Insure your Nissan NX for Much Less than you Think
If searching for lower car insurance rates was a good time, we'd have no problem finding the best rate. But the premiums we pay always seem to be too high and most of use would rather get a tooth pulled. Finding affordable insurance for your Nissan NX is probably the same story.
Step One: Compare Rates from Multiple Companies
The old-fashioned method of shopping for car insurance included visiting several local insurance agents and being on the receiving end of a hard sell tactic. Welcome to the 21st century!

Quote Tip! When doing car insurance quotes for your NX, 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 NX Insurance
What you actually pay to insure your Nissan is determined by many factors, some of which you have no control over.
- If you've recently completed a driver's training or safety course, tell your insurance company. You may qualify for a 5-10% discount.
- Car insurance disounts for senior citizens are often offered by companies as well as discounts for belonging to a professional organization.
- The easiest way to INCREASE your car insurance rates is to add a teenage driver to your policy. There aren't many ways to prevent a rate increase, but if you can rate them on an older vehicle, it can help.
- A claim-free discount can help keep your rates down, so don't file claims that are only marginally more than your deductible. You're better off keeping the discount.
- If you have a high credit score, you will be rewarded with lower insurance rates. Conversely, if your credit rating is on the low site, your rates will be higher.
- If you own a home, you may get a break on your car insurance. Home ownership demonstrates financial responsibility.
- Higher deductibles save money. If you can afford to pay a larger portion of a comprehensive or collision claim, you will pay substantially less for those coverages if you increase your deductibles to $500 or even $1,000.
- If your Nissan is equipped with safety features such as airbags, anti-lock brakes or a security system, insurance companies will often give a minor discount for those.
- A single speeding ticket can cost you several hundreds of dollars over the next three years thanks to increased car insurance rates. Slow down and drive safely.
- If switching companies, always have the effective date of the new policy be identical to the expiration date on the old policy. This prevents a lapse in coverage and companies charge higher rates if you have any lapses.
- Thieves tend to steal certain makes and models of vehicles more than others, and if your car is on that list, expect to pay higher insurance rates because of it.
Step Three: Finalize your Car Insurance Policy
Knowing which company to insure your NX 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.
An important thing to keep in mind when buying a new policy is you want the effective date of the new policy to be the exact same as the date you are cancelling your old policy.
If you don't currently have a car insurance policy, make sure you have coverage in force before driving your Nissan off the lot. But if you already have a policy, you will have coverage extended to your new car from your existing policy. The coverage extended to an add-on vehicle is only as good as the coverage on existing vehicles, so if none of your current insured vehicles have full coverage, your new NX won't have it either. So in that case, it's important to call your agent or company directly from the dealership and have them bind coverage immediately.
Once you finish buying your new policy, you will need to print out the proof-of-insurance card that is provided by your new company. This card is proof that you meet the state's minimum liability limits and is required to be kept in your vehicle. If you are required to file an SR-22 with your state, your new insurance company will take care of that for you. If you cancel your coverage for any reason, you risk the loss of your driver's license.
