Table data represents married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, homeowner, claim-free, multi-vehicle, and multi-policy.

Due to the fact that you would have to pay $250 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to have at least 16 months between claim filings, you would most likely save money if you elect the higher deductible.

The Subaru Forester Insurance Cost Equation

Consumers need to have an understanding of the factors that help calculate the level of your policy premiums. When consumers understand what influences your rates, this enables informed choices that could help you find cheaper rates.

The factors shown below are some of the factors auto insurance companies consider when setting rates.

  • Know your vehicle's safety rating - Vehicles that have high safety ratings tend to have better insurance rates. Vehicles built for safety reduce the chance of injuries and lower rates of occupant injuries translates directly to fewer claims and cheaper rates on your policy.
  • Bad driving means higher costs - Having just one moving violation can bump up the cost twenty percent or more. Attentive drivers get better prices than their less careful counterparts. Drivers who have gotten careless violations such as DUI, reckless driving or excessive speeding are required to file a SR-22 with the DMV in their state in order to prevent their license from being revoked.

    The illustration below demonstrates how speeding tickets and at-fault collisions increase Subaru Forester premium costs for different insured age categories. The premium estimates are based on a married male driver, comp and collision included, $500 deductibles, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

  • Do thieves like your car? - Driving a car with a theft deterrent system can save you a little every year. Anti-theft devices such as vehicle immobilizer systems, OnStar, and tracking devices like LoJack all help prevent your car from being stolen.
  • Multiple policies with one company - Some insurance companies allow discounts to customers that buy multiple policies such as combining an auto and homeowners policy. Even with this discount, it's still a good idea to compare other Arlington Forester insurance rates to confirm you are receiving the best rates possible. You may still be able to save even more than the discount by buying auto insurance from a different company.
  • Pay more for higher performance vehicles - The performance level of the car, truck or SUV you are buying insurance for makes a big difference in your auto insurance rates. Lower performance four cylinder passenger cars usually are quite affordable to insure, but other factors influence the final cost greatly.

    The next chart uses these assumptions: single male driver age 50, full coverage with $1000 deductibles, and no discounts or violations. It compares Subaru Forester insurance rates compared to other makes and models that have a range of risk factors.

  • Insurance is expensive for youthful drivers - Older people are more responsible, file fewer claims, and usually have better credit. Youthful drivers are statistically proven to be careless and easily distracted when driving so they pay higher auto insurance rates.

    The following data is based on a single driver, full coverage with $500 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.

  • Poor credit can mean higher costs - An insured's credit score is a large factor in determining what you pay. If your credit is low, you could save money insuring your Subaru Forester if you improve your credit rating. Drivers with very high credit ratings tend to be more responsible than those with poor credit.
  • Subaru Forester insurance loss probability - Insurance companies analyze claim trends for every vehicle to calculate a price that offsets possible losses. Vehicles that historically have higher claim frequency or loss amount will cost more for coverage. The next table illustrates the insurance loss data used by companies for Subaru Forester vehicles.

    For each policy coverage, the claim probability for all vehicles averaged together is set at 100. Values that are 100 or less suggest a better than average loss history, while values that are 100 or greater indicate more frequent claims or statistically larger claims.

  • Fourth, give notification to your agent or company to cancel the current policy and submit a down payment along with a completed application to your new carrier. As soon as coverage is bound, safely store the certificate verifying coverage in an easily accessible location in your vehicle.

The most important part of shopping around is to make sure you're comparing the same coverage limits and deductibles on every price quote and and to compare every company you can. This ensures a fair price comparison and a complete rate analysis.
