Buying the cheapest auto insurance for a Honda Civic in Texas doesn’t take a ton of time, but it is dependent upon a complicated rating formula that uses factors such as the safety rating for your Civic, if you have prior claims, and your choice of deductibles. Drivers in Texas pay on average $1,722 per year for Civic insurance, but that amount is a projection based upon a 30-year-old single female driver with full comprehensive and collision coverage and $250 deductibles.
When projecting a rate like this, the problem is that you are not 30 and maybe not even a female, possibly married instead of single, or maybe you rent instead of own your home. Having what appears to be a very minor change in the criteria used to calculate rates can result in a large change in the amount insurance costs for a Honda Civic.
This demonstrates why the only way to find the cheapest rates for your Honda is to compare as many rates as you can.

Rate difference between full and liability-only coverage
Finding the cheapest car insurance is important to most drivers, and one of the quickest ways to find cheaper insurance for a Honda Civic is to only buy liability coverage. The diagram below visualizes the comparison of annual premium costs with and without full coverage. The costs are based on no claims or driving citations, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are taken into consideration.
As an average for all age groups, full coverage costs an extra $2,388 per year over liability only. That may make you wonder when is the right time to remove full coverage. There isn’t a written rule to eliminate physical damage coverage, but there is a broad guideline. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is about 10% or more of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.
For example, let’s assume your vehicle’s book value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would receive is $6,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are paying over $600 a year for your policy with full coverage, then it’s probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.
