NEW CARS COULD LOWER INSURANCE RATES
“The mechanic called me with bad news…again. I can’t take it anymore. I just can’t keep pouring money into my old car!”
New Vs. Used
After years of hassle and thousands of dollars spent to fix my old car, I wasn’t excited about buying “used.” The more miles on the odometer the more problems it could have, right? And I just didn’t want to go down that road again!
I really wanted a fresh start with a brand-new car. But, I was warned that because new cars are worth more, the costs associated with them would be higher. I’d heard that insurance, without a doubt, would be much more expensive. Then I started to crunch the numbers for myself, and discovered some information that changed the way I thought about buying a car.
A new car can actually be cheaper to insure than a used one.
Safer Cars Save Money
Today’s safety technology makes new cars safer. And safer cars save insurance companies money.
Car insurance rates are determined by the potential damage to your car, and the personal injuries to passengers caused by accidents. So, having more modern safety features on newer cars could lower your rates.
Take automatic seat belts. The upgrade, of the same seat belt we’ve used in cars for decades, has proven to reduce the amount of injuries in accidents; and decreased injuries means less money the insurance company has to pay out.
In recent years, the addition of airbags, anti-lock brakes, and daytime running lights have made a strikingly positive impact on the nation’s automobile safety statistics. And that has already gone towards potentially lowering your car insurance rates.
New Advances Change The Way We Drive
Many new car models offer collision avoidance technologies like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and blind spot detection systems. Why not buy the car best equipped to protect you– and give you peace of mind?
Since technology is constantly evolving and improving, the only way to keep up with state-of-the-art equipment – and the safety benefits it offers - is to buy the newest car on the market.
