Insurance premiums for your 2005 can fluctuate considerably subject to many criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Pleasure, commuting or business use can affect rates
  • Mature drivers pay less
  • Having a spouse can save money
  • Extra coverages like towing and rental
  • Whether or not you have claims
  • Maintaining coverage lowers rates
  • Whether you own your home

One important consideration that helps determine your rates is the age of the vehicle. New vehicles cost more compared to older models so the payout to repair may result in higher rates. But new models have more advanced features including active head restraints, an advanced theft deterrent system, and lane departure warning system which may give discounted rates.

Liability auto insurance - 2005 liability coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to other's property or people in an accident. Liability can pay for things like legal defense fees, bail bonds, and repair bills for other people's vehicles. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision coverage - Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It's also possible to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision) - Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The most you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage - Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the "other guys" either have no liability insurance or not enough. Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Medical expense insurance - Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
