Full coverage or liability only
The information below visualizes the comparison of Saturn VUE premium costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Arizona. The premiums are based on no tickets, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are factored in.
When to buy liability coverage only
There is no clear-cut formula for excluding physical damage insurance, but there is a broad guideline. If the annual cost of coverage is more than around 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s say your Saturn VUE replacement value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, you would only receive $5,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If you are paying more than $500 annually for your policy with full coverage, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some scenarios where only buying liability is not recommended. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to maintain full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not remove full coverage.
Car insurance discounts help lower rates for Saturn VUE insurance in Tucson
Insuring your fleet can be pricey, but you may find discounts that you may not know about. Many discounts should be triggered when you purchase, but a few must be asked about prior to getting the savings.
- Accident-Free Discounts – Insureds who avoid accidents and claims have much lower rates as opposed to bad drivers.
- Student Discounts – Getting good grades can be rewarded with saving of up to 25%. The good student discount can last well after school through age 25.
- Employee of Federal Government – Having worked for a branch of the government could provide a small rate reduction with select insurance companies.
- Discounts for New Vehicles – Buying a new car instead of a used VUE may earn a small discount due to better safety requirements for new vehicles.
- Discount for Passive Restraints – Vehicles equipped with air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems can get savings of 20 to 30 percent.
- Home Ownership Discount – Being a homeowner can get you a discount since home ownership requires personal responsibility.
- Active Military Service – Being on active deployment in the military can result in better rates.
As a sidenote, many deductions do not apply to the whole policy. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. Even though the math looks like all the discounts add up to a free policy, it’s just not the way it works.
The chart below shows the comparison of Saturn VUE car insurance costs with and without discounts being applied to the rates. The premiums are based on a female driver, no violations or accidents, Arizona state minimum liability limits, full coverage, and $250 deductibles.
