Do I need to keep full coverage on 2013 Toyota Corolla once I pay it off?
I'm going to be paying off my car soon and I'm considering dropping my full-coverage insurance. My six-month premium would be cut in half with just liability. My car isn't in the best shape, so I'm not really concerned about damage.

“As most finance companies require that you maintain comprehensive coverage and collision coverage, you could drop them once you pay off your loan.
However, before you switch to liability insurance only, you should consider the cost of getting a new vehicle if your Camry is totaled.
If you wouldn’t have trouble financing a new car, then you can drop your full coverage. But if it would be difficult to obtain another vehicle, you should maintain full coverage.
If you mainly want to drop full coverage to save money, you should first get quotes from other car insurance carriers. By shopping around, you may be able to find a more affordable rate for full coverage.

Why is my uninsured motorist coverage so high in Maine?
My car is only worth $6,000 and I have a $50,000/$100,000 limit for uninsured motorist bodily injury. I also have a $50,000 limit for uninsured motorist property damage. I have full coverage on my vehicle and don't really understand why I have to have such high limits.
