Prices above based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Jersey minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, claim-free, and homeowner. Price information does not factor in vehicle location which can raise or lower auto insurance rates noticeably.

Based on this data, we can arrive at the conclusion that using a $250 deductible costs roughly $22 more each month or $264 each year across all Lincoln MKZ models than selecting the higher $500 deductible. Since you would have to pay $250 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you usually have at a minimum 11 months between claim filings, you would probably save some money going with the higher deductible.

The example below highlights how deductible selection and can raise or lower Lincoln MKZ insurance premiums for different ages of insureds. The prices are based on a married male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no discounts are factored in.

Cost of full coverage

The information below visualizes the comparison of Lincoln MKZ premium costs with full physical damage coverage and with liability coverage only. The premiums assume a clean driving record, no claims, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are factored in.

Deciding between full coverage and liability only

There is no definitive rule of when to drop comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a general convention. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

For example, let's pretend your Lincoln MKZ replacement cost is $8,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, you would only receive $7,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are paying over $700 annually for full coverage, then it could be time to drop full coverage.

There are some circumstances where removing full coverage is not a good plan. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you have to carry full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not drop full coverage.
