Cost estimates assume single male driver age 40, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, and California minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, claim-free, multi-policy, homeowner, and safe-driver. Prices do not factor in specific location which can revise insurance rates greatly.
Do you need full coverage?
The example below illustrates the difference between Infiniti G37 insurance costs with full coverage compared to only the California minimum liability coverage. The rate quotes are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $100 deductibles, married female driver, and no discounts are factored in.
Are you wasting money paying for full coverage?
There isn’t a written rule for excluding comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a general convention. If the annual cost of coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.
For example, let’s say your Infiniti G37 claim settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most your company would pay you is $7,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are paying in excess of $700 a year for your policy with full coverage, then it could be time to drop full coverage.
There are a few cases where only buying liability is not in your best interest. If you haven’t paid off your loan, you have to maintain full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. 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.

The illustration below highlights how traffic violations and at-fault claims can drive up Infiniti G37 car insurance costs for different age groups. The costs are based on a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $1,000 deductibles, and no additional discounts are factored in.

If you would like to find a local San Diego insurance agency, you must know there are a couple different types of agencies to choose from. San Diego agents can either be independent agents or exclusive agents depending on their employer. Both can sell and service auto insurance coverage, but it’s good to learn how they are different because it can influence the type of agent you choose.
Exclusive Auto Insurance Agents
Exclusive agencies can usually just insure with one company like Farmers Insurance, State Farm, or Allstate. Exclusive agents cannot place coverage with different providers so if the price isn’t competitive there isn’t much they can do. Exclusive agents are very knowledgeable on the products they sell and that allows them to sell at a higher price point.
Shown below is a short list of exclusive agencies in San Diego who may provide you with comparison quotes.
Independent Agents (or Brokers)
These type of agents are not required to write business for one company and that gives them the ability to insure with any number of different companies and find you cheaper rates. To transfer your coverage to a different company, they simply move your policy to a different company and you won’t have to switch agencies.
When comparing auto insurance prices, you need to compare quotes from at a minimum one independent agency for maximum quote selection.
Below is a list of independent insurance agencies in San Diego willing to provide price quote information.
Nationwide Insurance: Richard Turner Insurance Agency
3443 Camino del Rio S #221 – San Diego, CA 92108 – (619) 296-6222 – View Map
If you feel you receive satisfactory answers to any questions you may have as well as a affordable price, most likely you have located an auto insurance agent that is reliable enough to adequately provide auto insurance. Just understand that once you purchase a policy you can cancel your coverage whenever you wish so never assume you are locked into your new company for the entire policy term.
Coverages available on your policy
Having a good grasp of car insurance helps when choosing appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Medical costs insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses for doctor visits, hospital visits and nursing services. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
This can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property in an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see limits of 15/30/5 which stand for $15,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $30,000, and a limit of $5,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability insurance covers things like legal defense fees, loss of income, attorney fees, pain and suffering and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford. California state minimum liability requirements are 15/30/5 but you should think about purchasing better liability coverage.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as theft, hitting a deer and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Infiniti G37.
Due to the fact that many California drivers carry very low liability coverage limits (California limits are 15/30/5), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family.
Auto collision coverage
Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with an object or car. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers claims such as hitting a parking meter, colliding with another moving vehicle and scraping a guard rail. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible on your G37 in order to get cheaper collision rates.
