Nissan 370Z liability-only versus full coverage
The information below compares Nissan 370Z premium costs with liability coverage only compared to full coverage. The premiums are based on no claims or violations, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no discounts are applied.
Are you wasting money on full coverage?
There isn’t a written rule of when to phase out full coverage, but there is a general convention. If the annual cost of having full coverage is about 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then it might be time to buy liability only.
For example, let’s say your Nissan 370Z replacement cost is $8,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most you would receive is $7,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If premiums are more than $700 a year for physical damage coverage, then it could be time to drop full coverage.
There are some conditions where eliminating full coverage is not a good idea. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you have to carry full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if you can’t afford to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not remove full coverage.

So even though they make it sound like all the discounts add up to a free policy, it just doesn’t work that way.

Three reasons to insure your Nissan 370Z
Despite the high cost, paying for insurance is required by state law in Nebraska and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.
- Almost all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means you are required to buy a specific level of liability if you don’t want to risk a ticket. In Nebraska these limits are 25/50/25 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
- If your Nissan has a loan, most lenders will have a requirement that you buy insurance to ensure they get paid if you total the vehicle. If coverage lapses or is canceled, the lender will be forced to insure your Nissan at a significantly higher premium and force you to pay for the expensive policy.
- Insurance safeguards both your assets and your car. It also can pay for many types of medical costs for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, also pays expenses related to your legal defense if you are sued as the result of an accident. If you receive damage to your vehicle caused by a storm or accident, your policy will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.
The benefits of insuring your 370Z more than cancel out the cost, specifically if you ever have a liability claim. According to a 2015 survey, the average American driver overpays as much as $810 a year so we recommend shopping around each time the policy renews to make sure the price is not too high.

Auto insurance coverage breakdown
Knowing the specifics of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
This covers damage to your 370Z resulting from a collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for things such as sideswiping another vehicle, scraping a guard rail and crashing into a building. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to bump up the deductible on your 370Z to bring the cost down.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for bills for chiropractic care, funeral costs, X-ray expenses, EMT expenses and rehabilitation expenses. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Nissan 370Z.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits (which is 25/50/25), it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Frequently these coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage pays for things like legal defense fees, structural damage, bail bonds and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible. Nebraska state law requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/25 but you should think about purchasing more coverage.
The chart below demonstrates why the minimum limit may not be high enough to cover claims.
This covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like fire damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane and a broken windshield. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
