Above prices assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Colorado minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, safe-driver, homeowner, multi-vehicle, and multi-policy. Estimates do not factor in Aurora location which can revise premiums noticeably.

Based on these figures, using a $100 deductible costs roughly $28 more each month or $336 a year than requesting the higher $500 deductible. Since you would have to pay $400 more if you file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to go at a minimum 14 months between claim filings, you would probably be better off if you decide on a higher deductible.

Do you need full coverage?

The diagram below visualizes the comparison of Ford Fusion car insurance costs when comparing full coverage to state minimum liability only. The rates are based on no claims or driving violations, $500 deductibles, single male driver, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

When to drop full coverage

There is no exact rule to delete full coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline. If the annual cost of coverage is more than around 10% of replacement cost minus your deductible, then you might consider buying liability only.

For example, let's say your Ford Fusion replacement cost is $6,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most you would get paid by your company is $5,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying more than $500 annually for full coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

There are some scenarios where only buying liability is not recommended. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you are required to maintain full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not remove full coverage.

Car insurance discounts are available to lower rates

Insuring your fleet can be pricey, but there's a good chance there are discounts to help offset the cost. Most are applied when you complete an application, but some discounts are required to be requested specifically before you get the savings.Cheaper car insurance with discounts

As a sidenote, some of the credits will not apply to all coverage premiums. A few only apply to specific coverage prices like medical payments or collision. So even though they make it sound like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, it just doesn't work that way.

Auto insurance companies that may offer these money-saving discounts are:

When getting free Aurora auto insurance quotes, it's a good idea to all companies you are considering which discounts they offer. Some of the discounts discussed earlier may not be available in every state.

Exclusive Insurance Agents

These agents can only provide one company's prices like Allstate and State Farm. Exclusive agents cannot shop your coverage around so they really need to provide good service. Exclusive insurance agents are usually quite knowledgeable on their company's products and that allows them to sell at a higher price point. Some insured continue to purchase coverage from exclusives partially due to loyalty to the company rather than having low rates.

You Can Change Your Insurance Costs

Many things are considered when quoting car insurance. A few of the factors are predictable like an MVR report, although others are more obscure like your continuous coverage or how safe your car is.

Only buy what you need - There are many extra add-on coverages that can add up if you don't pay attention. Things like roadside assistance, death and dismemberment, and extra equipment coverage may not be needed and are just wasting money. You may think they are a good idea when buying your policy, but if you have no use for them remove them from your policy.

How do annual miles impact rates? - Driving a lot of miles in a year the higher your rate. Most companies apply a rate determined by how the vehicle is used. Autos not used for work or commuting qualify for better rates than those that get driven frequently. It's a smart idea to ensure your car insurance declarations sheet reflects the correct usage for each vehicle, because it can save money. An improperly rated Fusion can cost quite a bit.

Marriage reduces risk - Your spouse may cut your premiums on your policy. It may mean you are more mature than a single person and statistics prove drivers who are married are more cautious.

Accidents will cost you - Having a clean driving record can have a huge impact on auto insurance premiums. Even a single speeding ticket could increase your next policy renewal forty percent or more. Drivers with clean records have lower premiums compared to bad drivers. Drivers unfortunate enough to have serious violations like DUI or reckless driving may find they need to file a SR-22 to the state department of motor vehicles in order to legally drive a vehicle.

High credit equals lower costs - An insured's credit score is a big factor in determining what you pay for car insurance. So if your credit score can use some improvement, you could be paying less to insure your Ford Fusion if you improve your credit rating. Consumers who have high credit scores tend to file fewer claims than those with lower credit scores.

Performance impacts insurance costs - The type of car, truck or SUV you need to insure makes a significant difference in your auto insurance rates. Since the Ford Fusion is classified as a passenger car, rates will be similar in price or lower as compared to the average rate in Aurora. Economy passenger models usually are quite affordable to insure, but there are many factors that impact the final cost.

Insurance premiums and driver gender - Over time, data shows that females tend to be a little less risky than males. The data does not necessarily mean that women are better drivers. Both genders cause accidents in similar percentages, but the men get into accidents with more damage. Not only are claims higher, but men get higher numbers of serious violations like DUI and reckless driving.

Insurance losses for a Ford Fusion - Companies take into consideration insurance loss statistics for every vehicle when setting premium prices. Vehicles that tend to have higher prevalence or dollar amount of losses will be charged more to insure.

The next table illustrates the collected loss data for Ford Fusion vehicles. For each coverage category, the statistical loss for all vehicles, as a total average, is set at 100. Percentages below 100 suggest a positive loss record, while numbers above 100 point to more losses or statistically larger losses.
