Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Oklahoma minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, safe-driver, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and claim-free. Price information does not factor in specific location which can revise coverage prices substantially.

Based on this data, using a $250 deductible will cost you approximately $18 more each month or $216 each year averaged for all Sonata models than quoting the higher $500 deductible. Since you would pay $250 more to file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you normally average at least 14 months between claim filings, you would more than likely save some money by going with a higher deductible.

Cheaper rates with discounts

Companies offering auto insurance don't always advertise all available discounts very clearly, so we researched both well-publicized and the more hidden ways to save on car insurance. If you do not check that you are getting every discount available, you are paying more than you should be.Save money with discounts

  • Life Insurance Discount - Not every insurance company offers life insurance, but if they do you may earn a small discount if you purchase auto and life insurance together.
  • New Vehicle Savings - Adding a new car to your policy can be considerably cheaper because newer models are generally safer.
  • No Charge for an Accident - This isn't a discount exactly, but a few companies such as Allstate and State Farm will allow you to have one accident without getting socked with a rate hike if you have no claims prior to being involved in the accident.
  • Anti-lock Brake Discount - Anti-lock brake equipped vehicles can avoid accidents and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Paperwork-free - Some car insurance companies will provide an incentive for buying your policy on the web.
  • Air Bags and Passive Restraints - Vehicles equipped with air bags can receive discounts of more than 20%.
  • Claim Free - Drivers who don't have accidents get the best car insurance rates when compared to insureds who have frequent claims or accidents.
  • Defensive Driving Course - Taking time to complete a class that teaches defensive driver techniques is a good idea and can lower rates and easily pay for the cost of the class.
  • Student in College - Any of your kids living away from Tulsa attending college and don't have a car could qualify for this discount.
  • Policy Bundle Discount - If you insure your home and vehicles and insure them with the same company you will save at least 10 to 15 percent or more.

As a disclaimer on discounts, most discount credits are not given to your bottom line cost. Most only reduce specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. Despite the fact that it seems like all the discounts add up to a free policy, company stockholders wouldn't be very happy.

The chart below illustrates the comparison of Hyundai Sonata annual premium costs with and without discounts. The data assumes a male driver, a clean driving record, no claims, Oklahoma state minimum liability limits, comprehensive and collision coverage, and $500 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with safe-driver, homeowner, claim-free, multi-car, marriage, and multi-policy discounts applied.

Companies that have some of the discounts shown above include:

Three reasons to not skimp on car insurance

Even though it can be expensive, buying car insurance may not be optional for several reasons.

  • Most states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means you are required to buy a minimum amount of liability if you want to drive legally. In Oklahoma these limits are 25/50/25 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you took out a loan on your vehicle, almost every bank will force you to buy full coverage to ensure they get paid if you total the vehicle. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the bank may insure your Hyundai at a much higher rate and make you pay for it.
  • Insurance protects both your car and your personal assets. Insurance will also pay for medical expenses for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. Liability insurance will also pay to defend you if you are sued as the result of your driving. If you have damage to your Hyundai as the result of the weather or an accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will pay to repair the damage minus the deductible amount.

The benefits of carrying adequate insurance definitely exceed the cost, especially with large liability claims. But the average American driver is currently overpaying as much as $865 each year so you should quote your policy with other companies each time the policy renews to make sure the price is not too high.

  • Is business equipment covered while in my vehicle?
  • Will my Hyundai Sonata be repaired with OEM or aftermarket parts?

Exclusive agents are usually well trained on their company's products and that enables them to sell even at higher rates. Consumers often use the same exclusive agent mainly due to the prominence of the brand rather than having the cheapest rates.
