Three reasons to not skimp on car insurance
Despite the high insurance cost for a Honda Ridgeline in Henderson, maintaining insurance may be mandatory for several reasons.
- The majority of states have mandatory insurance requirements which means state laws require a minimum amount of liability insurance if you want to drive legally. In Nevada these limits are 15/30/10 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you took out a loan on your Honda, it’s most likely the lender will force you to have comprehensive coverage to guarantee loan repayment. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the lender will be forced to insure your Honda for a lot more money and force you to pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
- Insurance safeguards both your assets and your vehicle. It will also pay for all forms of medical expenses for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. As part of your policy, liability insurance will also pay attorney fees if someone files suit against you as the result of an accident. If mother nature or an accident damages your car, collision and comprehensive coverages will pay to have it repaired.
The benefits of carrying adequate insurance greatly outweigh the cost, especially with large liability claims. According to a survey of 1,000 drivers, the average driver overpays more than $855 a year so compare quotes from several companies at every policy renewal to save money.

When to drop comp and collision
There is no exact formula that is best for determining when to drop full coverage, but there is a guideline you can use. If the annual cost of having full coverage is about 10% or more of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s say your Honda Ridgeline replacement cost is $9,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most you would get paid by your company is $8,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying in excess of $800 annually to have full coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.
There are a few cases where dropping full coverage is not advised. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to maintain full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if you can’t afford to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not drop full coverage.
