Searching for lower auto insurance rates for your Nissan 240SX? Feel like you’re a prisoner to overpriced auto insurance? Trust us when we tell you many consumers feel financially strained by their auto insurance policy. Insurance companies such as Geico and Progressive all promote huge savings with fancy advertisements and it is difficult to ignore the propoganda and do the work needed to find the best deal.
Consumers should take time to price shop coverage occasionally because insurance rates are variable and change quite frequently.

Forget all the misinformation about auto insurance because I’m going to let you in on the secrets to the best methods to save money, get proper deductibles and limits, all at the lowest rate.
Car insurance companies don’t always publicize all available discounts very clearly, so here is a list both the well known and the more hidden discounts you could be receiving. If you’re not getting every credit you qualify for, you’re paying more than you need to.
Drivers should understand that most discounts do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as comprehensive or collision. So even though it sounds like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, you won’t be that lucky.

Knowing the specifics of your insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are typical coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Liability car insurance – This will cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people that is your fault. Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability insurance covers claims such as court costs, repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your 240SX from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for things like hitting a parking meter, crashing into a building, backing into a parked car and scraping a guard rail. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like hail damage, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird, damage from flooding and vandalism. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Nissan 240SX.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Medical expense insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for expenses like ambulance fees, surgery and dental work. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
As you restructure your insurance plan, make sure you don’t buy less coverage just to save a little money. In many instances, drivers have reduced comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to find out they didn’t have enough coverage. Your strategy should be to buy the best coverage you can find at an affordable rate.
