Buying the right Hyundai vehicle insurance in Wisconsin is an important decision

Despite the high cost, insuring your vehicle is required for several reasons.

  • Just about all states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to carry specific minimum amounts of liability insurance if you don't want to risk a ticket. In Wisconsin these limits are 25/50/10 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you have a loan on your Hyundai, more than likely the lender will make it mandatory that you buy insurance to guarantee loan repayment. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the bank will be required to insure your Hyundai at a significantly higher premium and force you to reimburse them much more than you were paying before.
  • Auto insurance preserves your Hyundai and your assets. It will also pay for all forms of medical expenses for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. Liability coverage, the one required by state law, will also pay to defend you if you are sued as the result of your driving. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, your policy will cover the repair costs.

The benefits of carrying enough insurance are definitely more than the cost, especially when you need to use it. According to a 2015 survey, the average American driver is wasting up to $865 each year so it's very important to do a rate comparison once a year at a minimum to save money.

Premium data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Wisconsin minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, claim-free, multi-policy, safe-driver, and homeowner. Information does not factor in vehicle location which can raise or lower price quotes noticeably.

Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $100 deductible will cost you approximately $17 more each month or $204 every year averaged for all Elantra models than choosing the higher $500 deductible. Because you would pay $400 more out-of-pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to have at a minimum 24 months between claims, you would probably save some money by selecting a higher deductible.

How to calculate when to raise deductibles

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $74
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $57
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $17
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $100): $400
Divide difference by monthly savings: $400 / $17
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 24 months

One big caveat is that raising deductibles means you will have to pay more when you do file a claim. You must have enough money stashed away in the event you need to pay the higher deductible in order to repair your vehicle.

The example below shows how choosing a deductible and can influence Hyundai Elantra insurance rates for different insured age categories. The premiums are based on a married male driver, comp and collision included, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Cost comparison with and without full coverage

The example below shows the difference between Hyundai Elantra auto insurance rates with full coverage compared to only the Wisconsin minimum liability coverage. The price estimates are based on no driving violations, no at-fault accidents, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Should you be buying full coverage?

There isn't a written rule for phasing out physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than 10% of the vehicle's replacement cost less your deductible, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

For example, let's say your Hyundai Elantra replacement value is $9,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most you would receive is $8,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are paying over $800 annually for physical damage coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

There are some circumstances where dropping physical damage coverage is not in your best interest. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you have to keep full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not buy liability only.
