Having to pay for high-priced Mitsubishi Mirage insurance can dwindle your savings account and force you to cut corners elsewhere. Performing a rate comparison is recommended to make sure you’re not throwing money away.
Many insurance companies vie to insure your vehicles, and because of this it can be hard to compare insurance companies and get the best coverage at the best price available.
There are a lot of ways you can shop for auto insurance but there is one way that is less labor-intensive and much quicker. You can waste hours driving to agents in your area, or you could use online quotes to quickly compare rates.
Many companies take part in a program that enables customers to complete one form, and each participating company returns a rated price based on that information. This prevents consumers from doing repetitive form submissions for each company you want a rate for.

The one disadvantage to doing it this way is buyers cannot specifically choose which providers you will receive quotes from. So if you prefer to pick specific providers for rate comparison, we put together a list of companies who write auto insurance in your area. Click here for list of insurance companies.
Whichever method you choose, make darn sure you compare nearly identical quote information with every price quote. If you use mixed coverages you can’t possibly determine which rate is truly the best. Just slight variations in limits could skew the results. Just keep in mind that obtaining a wide range of quotes increases your odds of finding the best rates.
Auto insurance companies don’t necessarily list all available discounts very well, so the next list breaks down both the well known and the more hidden discounts that you may qualify for.
Don’t be shocked that some of the credits will not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like physical damage coverage or medical payments. So when it seems like adding up those discounts means a free policy, insurance companies wouldn’t stay in business.
A few of the larger companies and the discounts they provide are included below.
When quoting, ask every insurance company how you can save money. A few discounts might not be offered on policies in your state. To view insurance companies that provide some of the discounts listed above, follow this link.
When buying adequate coverage for your vehicles, there really is no cookie cutter policy. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s so your insurance needs to address that. These are some specific questions might point out if your insurance needs may require specific advice.
If you don’t know the answers to these questions but one or more may apply to you, you might consider talking to an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form or go to this page to view a list of companies.
Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are the normal coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Medical expense insurance – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses like hospital visits, doctor visits and surgery. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Mitsubishi Mirage.
Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.
Collision coverages – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims like sustaining damage from a pot hole, crashing into a ditch, rolling your car and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Liability coverage – Liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers claims like emergency aid, medical expenses, funeral expenses and loss of income. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from getting keyed, a broken windshield, vandalism and fire damage. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
