View 1990 Dodge Shadow Car Insurance Rates

Searching for cheaper insurance rates for your Dodge Shadow? I doubt anyone likes having to buy insurance, in particular when they are paying too much. Having so many insurance providers from which to choose, it can be diffult for people to pick a lower cost insurance provider.

Don’t overlook these auto insurance discounts

Not too many consumers would say auto insurance is affordable, but there could be available discounts that can drop the cost substantially. A few discounts will automatically apply when you get a quote, but a few need to be requested specifically before you get the savings.

  • ABS Braking Discount – Anti-lock brake equipped vehicles can avoid accidents and earn discounts up to 10%.
  • Buy New and Save – Insuring a vehicle that is new can save you some money compared to insuring an older model.
  • Smart Student Discounts – Performing well in school can be rewarded with saving of up to 25%. Many companies even apply the discount to college students up until you turn 25.
  • Federal Government Employee – Simply working for the federal government can save as much as 8% for Shadow coverage depending on your auto insurance provider.
  • Lower Rates for Military – Having a deployed family member may qualify for rate reductions.
  • Bundle and Save – If you have multiple policies with one insurance company you will save as much as 10 to 15 percent.
  • Clubs and Organizations – Being a member of qualifying clubs or civic groups can get you a small discount when getting a car insurance quote.
  • Homeowners Savings – Simply owning a home can save you money since home ownership is proof of financial responsibility.

It’s important to understand that many deductions do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only reduce individual premiums such as comp or med pay. So even though they make it sound like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, you’re out of luck.

Popular auto insurance companies and a selection of discounts are:

  • Progressive may have discounts that include online signing, multi-vehicle, online quote discount, homeowner, continuous coverage, multi-policy, and good student.
  • GEICO may include discounts for seat belt use, good student, membership and employees, defensive driver, and multi-policy.
  • State Farm has savings for accident-free, multiple autos, passive restraint, safe vehicle, multiple policy, and Drive Safe & Save.
  • Esurance offers discounts for anti-lock brakes, emergency road assistance, anti-theft, multi-car, DriveSense, and good driver.
  • The Hartford has discounts for good student, air bag, anti-theft, defensive driver, vehicle fuel type, and bundle.

The most recommended method to compare rates takes advantage of the fact most larger insurance companies provide online access to provide you with a free rate quote. The one thing you need to do is provide information including if a SR-22 is required, your occupation, if it has an anti-theft system, and the year, make and model of vehicles. The data is then submitted to many different companies and you should receive rate quotes instantly.

When to get professional advice

When choosing the best insurance coverage coverage, there isn’t really a best way to insure your cars. Every insured’s situation is different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine if your insurance needs will benefit from professional help.

  • Does coverage extend to a rental car in a foreign country?
  • What is PIP insurance?
  • Is my vehicle covered by my employer’s policy when using it for work?
  • Can I afford low physical damage deductibles?
  • Will my vehicle be repaired with OEM or aftermarket parts?
  • How high should my uninsured/underinsured coverage be in my state?
  • What is no-fault insurance?
  • When can my company non-renew my policy?
  • Why am I required to get a high-risk car insurance policy?

If you can’t answer these questions, you might consider talking to a licensed insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, complete this form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and may give you better protection.

Specific coverage details

Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are typical coverages available from auto insurance companies.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Dodge Shadow.

Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Usually the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.


Liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property that is your fault. It protects YOU from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show liability limits of 50/100/50 that translate to a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage protects against things like pain and suffering, bail bonds, court costs, medical expenses and attorney fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive coverages

This covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from getting keyed and hail damage. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Collision insurance

This pays for damage to your Shadow resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage pays for claims like sustaining damage from a pot hole, backing into a parked car, colliding with a tree and damaging your car on a curb. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Coverage for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses such as doctor visits, funeral costs, chiropractic care and dental work. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Quote more, save more

We just showed you quite a bit of information on how to save on 1990 Dodge Shadow insurance. The key concept to understand is the more you quote car insurance, the better your comparison will be. Consumers could even find that the best price on auto insurance is with an unexpected company. These companies may often insure only within specific states and give getter rates than the large multi-state companies such as State Farm, GEICO and Nationwide.

While you’re price shopping online, never reduce needed coverages to save money. Too many times, an insured dropped collision coverage only to regret that it was a big mistake. The aim is to find the BEST coverage for the lowest cost but still have enough coverage for asset protection.

More affordable auto insurance is attainable both online as well as from independent agents, and you need to price shop both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some insurance companies do not offer online price quotes and many times these smaller providers provide coverage only through independent agents.

    I live just to the west of Las Vegas, NV and for me Allstate had the lowest quote. Insured with USAA before. Wish I didn’t have to insure at all. It’s too old for full coverage.

    I think I’m paying too much. Proud to be from Burlington, Vermont. I quoted with Amica, Sentry, and USAA for my Dodge and saved just over $90 a year. Good multi-policy discounts. Still almost need a second mortgage.
