Car Insurance for a New Car

Jan 17, 2008
There are many items you can choose with car insurance such as liability only, comp and collision, roadside service, and much more. You can even choose the deductible or amount of the coverage you need for specific aspects of car insurance. When you look at a new car there are a few things to consider regarding insurance. First you need to make sure you have enough coverage on the policy to cover total destruction of the vehicle in order to have the insurance claim come through for you. However I have gotten ahead. Taking a step back let's look at a few options in buying a new car.

When you purchase a new car you may have paid for it out right, leased it, or obtained a car loan. If you have leased the car or obtained a car loan you are required by the banks to have a certain amount of insurance and type of insurance. For the purposes of this article we are going to concentrate on what a bank will require of you when you have a loan or lease.

The car insurance you must have when the car has a loan or lease is liability, comprehensive, and collision insurance. This can run you a rather high premium as the comp and collision usually cost a bit more. The reason the banks require comp and collision is that they need to know the car is fully covered in case there is an accident. The banks in other words need to know they will still get the pay off on the loan even if the car is considered completely damaged. They also ask that you have a certain amount of coverage regarding medical, uninsured motorist and other aspects of the full car insurance coverage. When you have comp and collision you are usually covered for animal damage, fire, and other destruction.

Luckily you are not required to have roadside service or a rental car replacement if the car does go into the garage for work. When you have a new car or a newer car it really is important to make sure everything is covered properly. As you may have found most of the newer cars are so complicated that they require a mechanic trained on the computers and other machines used at the garage to fix even minor issues. Simply replacing the oil in your car can be a hassle depending on the make and model. When you are covered with the proper car insurance whether it is with a loan or lease purchase you will be able to make sure you are covered in the event of accidents whether they are your fault, no fault, or the fault of another driver.

When you change cars you will have to change your coverage. The car insurance company is usually going to tell you that you have to up your insurance when you have a loan or lease. They will also ask this question and it is important to be truthful as they will check and refuse any policy if you have lied.
