Insurance is an important decision
Despite the fact that insurance is not cheap in Chula Vista, insurance serves an important purpose.
- The majority of states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means you are required to buy a specific level of liability in order to drive the car legally. In California these limits are 15/30/5 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you took out a loan on your Audi Q3, more than likely the lender will require that you buy insurance to guarantee payment of the loan. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the bank may buy a policy for your Audi at a significantly higher premium and require you to reimburse them for it.
- Insurance protects not only your vehicle but also your financial assets. It will also provide coverage for hospital and medical expenses that are the result of an accident. Liability coverage, the one required by state law, also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if you cause an accident and are sued. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.
The benefits of carrying adequate insurance are without a doubt worth the cost, especially if you ever need it. According to a survey of 1,000 drivers, the average driver is currently overpaying as much as $750 every year so shop around every year to be sure current rates are still competitive.
