Cheaper 2002 Suzuki XL7 Car Insurance Rates

Did you fall for a flashy sales pitch and buy an underperforming, overpriced insurance policy? You’re in good company because many drivers feel the same as you. You have so many insurers to choose from, and although it’s nice to have multiple companies, it can be more difficult to compare rates and find the lowest cost insurance.

How to find cheap insurance

Most companies make it easy to get price estimates online. Getting prices online is quite easy as you just type in your coverage information into the form. Once entered, the system automatically retrieves your credit score and driving record and returns pricing information. This helps simplify price comparisons, but having to visit different websites and type in the same information can get tiresome after awhile. But it is imperative to get many rate quotes in order to get the lowest price.

A better way to find cheaper rates uses one simple form that gets price quotes from several companies at one time. It saves time, reduces the work, and makes online price comparison much easier to do. After your information is entered, it gets priced and you can choose any one of the pricing results. If one or more price quotes are lower than your current rates, you simply finish the application and purchase the new policy. The whole process takes less than 15 minutes and may result in a nice savings.

In order to find out what other companies charge, simply click here to open in new window and enter your information. If you have your current policy handy, we recommend you duplicate your coverages identical to your current policy. Doing this assures you will get rate comparison quotes based on identical coverages.

Does auto insurance advertising bend the truth?

Consumers can’t escape the ads for auto insurance savings by companies like State Farm and Allstate. They all try to convey promises of big savings if you just switch your auto insurance coverage to their company.

That’s great but how can every company cost less than your current company? Here is how they do it.

Insurance providers have strict underwriting profiles for the type of customer that earns them the highest profit. For instance, a driver they prefer might be over age 30, has a low-risk occupation, and has a high credit rating. A customer who fits those characteristics may get the lowest prices as well as save when they switch companies.

Potential customers who may not quite match the “perfect” profile may be required to pay higher premium rates and this can result in the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ad wording is “people who switch” but not “everyone who gets a quote” save money. That’s why companies can truthfully state the savings. Different companies use different criteria so you should compare as many free car insurance quotes as you can. Because you never know which insurance companies will fit your personal profile best.

Save money with discounts

Car insurance companies don’t always advertise every available discount very well, so we took the time to find both well-publicized as well as some of the hidden credits that you can use to lower your rates.

  • Homeowners Pay Less – Owning your own home or condo can save you money since owning and maintaining a home demonstrates responsibility.
  • Clubs and Organizations – Having an affiliation with a civic or occupational organization is a good way to get lower rates on your policy.
  • Defensive Driving Course – Taking part in a driver safety class could earn you a small percentage discount and make you a better driver.
  • Drive Less and Save – Maintaining low annual mileage can earn discounted rates on garaged vehicles.
  • Multi-line Discount – Not all insurance carriers offer life insurance, but some may give you lower premium rates if you buy a life policy as well.
  • No Charge for an Accident – This isn’t a discount exactly, but some companies like GEICO, Progressive, and Allstate will turn a blind eye to one accident without the usual rate increase as long as you don’t have any claims prior to being involved in the accident.
  • Auto/Home Discount – If you combine your auto and home policies and insure them with the same company you will save over 10 percent off each policy depending on the company.
  • 55 and Retired – Mature drivers are able to get reduced rates on XL7 insurance.
  • Multiple Vehicles – Buying coverage for multiple cars or trucks on one policy qualifies for this discount.

A little note about advertised discounts, some credits don’t apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as liability, collision or medical payments. Even though it may seem like you could get a free insurance coverage policy, it’s just not the way it works. Any amount of discount should help reduce your overall premium however.

Companies who might offer some of the above discounts include:

When getting a coverage quote, ask every insurance company the best way to save money. Discounts might not be offered on policies in your state. To see insurers that offer discounts, click this link.

What is the best auto insurance coverage?

When it comes to buying the best auto insurance coverage, there isn’t really a “best” method to buy coverage. Everyone’s situation is unique so your insurance needs to address that. For instance, these questions may help you determine if your situation might need an agent’s assistance.

  • I have health insurance so do I need medical payments coverage?
  • What can I do if my company won’t pay a claim?
  • What if I total my 2002 Suzuki XL7 and owe more than it’s worth?
  • Do I need motorclub coverage?
  • Do I need more liability coverage?
  • When should I remove comp and collision on my 2002 Suzuki XL7?
  • Do I pay less for low miles?
  • Are split liability limits better than a combined single limit?
  • Why am I required to buy high-risk coverage?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form or go to this page to view a list of companies. It is quick, free and may give you better protection.

Auto insurance coverage basics

Understanding the coverages of your auto insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find typical coverages offered by auto insurance companies.

Liability coverages

Liability coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that means you have a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as funeral expenses, bail bonds and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible.

Medical costs insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses for things like chiropractic care, dental work, X-ray expenses, EMT expenses and pain medications. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Collision protection

This covers damage to your XL7 resulting from a collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as scraping a guard rail, driving through your garage door, backing into a parked car and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as vandalism, damage from a tornado or hurricane and rock chips in glass. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

UM/UIM Coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your 2002 Suzuki XL7.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

More quotes mean more savings

When buying insurance coverage, never reduce needed coverages to save money. Too many times, an accident victim reduced comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to discover later that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. The aim is to find the BEST coverage at the best possible price but still have enough coverage for asset protection.

Affordable 2002 Suzuki XL7 insurance is definitely available on the web as well as from independent agents, and you should compare rates from both to get a complete price analysis. Some companies don’t offer rate quotes online and most of the time these small insurance companies work with independent agents.

    This is too expensive. I’m just north of New Haven, CT. Compared rates from a lot of places. Saved darn near $30 a month. State Farm was the cheapest option for me. Left MetLife to switch. I get multi-vehicle and multi-policy discounts. I just carry liability insurance.

  2. Forest Hamilton

    Quoted with Nationwide for my Suzuki and saved about $70 a year. Insured with USAA before. I have a couple other vehicles on the policy. It never hurts to quote around. When should I drop full coverage?

  3. Yvonne Terrell

    Does Allstate offer multi-policy discounts?

  4. Larae Bailey

    If you’re a decent driver and are close to Fort Wayne, IN, check out State Farm. They seem to be cheaper. I get a discount for insuring multiple vehicles.

    Live in the northern part of Chesapeake, VA. Got car insurance quotes from The General, AAA, Safeco, and a couple others for my XL7 and I think I saved around $30 each month.

    Liked the article. I’m in the suburbs of Frederick, Maryland.
