Cost estimates assume married male driver age 50, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $100 deductibles, and Indiana minimum liability limits.

Full coverage versus liability-only
The information below examines Chevrolet Suburban premium costs with full phyical damage coverage and with liability coverage only. The data is based on no claims, a clean driving record, $250 deductibles, married female driver, and no discounts are factored in.
When to stop buying full coverage
There is no definitive formula that is best for determining when to drop physical damage coverage, but there is a general school of thought. If the annual cost of coverage is more than about 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.
For example, let's say your Chevrolet Suburban claim settlement value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most your company will settle for is $6,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are paying over $600 a year to have full coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.
There are a few situations where dropping full coverage is not recommended. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you are required to maintain full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not buy liability only.
How to know if you need help
When selecting a policy, there really is no "best" method to buy coverage. You are unique and your policy should reflect that. For instance, these questions might help in determining whether you may require specific advice.
- Is motorclub coverage worth it?
- How many claims can I have before being cancelled?
- Is extra glass coverage worth it?
- Do I need special endorsements for business use of my vehicle?
- Should I carry comprehensive and collision coverage?
- Is pleasure use cheaper than using my Chevy Suburban to commute?
- Am I covered if I wreck a rental car?
- Do I have newly-acquired coverage?
- I have health insurance so do I need medical payments coverage?
