Premium data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, homeowner, safe-driver, multi-vehicle, and multi-policy. Information does not factor in San Antonio location which can change coverage rates substantially.

Based on these figures, using a $250 deductible will cost you approximately $19 more each month or $228 each year across all Lexus GS 350 models than selecting the higher $500 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $250 more out of your own pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you usually have at least 13 months between claim filings, you would probably come out ahead by selecting a higher deductible.

How to calculate if a higher deductible is a good decision

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $131
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $112
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $19
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $19
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 13 months

One big caveat is that raising deductibles to save money means you pay more out-of-pocket if you have a claim. That will require some funds available in the event you need to pay the deductible.

Full coverage rates vs. liability-only

The chart below shows the difference between Lexus GS 350 auto insurance costs with liability coverage only compared to full coverage. The price estimates are based on no claims or violations, $100 deductibles, drivers are single, and no policy discounts are applied.

When to eliminate full coverage

There is no set guideline to stop buying full coverage, but there is a general school of thought. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is more than 10% of replacement cost minus your deductible, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

For example, let's assume your Lexus GS 350 settlement value is $5,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, you would only receive $4,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If premiums are more than $400 a year for comprehensive and collision coverage, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

There are a few cases where dropping physical damage coverage is not a good plan. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you are required to maintain full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should not remove full coverage.
