Premiums are calculated by...

Insurance rates paid to insure a 2006 can be significantly different depending on several factors. Including but not limited to:

  • A clean driving record keeps rates low
  • Better credit means lower rates
  • The size of your community
  • Annual mileage can affect rates
  • Men typically pay more than women
  • Higher deductibles save money
  • Crash test rating for your 2006
  • No claims lowers premiums
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Home ownership saves money

One last important factor which can affect the rate you pay on your is the year of manufacture. A newer vehicle have a higher actual cash value so the cost to replace them may end up costing you more. Conversely, more recent vehicles may have options such as tire pressure monitors, anti-lock brakes, and forward-collision avoidance that may help provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability insurance

This coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to a person or their property that is your fault. Liability coverage protects against claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, and legal defense fees. Coverage is generally pretty cheap so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Coverage for collisions

This will pay to fix damage to your from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive protection

This will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's not worth carrying full coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.

Medical expense coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses for things like EMT expenses, pain medications, and nursing services. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
