When is a good time to lower the coverage on my auto policy?
When is a good time to lower my coverage limits? My vehicle is a 2015 Jeep Compass and my policy limits are 100/300/50. I have had the same coverage on this policy since the day I bought the Jeep six years ago.

“You can do a policy review at any time. Usually, the best time is if you have had any life changes like moving or getting married.
The liability limits you are currently carrying are strong and at the recommended limits.
The only change you would want to make is to increase the limits if you feel that they will not offer enough protection to your current assets.
If you still have full coverage on your Jeep, you may want to keep that as well.
The current actual cash value of a 2015 Jeep Compass is still around $15,000.
If you are looking for a way to lower the rate of your policy, check with your carrier about increasing your comprehensive and collision deductibles. This can be a great way to save without losing any coverage.”

Can I have comprehensive and collision coverage on my 2000 Chevy Cavalier?
Why can't I have whatever coverage I want? I have an old 2000 Chevy, but it is in mint condition. I want to make sure it is fully covered, but my agent keeps telling me that I shouldn't have a comprehensive and collision on such an old car.

My liability-only car was totaled in an accident, now what?
What should I do if liability won't cover all the damage to my car? My 2010 Kia Sportage was deemed a total loss by Progressive. I didn't carry collision coverage so I know I won't get a payout, but I don't think the damage to the car is that bad.
