What Kind of Insurance Do You Need for Your GMC Terrain?

Bodily Injury Liability

Bodily injury liability insurance covers costs associated with someone else's injuries if they are the result of an accident you caused while driving your GMC Terrain. In many states, you must carry a minimum amount of bodily injury liability insurance.

Property Damage Liability

Property damage liability insurance is also required in many areas of the country. If you cause an accident and damage someone else's property, this insurance coverage will pay for the damage up to the policy limits.

Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection

Medical payments and personal injury protection insurance cover medical bills associated with recovery from injuries for you and your passengers if you are in an accident. You don't have to wait for the insurance company to decide who was at fault with this type of policy.  Depending on where you live, you may be required to purchase certain amounts of this insurance.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage offers an extra layer of financial protection if you are in an accident that is someone else's fault, but they don't have the right types or amounts of insurance to pay for the damage.  

Optional Coverage:

Collision

Collision insurance coverage handles costs associated with repairing or replacing your GMC Terrain if you are in an accident with another vehicle or you hit a signpost, a tree, or a building.

Comprehensive

A comprehensive insurance coverage policy pays to repair or replace your GMC Terrain in a covered accident, such as hitting an animal in the road or having a tree fall on your SUV. This type of policy also applies if your SUV is vandalized or stolen.

If you have a loan or lease on your GMC Terrain, the bank or dealership may require you to carry full coverage insurance on your GMC Terrain, including comprehensive and collision coverage. Your agent can help you adhere to your bank or dealership guidelines while designing an insurance package that meets your needs.

Glass Coverage

Replacing the windshield in your GMC Terrain is expensive but may not cost enough to reach your deductible. A zero-deductible glass coverage policy helps you get the broken glass fixed without having to pay those costs out of pocket.

Gap Insurance

 If you are in a covered accident and your SUV is a total loss, the insurance company pays the fair market value. If you owe more on your GMC Terrain than it's worth, you are personally financially responsible for paying the difference between the insurance company settlement and the total amount due on the loan or lease. Gap insurance protects you by covering the gap between the amount of money you owe and the amount of money your GMC Terrain is worth.
