Criteria which help determine insurance rates

Insurance rates on a 2005 will vary greatly and are calculated by many factors. A few of these criteria are:

  • High performance increases premiums
  • Your accident history
  • Home/auto policy bundles save money
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Optional coverages like vehicle replacement
  • No claims lowers premiums
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Owning a home can lower rates

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 costs to repair will push premiums up. Conversely, newer vehicles may have options such as all-wheel drive, a rollover prevention system, and adaptive headlights so those may provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability coverages - This can cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property that is your fault. Liability insurance covers claims such as funeral expenses, loss of income, and emergency aid. It is cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.

Collision - This covers damage to your resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company. Collision coverage for your 2005 can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverages - This coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The maximum amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

UM/UIM Coverage - This coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.

Coverage for medical payments - Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for bills for things like ambulance fees, surgery, and doctor visits. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
