Three reasons to insure your Volkswagen vehicle

Even though it's not necessarily cheap to insure a Volkswagen in Minneapolis, maintaining insurance is mandatory in Minnesota but it also protects more than you think.

  • Most states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to buy a specific level of liability insurance coverage if you drive a vehicle. In Minnesota these limits are 30/60/10 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you bought your vehicle with a loan, most lenders will make it mandatory that you buy insurance to ensure loan repayment if the vehicle is totaled. If you default on your policy, the lender may insure your Volkswagen for a much higher rate and force you to pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
  • Car insurance protects both your car and your personal assets. Insurance will also pay for medical bills for you, any passengers, and anyone injured in an accident. Liability insurance also covers legal expenses if you are sued as the result of an accident. If you receive damage to your vehicle caused by a storm or accident, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will pay to have it repaired.

The benefits of carrying adequate insurance are definitely more than the cost, particularly if you ever have a claim. As of last year, the average driver in Minnesota overpays as much as $869 every year so you should quote rates at least once a year to ensure rates are competitive.
