Q: Do I need full coverage on my 2010 Mazda3?
Apr 30, 2021

I currently have full coverage on my 2010 Mazda 3, but it's paid off and worth about $5,000. Should I reduce coverage to liability only?

“The amount of coverage you decide to carry really depends on what is important to you. The best thing you can do is compare how much liability coverage only would cost compared to what you are currently paying.

After that, you should think about your own financial situation. If your car was totaled, would you be able to afford a new vehicle without a payout from your comprehensive coverage or collision coverage?

If your finances wouldn’t allow you to make a down payment on a new vehicle, look at raising your deductibles for full coverage. This can save you some money without reducing your coverage.

While you could reduce your coverage to liability only, be sure to keep your coverage limits as high as you can afford.

This app is truly amazing and I recommend it to everyone. They were able to save me over $100/yr on car insurance, and I hardly had to do a thing. They got finalized quotes for me in minutes, and I didn't have to call anyone. They also canceled my old policy, and got me on to my new one for me!
