Three reasons insurance is important

Despite the high cost of buying insurance for a Subaru Tribeca in Madison, paying for insurance is required for several reasons.

  • The majority of states have minimum liability requirements which means state laws require a specific level of liability in order to license the vehicle. 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 bought your vehicle with a loan, most lenders will stipulate that you have insurance to guarantee payment of the loan. If the policy lapses, the bank will be required to insure your Subaru at an extremely high rate and require you to reimburse them much more than you were paying before.
  • Insurance safeguards not only your car but also your financial assets. It will also pay for medical bills for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. As part of your policy, liability insurance also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if you cause an accident and are sued. If your Subaru gets damaged, collision and comprehensive coverages will pay to have it repaired.

The benefits of having insurance definitely exceed the price paid, particularly for liability claims. According to a 2015 survey, the average American driver is overpaying over $869 every year so it's recommended you shop around every year to make sure the price is not too high.

Prices based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Wisconsin minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, safe-driver, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and claim-free. Price estimates do not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can impact coverage rates greatly.

We can estimate from the data above that using a $250 deductible will cost you about $11 more each month or $132 a year averaged for all Tribeca models than buying the higher $500 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $250 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you normally go more than 23 months between claim filings, you would save money if you choose a higher deductible. Here's a better example of how you can do this calculation yourself.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $75
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $64
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $11
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $11
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 23 months

One thing to be aware of is that higher deductibles results in a higher out-of-pocket expense when you have a physical damage claim. You must have some extra savings in order to pay the higher deductible.

Full coverage or liability only

The chart below illustrates the difference between Subaru Tribeca insurance costs with and without full coverage. The rates are based on no accidents, no driving violations, $500 deductibles, single marital status, and no discounts are applied.

When to stop paying for full coverage

There is no exact rule to delete full coverage, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance 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 pretend your Subaru Tribeca settlement value is $9,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would get paid by your company is $8,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If you are paying more than $800 a year to have full coverage, then it could be time to drop full coverage.

There are some conditions where only buying liability is not a good idea. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you are required to maintain full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not eliminate full coverage.

Do you qualify for discounts?

Insurance can be pricey, but you may be missing some discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied at quote time, but less common discounts must be requested specifically before being credited.Insurance discounts

  • Defensive Driving Course - Passing a safe driver course could cut 5% off your bill and easily pay for the cost of the class.
  • Accident Forgiveness - This isn't a discount exactly, but a few companies such as Allstate, Progressive, and GEICO allow you one accident without raising rates if you have no claims before the accident.
  • Save with More Vehicles Insured - Buying a policy with multiple cars or trucks with the same insurance company can get a discount on all vehicles.
  • Discount for Passive Restraints - Cars that have air bags or automatic seat belts may earn rate discounts of 20% or more.
  • Include Life Insurance and Save - Select companies reward you with a small discount if you purchase life insurance.

It's important to note that some credits don't apply to the overall cost of the policy. Some only reduce individual premiums such as liability, collision or medical payments. Despite the appearance that you can get free auto insurance, it doesn't quite work that way. But any discount should help reduce the premium cost.
