Full coverage rates compared to liability only
Saving money when shopping for insurance is important to most vehicle owners, and one common way to reduce the cost of insurance for a Chevrolet Equinox is to only buy liability coverage. The chart below compares auto insurance rates with and without physical damage coverage. The data assumes no accidents or driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, marital status is single, and no other discounts are factored in.
If all age groups are averaged, physical damage coverage on your policy costs an extra $2,211 per year more than insuring for liability only. Many drivers may wonder when is it a good idea to stop buying full coverage. There is no set guideline of when to drop physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than around 10% of replacement cost minus your deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s pretend your vehicle’s replacement cost is $11,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, you would only receive $10,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are currently paying more than $1,000 annually for comprehensive and collision coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.
There are some cases where only buying liability is not recommended. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to maintain full coverage to satisfy the loan requirements. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not consider dropping full coverage.
