Insurance rates on a 2003 can vary widely subject to many criteria. Some of these factors include:

  • Traffic citations increase rates
  • Credit rating
  • Men typically pay more than women
  • Higher deductibles save money
  • Safety rating of your 2003
  • No claims lowers premiums
  • No coverage lapses saves money
  • Whether you own your home

One last important factor that will help determine the rate you pay on your is the year of manufacture. A newer vehicle have a higher replacement value so the payout to repair can inflate annual premiums. Conversely, more recent vehicles may have options such as anti-lock brakes, pedestrian detection, active head restraints, and an advanced theft deterrent system which can provide discounts that lower premiums.

Liability coverage - 2003 liability coverage will cover damage that occurs to people or other property by causing 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 purchase higher limits if possible.

Collision - Collision coverage will pay to fix 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 2003 can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive coverage - This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage. The maximum payout you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it's not worth carrying full coverage.

UM/UIM Coverage - Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Medical payments coverage and PIP - Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like nursing services, prosthetic devices, and dental work. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage.
