If you haven't shopped for car insurance for awhile you might remember the days when the only option was to visit a local insurance agent. Welcome to the 21st century!

Quote Tip! When doing car insurance quotes for your 2.5TL, make sure you use the exact same values for coverages and deductibles. If you use different limits, you will not be able to fairly compare rates between different companies.
Step Two: Tried and True Ways to Save on 2.5TL Insurance
After step one is complete, it's now time to analyze some of the other factors that can negatively impact car insurance rates for a 2.5TL.
- Good credit will get you lower car insurance rates. Evidence correlates good credit with low claims, so the better you maintain your credit level, the less risk you are to your company.
- One of the easiest ways to cut your rates is to increase your comprehensive and collision deductibles. By having a higher deductible like $500 or even $1,000, you can save 30% or more on physical damage coverage.
- To keep your rates low, don't file excessive claims on your policy. Insurance is meant to cover large losses, not small damage that you can pay for out-of-pocket.
- Car insurance disounts for senior citizens are often offered by companies as well as discounts for belonging to a professional organization.
- One of the easiest ways to keep your rates down is to drive safe. One speeding ticket can boost your rates for three years.
- Successfully completing a driver's training class can help lower your rates if your insurance company offers that discount.
- Gaps in insurance coverage will cause problems for your insurance rates. Don't let your policy expire without having new coverage in place.
- Most Acura vehicles come with standard safety features such as air bags and passive restraints, and those will help keep your insurance costs down.
- Particular years and models of cars tend to be frequently stolen, and if your 2.5TL is on that list, chances are your insurance company knows it and will ding you a little extra because of it.
- If you're a young driver, you will pay more to insure a 2.5TL. There isn't anything you can do about your age, but rates will drop as you mature.
- Bundling your auto and home insurance with the same company can often get you a discount, and just being a homeowner in itself will get you a lower rate.
Step Three: Bind Coverage and Cancel your Old Policy
Knowing which company to insure your 2.5TL with is more than just choosing the lowest rate. You also need to be ready to put a down payment on your policy and make sure you have all the proper coverages in place.
If you didn't have a prior policy, then you can make the new policy effective any time. But if you're moving bewteen companies and don't want a lapse in coverage, make sure the effective date of the new policy is exactly the same as the cancellation date of the old policy.
If you don't currently have a car insurance policy, make sure you have coverage in force before driving your Acura off the lot. But if you already have a policy, you will have coverage extended to your new car from your existing policy. Coverage that extends from an existing policy is only as good as your current coverage. So if you don't carry full coverage on any vehicles, you won't have it on your new 2.5TL.
Once your new policy has been purchased, you are required to keep the proof-of-insurance card in your vehicle at all times. This is required by state law and you can receive a citation if you cannot provide it. If you have received a DUI, reckless driving citation or caused an accident without insurance, you may be required to file an SR-22 with your state DMV. Make sure your new company is aware of the SR-22 filing requirement.
