What Kind of Insurance Do You Need for Your Honda CRV?

Bodily Injury Liability

Bodily injury liability pays for the other person's medical care after an accident you cause. It's required in most places and is an essential component of your liability policy. 

Property Damage Liability

Property damage liability insurance is legally required. Your agent can help you decide whether it's smart to purchase more than the minimum required amount. 

If you don't have enough bodily injury liability and property damage liability to cover the costs of an accident you cause, you'll have to pay for the remainder out of pocket. 

Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection

Medical payments insurance and personal injury protection pay medical bills for you and your passengers after a covered accident. With this type of coverage, you won't have to wait to find out who is to blame after an accident to get your medical bills paid. 

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage pays to fix or replace your CRV if you are in a covered accident that's not your fault if the other person doesn't have adequate insurance. Without it, you may get stuck with repair and medical bills. 

Optional Coverage:


Collision insurance coverage replaces or repairs your CRV after a covered accident with another vehicle. Your agent can help you understand whether this is a good choice, considering the age and value of your car. 


With comprehensive insurance coverage, you'll get protection from the financial effects of vandalism, theft, and accidents that aren't covered under your collision policy. 

If you have a lease or loan on your CRV, the bank or dealership may require that you carry comprehensive and collision coverage until your the loan or lease on your SUV is paid off. 

Glass Coverage

Replacing your Honda CRV glass can be expensive, but it may not be worth turning in and insurance claim if the cost doesn't go much higher than your deductible. With a zero-deductible glass coverage policy, you'll get a new windshield for a covered event without having to pay for it out of pocket. 

Gap Insurance

Gap insurance helps bridge the "gap" between the total amount you owe on your CRV and the insurance settlement if you are in an accident and your vehicle is a total loss. Without gap insurance, you'll have to pay the remainder of your loan or lease off on your own. 

If you think you owe more on your car than its market value and you didn't buy gap insurance at the dealership where you purchased your new CRV, talk with your agent about how this type of insurance could help you.
