Cost estimates assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Jersey minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, homeowner, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Estimates do not factor in specific garaging location which can decrease or increase premiums noticeably.

Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $250 deductible could cost the average driver approximately $37 more each month or $444 a year averaged for all Jetta models than selecting the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $750 more to file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to average more than 20 months between claim filings, you would probably save some money if you choose the higher deductible. The table below illustrates how you can perform this determination yourself.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $145
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $108
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $37
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $250): $750
Divide difference by monthly savings: $750 / $37
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 20 months

An important sidenote is that a higher deductible results in having to pay to pay more out-of-pocket at claim time. You need to have access to more funds in the event you have to pay more for the deductible.

The diagram below shows how choosing a deductible and can impact Volkswagen Jetta insurance costs for different age groups. The premium estimates are based on a married male driver, full physical damage coverage, and no policy discounts are applied.

Reckless driving habits raise insurance rates

The information below illustrates how speeding tickets and at-fault claims can impact Volkswagen Jetta insurance premiums for different age groups. The data assumes a married male driver, full coverage, $100 deductibles, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Full coverage rates compared to liability-only

The illustration below compares Volkswagen Jetta insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in New Jersey. The rates are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $100 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no other discounts are factored in.

Should you pay for full coverage or liability only?

There is no clear-cut rule of when to stop paying for physical damage insurance, but there is a general convention. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is more than about 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's assume your Volkswagen Jetta settlement value is $5,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most you would receive is $4,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If premium cost is more than $400 a year for comprehensive and collision coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

There are some situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not financially feasible. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to maintain full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not remove full coverage.

Why you need auto insurance

Despite the potentially high cost of Volkswagen Jetta insurance, buying auto insurance may be mandatory for several reasons.

  • Most states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry a specific minimum amount of liability in order to get the vehicle licensed. In New Jersey these limits are 15/30/5 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you have a loan on your Jetta, it's guaranteed your bank will require that you carry insurance to guarantee loan repayment. If you let the policy lapse, the bank may insure your Volkswagen at an extremely high rate and require you to pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
  • Insurance protects both your car and your personal assets. It also can pay for many types of medical costs for you, any passengers, and anyone injured in an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay attorney fees in the event you are sued. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, comprehensive and collision coverage will pay to have it repaired.

The benefits of having auto insurance outweigh the cost, particularly when you have a large claim. Today the average American driver is currently overpaying as much as $810 a year so you should quote your policy with other companies once a year at a minimum to be sure current rates are still competitive.
