Paying for high-priced Subaru Forester insurance can dwindle your savings account and make it hard to pay other bills. Comparing price quotes is free, only takes a few minutes, and is a good way to lower your monthly bill. There are many insurance companies to pick from, and although it’s a good thing to have a choice, it can be more challenging to adequately compare rates.

How to Get Insurance Coverage

Finding cheaper 2005 Subaru Forester insurance coverage prices is not rocket science. You just have to spend a few minutes on the computer comparing price quotes provided by online insurance companies. This can be accomplished in just a few minutes using one of these methods.

  1. The best way to get quotes for comparison would be an industry-wide quote request form click to view form in new window. This method prevents you from having to do separate forms for each company. Filling out one form will return quotes from multiple companies.
  2. A different way to analyze rates requires a visit to the website of each company to complete a price quote. For sake of this example, we’ll pretend you want comparison quotes from Nationwide, Allstate and Farmers. You would have to visit each site to input your insurance information, and that’s why the first method is more popular. For a handy list of car insurance company links in your area, click here.
  3. The most time-consuming way of getting rate comparisons is to spend your day driving to and from local insurance agencies. The internet eliminates the need for an insurance agent unless you prefer the professional advice of a licensed agent. It is possible to comparison shop your insurance online and still use a local agent and we’ll cover that in a bit.

Which method you use is up to you, but make sure you use identical coverage information with every price quote. If your comparisons have different values for each quote then you won’t be able to determine which rate is truly the best.

What is the best insurance coverage?

When buying the best insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a “perfect” insurance plan. Each situation is unique and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. For example, these questions may help you determine if your situation may require specific advice.

  • Can I drive in Mexico and have coverage?
  • Are my tools covered if they get stolen from my vehicle?
  • Are split liability limits better than a combined single limit?
  • Does my policy cover my teen driver if they drive my company car?
  • Should I carry comprehensive and collision coverage?
  • How can I get my company to pay me more for my totalled car?
  • What is roadside assistance coverage?
  • Do I need added coverage for expensive stereo equipment?
  • What is the ISO rating for a 2005 Subaru Forester?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions, you may need to chat with an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, take a second and complete this form or click here for a list of insurance companies in your area. It is quick, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Detailed coverages of your car insurance policy

Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverage types found on the average car insurance policy.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism, fire damage, rock chips in glass and hitting a bird. The maximum payout your car insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.

Collision protection

This coverage covers damage to your Forester from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage pays for claims like damaging your car on a curb, hitting a parking meter, rolling your car, hitting a mailbox and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Most of the time these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Insurance for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like surgery, chiropractic care, doctor visits, dental work and nursing services. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Auto liability

Liability insurance protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 bodily injury coverage, $300,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as attorney fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and legal defense fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
