Table data represents married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Ohio minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, claim-free, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Rate quotes do not factor in vehicle garaging location which can change insurance rates noticeably.

We can derive from the above data that using a $100 deductible will cost you about $23 more each month or $276 each year across all Saturn VUE models than quoting the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $900 more if you turn in a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you normally go more than 39 months between claim filings, you would probably come out ahead if you elect the higher deductible.

It may be expensive, but it's not optional

Even though Toledo VUE insurance rates can get expensive, buying insurance is required by state law in Ohio and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.

  • The majority of states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means the state requires a specific level of liability in order to drive the car legally. In Ohio 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 Saturn, most banks will force you to have insurance to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your Saturn at a significantly higher premium and force you to pay for the expensive policy.
  • Insurance preserves your vehicle and your assets. It also can pay for medical transport and hospital expenses incurred in an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, will also pay attorney fees in the event you are sued. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.

The benefits of carrying enough insurance definitely exceed the price paid, especially when you need to use it. Today the average American driver is overpaying more than $810 a year so we recommend shopping around at least once a year to ensure rates are competitive.
