Data variables include married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Colorado minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, claim-free, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and homeowner. Table data does not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can influence prices noticeably.

We can derive from the above data that using a $250 deductible will cost you approximately $15 more each month or $180 a year across all Chevrolet HHR models than opting for the higher $500 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $250 more out-of-pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you go at least 17 months between claims, you would save more money if you opt for a higher deductible. The table below illustrates the way this determination is made.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $111
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): – $96
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $15
Difference between deductibles ($500 – $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $15
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 17 months

Reckless driving habits raise Aurora auto insurance rates

The information below shows how traffic citations and at-fault accidents can increase Chevy HHR auto insurance rates for different age groups. The premiums are based on a single male driver, comp and collision included, $1,000 deductibles, and no other discounts are factored in.

Auto insurance rates by age and gender

The example below compares Chevy HHR annual premium costs for male and female drivers. The information is based on no claims or driving citations, comp and collision included, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no policy discounts are applied.

Full coverage versus liability-only

The chart below compares Chevy HHR insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Colorado. Data assumes no claims or driving citations, $250 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are applied.

Deciding between full coverage and liability only

There is no definitive formula to eliminate physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you might consider buying liability only.

For example, let’s assume your Chevy HHR book value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, you would only receive $5,000 after the deductible is paid. If it’s costing in excess of $500 a year for full coverage, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

There are a few situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not a good idea. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should maintain full coverage.

Get Cheaper Insurance Costs by Understanding These Factors

The best way to find cheaper car insurance is to take a look at the different types of things that come into play when calculating car insurance rates. If you know what controls the rates you pay, this allows you to make good choices that can help you get cheaper rates. Many factors are part of the equation when you get a price on insurance. Some are pretty understandable like an MVR report, but other factors are less obvious like your vehicle usage and annual miles driven.

Low mileage costs less – The more miles you rack up on your Chevy in a year the more you will pay for car insurance. A lot of insurance companies price each vehicle’s coverage based on their usage. Cars and trucks that sit idle most of the time can be on a lower rate level than those that get driven frequently. It’s a good idea to make sure your vehicle rating shows how each vehicle is driven, because it can save money. Improper usage on your HHR may be costing you.

Lower rates come with age – More mature drivers are more responsible, cause fewer claims and accidents, and usually have better credit. Young drivers are statistically proven to be inattentive and easily distracted when at the wheel of a vehicle therefore car insurance rates are much higher.

The next chart uses these variables: single driver, full coverage with $250 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.

When should you not file claims? – Companies in Colorado award most affordable rates to drivers who only file infrequent claims. If you tend to file frequent claims, you can pretty much guarantee higher rates. Auto insurance is intended to be relied upon for the large, substantial claims.

Get cheaper rates if you’re married – Having a wife or husband may save some money on car insurance. It means you’re more financially stable it has been statistically shown that being married results in fewer claims.

Higher premiums for tough jobs – Do you work in a high-stress field? Occupations such as real estate brokers, executives, and financial analysts are shown to have higher premium rates in part from intense work-related stress and lots of time spent at work. On the other hand, professions such as professors, historians and retirees get better rates.

Alarms and GPS tracking lower car insurance rates – Driving a car that has an advanced theft prevention system can save you some money. Theft prevention devices like tamper alarm systems, vehicle immobilizer technology and General Motors OnStar can help prevent auto theft.

Lower rates for vehicles with better crash test results – Safer cars cost less to insure. Safer cars protect occupants better and lower injury rates translates into savings for insurance companies and lower rates for you. If your Chevy HHR scored better than an “acceptable” rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website or four stars on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website it may cost less to insure.

Raise coverage deductibles and save – The deductibles you choose define the amount you are required to spend if you file a covered claim. Insurance for physical damage, otherwise known as comp (or other than collision) and collision, insures against damage to your car. Some examples of claims that would be covered are collision with another vehicle, damage caused by hail, and damage caused by road hazards. The higher the amount you’re willing to pay, the less money you will pay for car insurance.

Get cheap rates with discounts

Insurance is not an enjoyable expense, but you might be missing out on some discounts to cut the cost considerably. Most are applied when you complete an application, but less common discounts must be specifically requested in order for you to get them.Save money with discounts

As a sidenote, most of the big mark downs will not be given to the overall cost of the policy. The majority will only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as liability, collision or medical payments. So when the math indicates all those discounts means the company will pay you, you aren’t that lucky.

The chart below visualizes the comparison of Chevy HHR insurance rates with and without discounts applied to the policy rates. The costs are based on a female driver, no driving violations, no at-fault accidents, Colorado state minimum liability limits, comp and collision included, and $500 deductibles.
