To save the most money, the best way to get discount Nissan Maxima insurance in Colorado Springs is to start doing an annual price comparison from companies in Colorado.

  1. Spend some time learning about auto insurance and the measures you can control to lower rates. Many factors that cause high rates such as multiple speeding tickets and an imperfect credit score can be amended by making minor changes to your lifestyle.
  2. Quote rates from exclusive agents, independent agents, and direct providers. Exclusive and direct companies can only give prices from one company like GEICO and Allstate, while independent agencies can provide rate quotes from multiple insurance companies.
  3. Compare the new quotes to your existing coverage to see if a cheaper price is available. If you can save some money and buy the policy, make sure there is no lapse in coverage.
  4. Provide adequate notice to your current company of your intention to cancel your current auto insurance policy. Submit a down payment along with a signed application to the new company. Once the application is submitted, safely store the certificate verifying coverage in a readily accessible location in your vehicle.

An important part of this process is to try to use the same amount of coverage on each quote request and and to get rates from every insurance company. Doing this guarantees a fair rate comparison and a good representation of prices.

Discounts applied include multi-policy, multi-vehicle, safe-driver, claim-free, and homeowner. Rates do not factor in garaging location in Colorado Springs which can influence premium rates noticeably.

Based on the figures above, using a $100 deductible costs an average of $43 more each month or $516 annually than requesting the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would have to pay $900 more out-of-pocket with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you usually have at a minimum 21 months between claim filings, you would probably save some money by going with a higher deductible.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $131
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $88
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $43
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $43
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 21 months

The chart below illustrates how your deductible choice and can impact Nissan Maxima premium costs for each different age category. The data assumes a married female driver, full physical damage coverage, and no discounts are factored in.

Nissan Maxima insurance costs by gender and age

The chart below shows the difference between Nissan Maxima car insurance costs for male and female drivers. The data assumes a clean driving record, no claims, comprehensive and collision coverage, $500 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Difference between full coverage and liability only rates

The information below shows the comparison of Nissan Maxima insurance costs with and without full coverage. The costs are based on no claims or driving violations, $250 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

Are you wasting money paying for full coverage?

There is no exact rule of when to eliminate physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than around 10% of the vehicle's replacement cost less your deductible, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

For example, let's assume your Nissan Maxima settlement value is $3,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, you would only receive $2,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If premium cost is more than $200 annually to have full coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.

There are some scenarios where dropping full coverage is not financially feasible. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should keep full coverage.

Why you need auto insurance

Despite the high cost, insurance is mandatory in Colorado but it also protects more than you think.

  • Most states have minimum liability requirements which means you are required to carry a specific minimum amount of liability coverage in order to license the vehicle. In Colorado these limits are 25/50/15 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $15,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If your Nissan Maxima has a loan, most lenders will make it mandatory that you have physical damage coverage to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If the policy lapses, the lender will be forced to insure your Nissan for a lot more money and require you to reimburse them for it.
  • Auto insurance preserves both your car and your assets. Insurance will also pay for medical expenses for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. Liability insurance also pays expenses related to your legal defense if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If damage is caused by hail or an accident, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.

The benefits of buying enough insurance more than offset the price you pay, particularly when you have a large claim. In a recent study of 1,000 drivers, the average customer is currently overpaying as much as $800 each year so we recommend shopping around each time the policy renews to ensure rates are competitive.

Informed Consumers Know How to Quote Auto Insurance Cheaper

An important part of buying insurance is that you know the factors that come into play when calculating your premiums. When you understand what influences your rates, this enables informed choices that can earn you lower rates. Multiple criteria are part of the calculation when premium rates are determined. Some of the criteria are obvious such as your driving history, although some other factors are more obscure such as whether you are married or your vehicle rating.

  • Uninterrupted coverage saves money - Driving without insurance is a misdemeanor and any future policy may cost more because you let your coverage cancel without a new policy in place. In addition to paying higher premiums, the inability to provide proof of insurance might get you a revoked license or a big fine. You may then be required to file a SR-22 with the Colorado motor vehicle department.
  • Additional coverages that may be costing you - There are a lot of extra bells and whistles that can waste your money but may not be useful. Insurance for personal injury protection, death and dismemberment, and Farm Bureau memberships are probably not needed. These coverages may sound good when discussing your needs, but now you might not need them so get rid of them and save.
  • Youthful drivers pay more - Older insureds are more responsible, cost insurance companies less in claims, and tend to be get fewer driving tickets. Inexperience drivers have a tendency to be easily distracted behind the wheel so they pay higher auto insurance rates.

    The next chart uses these assumptions: single driver, full coverage with $100 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.

  • Fewer miles means better costs - The higher the mileage driven in a year the more it will cost to insure it. Most insurance companies calculate prices based upon how much you drive. Vehicles left parked in the garage qualify for better rates as compared to vehicles used primarily for driving to work. Having the wrong rating on your Maxima may be costing you. It's always a good idea to double check that your vehicle rating reflects the right rating data.
  • How credit history affects auto insurance prices - Having a bad credit history is a large factor in determining your rates. If your credit score could use some work, you may save money insuring your Nissan Maxima if you improve your credit rating. Drivers who have very high credit ratings tend to file fewer claims and have better driving records than drivers who have poor credit.
  • Multiple policies with one company - Some insurers apply lower prices to buyers who consolidate policies with them. It's known as a multi-policy discount. This can amount to ten percent or more. Even with this discount, it's in your best interest to check prices from other companies to verify if the discount is saving money.
  • Your stress level may be raising your prices - Jobs such as military personnel, architects, and medical professionals are shown to have the highest average rates attributed to intense work situations and lots of time spent away from family. On the flip side, jobs such as scientists, students and the unemployed have lower than average premiums.

Car insurance discounts are available to lower rates

The price of auto insurance can be rather high, but you might be missing out on some discounts to help bring down the price. Certain discounts will be triggered automatically at the time you complete a quote, but some may not be applied and must be specifically requested before being credited. If you don't get every credit you qualify for, you are just wasting money.Cheaper car insurance with discounts

  • Discount for Low Mileage - Low annual miles may allow you to get better premium rates on cars that stay parked.
  • Seat Belts Save - Buckling up and requiring all passengers to buckle up before driving may be able to save a few bucks on the premium charged for medical payments and/or PIP.
  • Safety Course Discount - Taking a safe driver course could earn you a small percentage discount and easily recoup the cost of the course.
  • Bundle and Save - If you insure your home and vehicles with one insurance company you will save at least 10% off all policies.
  • Accident-Free Discounts - Drivers who don't have accidents get the best car insurance rates as opposed to bad drivers.

Drivers should understand that most of the big mark downs will not be given to the entire cost. Most cut individual premiums such as liability, collision or medical payments. Just because it seems like adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies wouldn't make money that way.

The diagram below visualizes the comparison of Nissan Maxima insurance prices with and without discounts applied to the policy rates. The costs are based on a male driver, no violations or accidents, Colorado state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $100 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with claim-free, homeowner, multi-car, multi-policy, marriage, and safe-driver discounts applied.

Large car insurance companies and a summarized list of policyholder discounts are outlined below.

  • State Farm may include discounts for multiple policy, passive restraint, student away at school, defensive driving training, and Drive Safe & Save.
  • Progressive includes discounts for online signing, homeowner, good student, continuous coverage, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and online quote discount.
  • Progressive may have discounts that include online signing, multi-policy, online quote discount, homeowner, and good student.
  • MetLife discounts include claim-free, accident-free, good student, defensive driver, good driver, multi-policy
  • Farm Bureau has discounts for driver training, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, 55 and retired, youthful driver, and renewal discount.
  • GEICO offers discounts including membership and employees, anti-lock brakes, multi-policy, seat belt use, defensive driver, and emergency military deployment.
  • SAFECO may offer discounts for bundle discounts, safe driver, teen safe driver, accident prevention training, teen safety rewards, and homeowner.

When getting a coverage quote, ask every company how many discounts you can get. Some discounts may not apply to policies in every state.

When comparing car insurance prices, you absolutely need to include rate quotes from at least one independent agent for maximum quote selection.
