Car insurance premiums on a 2004 can vary widely subject to many criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • Any accidents you may have
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • Your claim history
  • Having current coverage saves
  • Whether you own your home

An additional factor that helps determine is the year of the vehicle. Newer models cost more than older models so the payout to repair can inflate annual premiums. On the flip side, newer vehicles may have safety features like adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning system, and pedestrian detection which can lower rates.

Auto liability insurance

2004 liability coverage can cover damage that occurs to people or other property in an accident. Liability coverage pays for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so you should buy higher limits if possible.

Collision protection

Collision insurance covers damage to your resulting from a collision with another car or object. 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 older vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to get cheaper .

Comprehensive insurance

This coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage. The maximum payout you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses such as nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay.
