Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-policy, homeowner, multi-vehicle, and safe-driver.

Because you would pay $750 more to file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you go more than 20 months between claim filings, you would more than likely save some money if you opt for a higher deductible.

The illustration below highlights how deductible choice and can affect Volkswagen Passat annual premium costs for different age groups. The data assumes a single male driver, full coverage, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Careless driving habits raise Newark car insurance rates

The example below shows how violations and at-fault collisions influence Volkswagen Passat insurance prices for different categories of driver ages. The rates are based on a single male driver, full physical damage coverage, $500 deductibles, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Do you need full coverage?

The chart below illustrates the difference between Volkswagen Passat yearly insurance costs when comparing full coverage to liability only. The data assumes no violations or claims, $250 deductibles, marital status is single, and no additional discounts are factored in.

When to buy liability coverage only

There is no clear-cut rule to delete full coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the annual cost of having full coverage is about 10% or more of replacement cost minus your deductible, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

For example, let's pretend your Volkswagen Passat claim settlement value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would get paid by your company is $6,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are currently paying more than $600 annually to have full coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

There are some scenarios where only buying liability is not a good idea. If you haven't paid off your loan, you have to carry full coverage in order to satisfy the requirements of the loan. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not drop full coverage.

When in doubt talk to an agent

Always keep in mind that when comparing coverage online or from an agent for your vehicles, there isn't really a perfect coverage plan. Your needs are unique to you.Higher deductibles save money

  • What is an umbrella policy?
  • Does insurance cover damages from a DUI accident?
  • When should I have rental car coverage?
  • If I drive on a suspended license am I covered?
  • Is my vehicle covered by my employer's policy when using it for work?
  • Can I cancel at any time?
