Rates are impacted by these factors

Insurance premiums on a 2006 can fluctuate considerably based upon several criteria. Including but not limited to:

  • The performance level of your 2006
  • Accidents raise premiums
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Pleasure use vs. commuting use
  • Add-on coverages such as rental reimbursement
  • Your job
  • Your coverage level
  • Home ownership saves money

One important consideration that helps determine your rates is the age of the vehicle. Older models have a lower value compared to new models so the cost to replace them will push premiums down. On the flip side, newer models have more advanced features like a backup camera, automatic crash notification, pedestrian detection, and blind-spot warning system which may give discounted rates.

Auto liability insurance

Liability insurance protects you from damage or injury you incur to people or other property in an accident. Liability can pay for claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, and legal defense fees. Liability insurance is relatively cheap so buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision insurance

Collision insurance pays for damage to your resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder. Collision coverage for your 2006 can be pricey, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. It's also possible to increase the deductible to get cheaper .

Comprehensive insurance

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The most your car insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle's value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses like EMT expenses, pain medications, and nursing services. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. PIP is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
