Buying economical auto insurance for a Chevrolet Equinox in California relies on a complicated formula that considers factors such as the safety rating for your Equinox, if you have prior claims, and the deductible amount you use. Drivers pay approximately $1,060 a year to insure their Equinox, but that cost is a projection calculated based on a 30-year-old married male driver with both comprehensive and collision coverage and $1,000 deductibles.

It's highly likely you are not 30 years old and maybe not even male, possibly single instead of married, and maybe your Equinox just needs liability-only coverage. Each driver's needs are different, and that demonstrates why the best way to find cheap auto insurance rates for your Chevrolet is to just take the time to compare rates yourself.

Comparison of full coverage and liability-only policies

Paying a lower price for insurance is probably important to the majority of vehicle owners, and a good way to buy cheaper insurance for a Chevrolet Equinox is to only buy liability insurance. The chart below compares insurance premiums with liability coverage only compared to full coverage. The rates are based on no violations or accidents, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Averaged out for all age groups, physical damage coverage on your policy costs $2,656 per year more than just buying liability insurance. That brings up the question if it's a good idea to buy full coverage. There is no definitive guideline for phasing out physical damage insurance, but there is a general convention. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than around 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's pretend your vehicle's claim settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most your company will settle for is $7,000 after paying your deductible. If it's costing in excess of $700 a year to have full coverage, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
