Car Insurance: How much do I need?

How high should my liability coverage limits be?
No one can predict exactly how much you would have to pay if you were to cause an accident. Ask yourself how you would pay for any damages exceeding your coverage limits. The higher your limits are, the more likely your policy will be able to pay all of the damages.

How high or low should my collision and comprehensive deductibles be?
Higher deductibles lower your premium but increase the amount you must pay out of your own pocket if a loss occurs. Ask yourself how much you are willing to pay in order to save on premium.

Should I carry collision and comprehensive coverage?
You may be required to carry collision or comprehensive coverage if your vehicle is leased or financed. As your car's value decreases, you might consider dropping these coverages and pocketing the savings on premiums. Consider, though, if the savings are enough to offset the risk of footing the entire cost of repairing or replacing the vehicle.
