What influences car insurance premiums?

Insurance premiums for a 2006 can be significantly different subject to many criteria. Taken into consideration are:

  • More performance equals higher cost
  • How many accidents you have had
  • Whether you insure your home with the same company
  • Use of your vehicle
  • Special coverage such as replacement cost
  • Whether or not you have claims
  • Having current coverage saves
  • Whether you rent or own your home

One important consideration that will help determine your rates is the age of the vehicle. New vehicles have a higher replacement value compared to older models so the payout to repair may end up costing you more. On the flip side, more recent vehicles have more advanced features like autonomous braking, dual-stage airbags, and sideview assist mirrors that may help give discounted rates.

Liability coverage - 2006 liability coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property by causing an accident. Liability coverage protects against things such as emergency aid, pain and suffering, and medical services. This coverage is usually fairly inexpensive so buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision coverages - Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your caused by collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage. 2006 collision insurance is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It's also possible to increase the deductible to get cheaper .

Comprehensive coverage - Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low it's not worth carrying full coverage.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage - This protects you and your vehicle when other motorists are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist 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 expenses like doctor visits, EMT expenses, and X-ray expenses. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
