Buying the best cheap coverage for a Ford Fusion is fairly simple, but it hinges on a lot of rating factors such as driver age, if you have a tendency to file claims, and your policy deductibles. Wisconsin drivers pay around $766 each year for Fusion insurance, but that price is an estimate calculated using a 40-year-old married female driver with full physical damage coverage and $250 deductibles.
Odds are that you may not be 40 years old (or even female), possibly single instead of married, and maybe you want higher deductibles. Different coverage needs are the reason why the best method for finding affordable rates for your Ford is to compare rates from as many companies as possible.

Full coverage versus liability only rates
Lowering the price of auto insurance is important to most drivers, and an easy way to lower the cost of insurance for a Ford Fusion is to only buy liability coverage. The information below visualizes the comparison of car insurance costs when comparing full coverage to liability only. The price estimates are based on no claims or violations, $250 deductibles, single marital status, and no additional discounts are factored in.
As an average, physical damage coverage on your policy costs an additional $1,694 per year over liability only. Many people question when is the right time to remove full coverage. There is no set guideline of when to stop paying for full coverage, but there is a guideline you can use. If the annual cost of having full coverage is about 10% or more of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s assume your vehicle’s book value is $5,500 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company will settle for is $4,500 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying in excess of $450 a year for comprehensive and collision coverage, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some situations where removing full coverage is not a good plan. If you haven’t satisfied your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage in order to prevent the bank from purchasing higher-priced coverage. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should maintain full coverage.
