Insurance rates Mazda CX-7 in Colorado SpringsIf you want to find the absolute lowest rates, then the best way to find cheaper Mazda CX-7 insurance in Colorado Springs is to make a habit of comparing prices annually from companies that sell auto insurance in Colorado.

  • First, try to understand coverages and the things you can control to prevent high rates. Many factors that result in higher prices like speeding tickets, careless driving and a less-than-favorable credit rating can be controlled by making small lifestyle or driving habit changes.
  • Second, obtain price quotes from exclusive agents, independent agents, and direct providers. Direct and exclusive agents can only quote rates from a single company like Progressive or Farmers Insurance, while agents who are independent can provide prices for many different companies.
  • Third, compare the new rates to your current policy and see if you can save money. If you find a better price and buy the policy, make sure coverage does not lapse between policies.
  • Fourth, notify your company or agent of your decision to cancel your current coverage and submit any necessary down payment along with the completed application to the newly selected company. Once the paperwork is finalized, place your new proof of insurance certificate above your visor, in the console, or in the glove compartment.

One key aspect of rate comparisons is to make sure you enter the same deductibles and limits on every quote request and and to get rates from as many auto insurance providers as possible. This helps ensure a fair rate comparison and plenty of rates choose from.

Mazda CX-7 insurance costs by age and gender

The chart below compares Mazda CX-7 auto insurance costs for male and female drivers. The premium estimates are based on a clean driving record, no claims, full physical damage coverage, $100 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

Mazda CX-7 liability-only versus full coverage

The example below illustrates the difference between Mazda CX-7 insurance prices with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Colorado. Data assumes no accidents or driving violations, $250 deductibles, marital status is single, and no additional discounts are factored in.

When to stop buying full coverage

There is no definitive rule to eliminate physical damage coverage, but there is a general guideline. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is about 10% or more of replacement cost minus your deductible, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

For example, let's assume your Mazda CX-7 book value is $5,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most your company would pay you is $4,000 after you pay the deductible. If you are paying in excess of $400 annually for physical damage coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.

There are some conditions where removing full coverage is not advised. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you have to carry full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should keep full coverage.

You Can Change Your Insurance Rates

Lots of factors are used when premium rates are determined. A few of the factors are predictable such as your driving record, but some are more obscure such as your marital status or how safe your car is.

The items below are some of the items used by companies to determine prices.

Car plus home equals more savings - Many insurance companies apply discounts to customers who buy several policies from them in the form of a multi-policy discount. The discount can be anywhere from five to ten percent in most cases. Even with this discount, you still need to compare other company rates to help ensure you have the lowest rates.

Lower premiums with continuous coverage - Having an insurance coverage lapse can be a fast way to drive up your policy premiums. In addition to paying higher rates, not being able to provide proof of insurance may earn you a license revocation or jail time.

Claim-free discounts can add up - Companies in Colorado provide lower rates to policyholders who only file infrequent claims. If you frequently file small claims, you can pretty much guarantee higher premiums or even policy non-renewal. Insurance coverage is designed for major claims that would cause financial hardship.

Is you employer costing you more? - Occupations such as lawyers, executives, and accountants generally pay the highest rates in part from stressful work requirements and long work days. Other careers like scientists, students and retirees have the lowest average rates.

Premiums increase with driving tickets - Your driving record impacts premiums far more than you think. Attentive drivers receive lower rates than their less careful counterparts. Getting just one driving citation can increase rates to the point where it's not affordable. Drivers who have gotten license-revoking violations like reckless driving or DUI may need to submit a SR-22 or proof of financial responsibility with their state's department of motor vehicles in order to legally drive a vehicle.

The chart below demonstrates how citations and at-fault collisions can impact Mazda CX-7 annual premium costs for different age groups. The information is based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $100 deductibles, and no other discounts are factored in.

Raise your deductibles for better rates - Physical damage protection, commonly called comprehensive (or other-than-collision) and collision coverage, insures against damage to your Mazda. Examples of covered claims are a windshield shattered by a rock, damage from fire, and damage from a fallen tree branch. Your deductibles tell how much you are willing to pay before your auto insurance pays a claim. The more damage repair cost you pay before a claim is paid (deductible), the lower your rates will be.
