People who are new to shopping for insurance may think shopping for low-cost 2004 insurance is hard. Finding cheaper coverage prices is a fairly straight forward process. All you need to do is take the time to get quotes from different insurance companies. This can be accomplished by visiting this page.

Auto insurance rates on a 2004 can be significantly different based upon several criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • The performance level of your 2004
  • How many accidents you have had
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • Claims drive up premiums
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you own your home

A final factor that helps determine is the model year. A newer vehicle cost more in comparison to later models so repair costs are higher which may end up costing you more. Conversely, more recent vehicles may have a trim level with safety features such as automatic crash notification, blind-spot warning system, and an advanced theft deterrent system that may help provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability coverages

Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to people or other property in an accident. Liability coverage protects against things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. Liability insurance is relatively cheap so consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Collision protection

Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your resulting from a collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder. Collision coverage for your 2004 can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverages

This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by your comprehensive insurance. The highest amount you'll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's not worth carrying full coverage.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Coverage for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for short-term medical expenses (i.e. nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work). The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. PIP is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
