Criteria which help determine Taurus insurance quotes

Insurance premiums for a Ford Taurus will vary greatly depending on several factors. A few of these criteria are:

  • Higher performance Taurus vehicles cost more
  • Your accident history
  • Multiple policies can save money
  • Use of your vehicle
  • Optional coverages like vehicle replacement
  • Your job
  • The amount of protection requested
  • Owning a home can lower rates

One important consideration that helps determine your rates is the age of the vehicle. Older models have a much lower replacement value compared to new Ford models so repair costs tend to be lower which may result in lower rates. But newer vehicles have more advanced features including traction control, adaptive headlights, and automatic crash notification so those may give discounted rates.

To get more specific information about how much rates will be for your vehicle, select the year of your Taurus from the following list.

Liability

This coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. Liability insurance covers claims such as funeral expenses, loss of income, and emergency aid. Coverage is generally pretty cheap so buy as much as you can afford.

Collision protection

Collision insurance covers damage to your Ford caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in. Taurus collision insurance is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. It's also possible to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay. The maximum amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle's value is low it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle when the "other guys" either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Medical costs insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for bills like ambulance fees, surgery, and doctor visits. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
