When people mention "full coverage," what they usually mean is liability, collision, and comprehensive. That’s a good start, but it’s not precisely total coverage.
Chances are, "full coverage" is going to leave you with a gap in your expenses. Your car begins to depreciate the minute you take it off the lot, and collision and comprehensive probably won’t pay you quite what you need to replace it. And if you’re still paying it off, you have to keep paying it off even if it’s been totaled.
Complete coverage will include liability, collision, and comprehensive, as well as the following:
- Gap coverage. If you’re still making payments, gap insurance will cover the difference.
- New car replacement insurance. This will cover the purchase of a new car of the same make and model. But if you want to be covered, you might want to consider…
- Better car replacement insurance. This will cover you for the purchase of a new car one year newer than the one that was totaled. Even if you plan on buying the same vehicle, this will give you a little breathing room for shopping around various at various dealerships.
