Finding affordable coverage for a Toyota Tacoma in Colorado is pretty easy to do, but it is dependent upon a large number of factors such as how you use your Tacoma, your geographic location, and your policy deductibles. Drivers in Colorado will pay on average $1,230 per year for Tacoma insurance, but that figure is an approximation calculated based on a 30-year-old single male driver with full physical damage coverage and $250 deductibles.
The problem with using this number is the good chance you may not be 30 years old (or even male), possibly married instead of single, and you want different coverage limits than the example. Every driver’s needs are different, and that is why the way we recommend to find the cheapest rates for your Toyota is to compare as many rates as possible. To start saving now, get free quotes and you can get rates from the cheapest companies in Colorado.

How accidents and tickets impact rates in Aurora
In a perfect world, the best way to snag the most affordable car insurance prices in Colorado for a Tacoma is to drive carefully and avoid at-fault accidents and violations. The example below shows how speeding tickets and accident claims drive up annual premium costs for different age groups of insureds. The information is based on a married male driver, comp and collision included, $250 deductibles, and no additional discounts are factored in.
The chart shows that the average cost of auto insurance in Colorado per year with a clean driving record and no accidents is $1,993. Factor in two speeding tickets and the average cost surges to $2,758, an increase of $765 each year. Now throw in two accidents along with the two speeding tickets and the 12-month cost of car insurance for a Toyota Tacoma increases to an average of $5,514. That’s an increase of $3,521, or $293 per month, just for not driving safely!
Full coverage or liability only
Lowering the price of car insurance should be important to the majority of drivers, and one of the fastest ways to lower the cost of insurance for a Toyota Tacoma is to only pay for liability coverage. The chart below illustrates the difference between yearly insurance costs with full physical damage coverage and with liability coverage only. The premium estimates are based on no violations or claims, $500 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no discounts are factored in.
If we average the cost for all age groups, full coverage on your policy costs an additional $1,960 per year over liability only. Many people question if physical damage coverage is worth the money. There is no clear-cut formula of when to stop paying for comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a general convention. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than about 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.
For example, let’s say your vehicle’s book value is $6,500 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, you would only receive $5,500 after the deductible is paid. If it’s costing in excess of $550 annually for physical damage coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.
There are some scenarios where dropping full coverage is not recommended. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you are required to maintain full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not drop full coverage.
Don’t stick with an overpriced policy
Colorado car insurance rates are calculated based on many things that may substantially change the policy price. Simply turning a year older, having a teen driver, or getting a driving violation can trigger changes in premium that can now make some companies more affordable than before.
Additionally, car insurance companies change rates without warning to adjust for heavy claims or excess profits. Higher than normal claims may cause rate increases, while lower claim levels can produce lower-priced Tacoma insurance rates.
The chart below shows the companies that have the cheapest car insurance in Aurora, CO for a 30-year-old male driver with no prior accidents, a clean driving record, and a decent credit rating.
