View 2003 Suzuki Vitara Insurance Rates

Scraping up a payment for overpriced Suzuki Vitara insurance can bleed your accounts and put a big crunch on your finances.

Insurance companies such as Allstate, Liberty Mutual and State Farm increase brand awareness with ad campaigns and it can be hard to see through the deception and effectively compare rates to find the best deal.

If you currently have a car insurance policy, you stand a good chance to be able to save some money using these methods. Choosing the best insurance company for you is not rocket science. But vehicle owners do need to learn the way insurance companies market insurance on the web.

Discounts can really help to save

Insurance can be pricey, but you might find some hidden discounts that may help make it more affordable. A few discounts will be applied when you purchase, but a few must be specially asked for before being credited.

  • Theft Prevention Discount – Cars that have factory anti-theft systems can help prevent theft and earn discounts up to 10% off your car insurance quote.
  • Mature Driver Discount – Drivers that qualify as senior citizens can possibly qualify for better insurance rates for Vitara coverage.
  • Organization Discounts – Having an affiliation with a qualifying organization is a simple method to lower premiums on insurance.
  • ABS Braking Discount – Cars with ABS braking systems or traction control can reduce accidents and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Discount for New Cars – Buying insurance on a new vehicle can get you a discount since new vehicles have better safety ratings.
  • Life Insurance Discount – Not all insurance companies offer life insurance, but some may give you a lower rate if you buy auto and life insurance together.
  • Lower Rates for Military – Having an actively deployed family member could qualify you for better premium rates.

It’s important to note that some credits don’t apply to the entire cost. Most cut specific coverage prices like comp or med pay. If you do the math and it seems like all those discounts means the company will pay you, you aren’t that lucky.

A list of companies and some of their more popular discounts can be read below.

  • State Farm discounts include Steer Clear safe driver discount, accident-free, driver’s education, good driver, and anti-theft.
  • Farmers Insurance includes discounts for electronic funds transfer, good student, switch companies, distant student, and youthful driver.
  • GEICO may include discounts for military active duty, membership and employees, air bags, driver training, and defensive driver.
  • American Family may have discounts that include good driver, mySafetyValet, TimeAway discount, air bags, good student, and early bird.
  • Nationwide offers discounts including easy pay, defensive driving, accident-free, business or organization, and Farm Bureau membership.
  • Progressive policyholders can earn discounts including online signing, homeowner, multi-vehicle, continuous coverage, and multi-policy.

Will just any policy work for me?

When buying coverage, there really is not a perfect coverage plan. Every insured’s situation is different and your policy should reflect that. For instance, these questions may help highlight if your insurance needs would benefit from professional advice.

  • When should I not file a claim?
  • When can I cancel my policy?
  • Who is covered by my policy?
  • Do I need higher collision deductibles?
  • Why does it cost so much to insure a teen driver?
  • What is the minimum liability in my state?
  • Is my custom paint covered by insurance?
  • Is a blown tire covered by insurance?
  • Am I covered if I crash into my own garage door?
  • What is roadside assistance coverage?

If you’re not sure about those questions but you know they apply to you, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Is there truth in advertising?

State Farm and Allstate regularly use ads on TV and radio. They all seem to make the same claim of big savings just by moving your coverage to them. How is it possible that every company can charge you a lower premium? Just pay attention to how they say it.

Auto insurance companies have specific guidelines for the driver that will add to their bottom line. For instance, a desirable insured might be described as between 30 and 50, owns their home, and drives a car with an anti-theft system. A driver who matches that profile receive the lowest rate quotes and most likely will save some money.

Insureds who cannot meet those standards will have to pay a more expensive rate and this can result in the customer buying from a different company. If you listen closely, the ads state “customers that switch” not “everyone who quotes” save money. That’s the way insurance companies can make those statements.

Different companies use different criteria so you need to get as many free car insurance quotes as possible. It’s just not possible to know which insurance companies will give you the biggest savings.

Insurance coverage specifics

Understanding the coverages of a insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the usual coverages found on the average insurance policy.

Collision – This coverage covers damage to your Vitara caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers claims like rolling your car, crashing into a building, colliding with a tree, crashing into a ditch and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive coverage – This coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things such as theft, damage from getting keyed, hitting a bird and rock chips in glass. The maximum payout a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Auto liability insurance – Liability coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property in an accident. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as funeral expenses, emergency aid and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy higher limits if possible.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Medical payments coverage and PIP – Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for bills such as nursing services, surgery, pain medications, dental work and prosthetic devices. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Knowledge is power

There are still a few companies who do not offer online quoting and most of the time these small, regional companies prefer to sell through independent agents. Budget-conscious 2003 Suzuki Vitara insurance is definitely available on the web in addition to local insurance agencies, so you should be comparing quotes from both in order to have the best chance of saving money.

Consumers could even find that the best price on car insurance is with a smaller regional carrier. These smaller insurers may only write in your state and offer lower rates compared to the large companies like Progressive and GEICO.
