Have you had enough of trying to scrape together enough money each month for auto insurance? You have the same problem as the majority of other drivers. Many insurance companies compete for your hard-earned dollar, and it can be difficult to compare rates and uncover the absolute lowest rate
Consumers should take time to compare premium rates as often as possible because prices change regularly. Even if you got the best price on NSX coverage six months ago you may be paying too much now. Block out anything you think you know about auto insurance because I’m going to teach you the proper way to find better rates and still maintain coverage.
Auto insurance is not inexpensive, but companies offer discounts that can help lower your rates. Most are applied when you quote, but a few must be asked for before you will receive the discount. If you don’t get every credit you qualify for, you are just wasting money.
Remember that many deductions do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like collision or personal injury protection. Despite the fact that it seems like all the discounts add up to a free policy, that’s just not realistic. Any amount of discount will definitely reduce your policy cost.
Large auto insurance companies and a selection of discounts can be read below.
Before buying, ask each company how many discounts you can get. Some credits may not apply in your area.
When buying the best insurance coverage, there isn’t really a “perfect” insurance plan. Each situation is unique and your policy should reflect that. Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine if your situation would benefit from professional advice.
If you don’t know the answers to these questions, you might consider talking to an agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or click here for a list of insurance companies in your area. It is quick, free and can help protect your family.
Understanding the coverages of your auto insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverages offered by auto insurance companies.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
This protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and damage to your 1993 Acura NSX.
Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Collision coverage pays for damage to your NSX resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a mailbox and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
This coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as fire damage, hitting a bird and vandalism. The maximum payout a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Insurance for medical payments
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses such as rehabilitation expenses, nursing services, hospital visits, chiropractic care and prosthetic devices. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers you and your occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
This protects you from damage that occurs to other’s property or people in an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Occasionally you may see one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage pays for things like attorney fees, pain and suffering, medical expenses and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
You just learned a lot of techniques to compare 1993 Acura NSX insurance car insurance rates online. The key concept to understand is the more rate quotes you have, the higher your chance of finding low cost insurance coverage. Drivers may discover the best price on insurance coverage is with the least-expected company. Regional companies may only write in your state and offer lower premium rates as compared to the big name companies such as Progressive and Geico.
When shopping online for insurance coverage, you should never skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. Too many times, someone sacrificed liability limits or collision coverage only to regret they didn’t purchase enough coverage. Your focus should be to find the BEST coverage at the best price, but don’t skip important coverages to save money.

Cheaper not always better. I live just outside Gulfport, Mississippi. Checked online prices for a 1993 Acura NSX. Ended up at about $90 savings annually. Went with State Farm. They have a lot of discounts available. Still almost need a second mortgage. Only insure liability on my Acura.
Great info, thanks for posting. I’m in the east part of Parkersburg, West Virginia. Not sure of all the companies but I ended up saving about $20 each month. You can get a rate quote online.
Cheaper car insurance is a myth. From a town just southwest of Montgomery, AL. Compared quite a few companies. Saved right around $20 a month. State Farm was the best choice for me. Ask about discounts. I used their online quote form to compare rates. Full coverage costs too much.
I’m in Greensboro, NC and need high risk coverage. Help!
Just a quick comment on my experience. I’m just north of Fort Smith, AR. I compared lots of rates. Saved about $20 a month. 21st Century was the cheapest for me. Was with State Farm. Good multi-policy discounts. I used their website to get prices. Next renewal I’ll just do liability.
Good site, thanks. Proud to be from Atlanta, GA. Can’t remember who all I quoted but I ended up saving about $20 each month. Have an at-fault accident tho. Still almost need a second mortgage. It’s only liability tho.
I got decent rates for a 1993 Acura NSX in Augusta, Georgia. Ended up at right around $70 every six months with Amica. Hardly afford to drive anymore.
I think I’m paying too much. I’m in the north part of Las Vegas, Nevada. Quoted with AIG Insurance, Safeco, and Travelers for my NSX and I’m now saving $12 a month. It was easy to get rates. I don’t put full coverage on it.
I compared a lot of rate quotes for a 1993 Acura NSX in Newark, DE. Ended up at roughly $100 every six months with American Family. Left American Family to switch. Not worth enough to pay for comprehensive and collision.
Great site. Checking in from Knoxville, TN. I got free prices from Auto-Owners, Esurance, and Mercury for my 1993 Acura NSX and saved just over $90 a year. Good multi-policy discounts. Full coverage costs too much.
