Deciding between full coverage and liability only
There is no exact formula of when to exclude physical damage coverage, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the annual cost of having full coverage is 10% or more of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
For example, let's say your GMC Terrain replacement value is $3,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, you would only receive $2,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If it's costing you more than $200 annually to have full coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some scenarios where removing full coverage is not advised. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you are required to maintain full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should not buy liability only.
