Finding the best cheap auto insurance for a Honda Civic in North Carolina hinges on a lot of rating factors such as whether you are male or female, if you are a frequent claim filer, and your driving record. North Carolina drivers will pay on average $822 each year for Civic insurance, but that figure is an approximation calculated using a 40-year-old single female driver with full physical damage coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
There’s a good chance you’re not a 40-year-old female, you might be married instead of single, and you might want liability-only or different deductibles. Even a minor difference in the factors used in pricing a policy can result in a big discrepancy in the price of a policy.
There is no perfect policy for every driver, so the best method for finding the cheapest rates for your Honda is to compare as many rates as possible. It only takes a couple of minutes and you will receive prices from the best companies that insure Honda vehicles in North Carolina.

The first bar for each age group shows the average annual price with no discounts. The lower bar shows the rates with multiple policy, passive restraint, defensive driving course, safe-driver, vehicle safety, and accident-free discounts applied.

Rate comparison of full coverage and liability-only
Finding cheaper car insurance should be important to most vehicle owners, and one good way to buy cheap insurance for a Honda Civic is to not pay for full coverage. The diagram below shows the difference between annual premium costs with and without physical damage coverage, medical payments, and uninsured/under-insured motorist coverage. The rate quotes are based on no claims or violations, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are single, and no additional discounts are factored in.
Averaged for all age groups, physical damage coverage costs $1,292 per year more than insuring for liability only. Many drivers will wonder if buying full coverage is worth the expense. There is no written rule that works best for making the decision to drop physical damage insurance, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of coverage is about 10% or more of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then it might be time to buy liability only.
There are a few cases where dropping physical damage coverage is not recommended. If you haven’t satisfied your loan, you have to keep full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not opt for liability only.
