When it comes to buying adequate coverage for your vehicles, there is no perfect coverage plan. Every situation is different.

  • Is my 2005 Scion xA covered for smoke damage?
  • What discounts do I qualify for?
  • Is a fancy paint job covered?
  • Can I drive in Mexico and have coverage?
  • Does my policy cover my teen driver if they drive my company car?
  • Why am I be forced to buy a membership to get insurance from some companies?

Auto insurance coverages and their meanings

Understanding the coverages of your auto insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Auto insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Medical expense coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for expenses such as dental work, surgery, rehabilitation expenses and pain medications. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover all vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This coverage gives you protection when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Scion xA.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Usually these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Liability insurance

This protects you from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people that is your fault. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to 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. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability insurance covers claims such as funeral expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, bail bonds and pain and suffering. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision insurance

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage protects against things such as damaging your car on a curb, backing into a parked car, crashing into a ditch, colliding with a tree and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive protection

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for claims like vandalism, hitting a deer, rock chips in glass, damage from a tornado or hurricane and hail damage. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.

    Affordable car insurance is a myth. I’m just south of Warren, MI. I got free rates from Liberty Mutual, Amica, Sentry, and a couple others for my xA and saved about $280 a year. Was with Allstate. I’m a pretty good driver though. God forbid I actually have a claim.
