to compare rate quotes from different insurance companies. The quickest method to compare is to get quotes online. This can be done by comparing rates here.

Rates are impacted by these things

Insurance rates for a 2003 can fluctuate considerably based upon several criteria. Including but not limited to:

  • The performance level of your 2003
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Use of your vehicle
  • Add-on coverages such as rental reimbursement
  • Your profession
  • The level of coverage
  • Home ownership saves money

One last important factor that helps determine the rate you pay on your is the year of manufacture. Older models have a lower value so repair costs tend to be lower which will push premiums down. Conversely, new models may have options such as dual-stage airbags, a rollover prevention system, and lane departure warning system which may lower rates.

Auto liability insurance

Liability insurance provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. Liability can pay for claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, and legal defense fees. Liability insurance is relatively cheap so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision coverage

Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder. 2003 collision insurance is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive insurance

Comprehensive insurance pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The most your car insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for immediate expenses for things like EMT expenses, pain medications, and nursing services. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. PIP is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay.
