Prices above based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Jersey minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, multi-policy, safe-driver, claim-free, and multi-vehicle. Prices do not factor in vehicle garaging location which can influence coverage prices significantly.

Based on the figures above, using a $100 deductible costs an average of $35 more each month or $420 annually across all Suzuki Kizashi models than quoting the higher $500 deductible. Because you would pay $400 more if you turn in a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to average at least 11 months between claims, you would probably be better off by selecting a higher deductible.

The chart below highlights how deductible choice and can impact Suzuki Kizashi insurance rates for different ages of insureds. The premiums are based on a married male driver, full coverage, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

How much more does full coverage cost in Jersey City?

The chart below visualizes the comparison of Suzuki Kizashi insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in New Jersey. The data is based on a clean driving record, no claims, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

When to stop buying full coverage

There isn't a written rule for excluding full coverage on your policy, but there is a general convention. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than about 10% of replacement cost minus your deductible, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

For example, let's pretend your Suzuki Kizashi book value is $9,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most your company would pay you is $8,000 after paying your deductible. If premiums are more than $800 a year for your policy with full coverage, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

There are some conditions where removing full coverage is not advised. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to carry 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 damaged, you should maintain full coverage.

Auto insurance in New Jersey serves several purposes

Despite the potentially high cost of Suzuki Kizashi insurance, paying for auto insurance is required by state law in New Jersey and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.

  • Almost all states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means state laws require specific minimum amounts of liability insurance coverage if you don't want to risk a ticket. 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 your vehicle has a loan, more than likely the lender will make it mandatory that you have physical damage coverage to ensure they get paid if you total the vehicle. If you let the policy lapse, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your Suzuki at a much higher rate and force you to pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
  • Insurance safeguards your car and your assets. Insurance will pay for medical expenses for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. Liability coverage, the one required by state law, also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If your Suzuki gets damaged, your auto insurance policy will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.

The benefits of buying auto insurance more than cancel out the cost, particularly for liability claims. Despite what companies tell you, the average driver is wasting up to $865 each year so it's important to compare rates at every renewal to ensure rates are competitive.

Insurance discounts help lower rates for Suzuki Kizashi insurance in Jersey City

Insurance is not inexpensive, but you might find some hidden discounts that you may not even know about. Most are applied at the time of quoting, but once in a while a discount must be inquired about before you will receive the discount.Cheaper insurance with discounts

  • Accident Free - Drivers who don't have accidents pay much less in comparison with policyholders that have many claims.
  • Own a Home and Save - Simply owning a home may earn you a small savings because maintaining a house means you have a higher level of financial diligence.
  • Theft Deterrent System - Vehicles equipped with anti-theft or alarm systems can help prevent theft so companies will give you a small discount.
  • Student Driver Training - Require your teen driver to successfully complete driver's ed class as it can save substantially.
  • Military Discounts - Having an actively deployed family member could mean lower premium rates.
  • Accident Waiver - This one is not really a discount per se, but certain companies will turn a blind eye to one accident before your rates go up as long as you don't have any claims prior to being involved in the accident.

Don't be shocked that most discount credits are not given to the entire policy premium. Most cut the cost of specific coverages such as liability, collision or medical payments. Even though it appears you could get a free insurance policy, insurance companies aren't that generous. But all discounts should definitely cut the premium cost.

The diagram below shows the difference between Suzuki Kizashi annual premium costs with and without discounts being applied to the rates. The premium estimates are based on a male driver, no tickets, no at-fault accidents, New Jersey state minimum liability limits, full coverage, and $1,000 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with claim-free, multi-car, marriage, safe-driver, homeowner, and multi-policy discounts applied.

Larger insurance companies and a partial list of their discounts can be read below.

  • Farm Bureau offers premium reductions for renewal discount, safe driver, driver training, good student, and multi-policy.
  • Liberty Mutual offers discounts including good student, teen driver discount, safety features, preferred payment discount, and hybrid vehicle.
  • State Farm may offer discounts for defensive driving training, accident-free, anti-theft, student away at school, safe vehicle, and passive restraint.

Car insurance coverage information

Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy can be of help when determining the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement.

UM/UIM Coverage - Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Suzuki Kizashi.

Due to the fact that many New Jersey drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required (New Jersey limits are 15/30/5), it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy's liability coverage.

Medical costs insurance - Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses for things like nursing services, chiropractic care and pain medications. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Collision - This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers things such as rolling your car, sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with another moving vehicle and crashing into a building. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. It's also possible to raise the deductible on your Kizashi to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision - This coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things like falling objects, vandalism, hitting a bird, hail damage and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount you'll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Auto liability insurance - Liability coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to other people or property. It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 15/30/5 that means you have a limit of $15,000 per injured person, $30,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $5,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability can pay for claims like bail bonds, medical services, emergency aid, pain and suffering and court costs. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but consider buying as large an amount as possible. New Jersey state minimum liability requirements are 15/30/5 but it's recommended drivers buy better liability coverage.

The chart below shows why buying minimum limits may not be adequate.
