Factors such as driving history and credit score are often used in the calculation of an insurance premium. Both of these are usually a measure of responsibility on the driver’s part. The more responsible you are, the less likely you are to be the cause of an accident, so your rates with decrease accordingly.
You might even consider trimming the fat on your insurance policy. Perhaps you haven’t had an accident in a number of years, and you’re a relatively vigilant and safe driver. Consider raising your collision and comprehensive deductible. You’re paying more for coverage that it doesn’t look like you really need. It is a trade-off, a lower deductible results in higher monthly premiums, but a higher deductible results in savings to you monthly unless you have an accident.
The 2012 DTS hasn’t been tested by the IIHS or federal government, but they have tested the 2011 DTS a bit. The IIHS for example, gave the DTS a score of “good” on frontal crash tests, and a score of “acceptable” on side-impact tests. The federal government also gave it 4/5 stars on rollover crash tests, though little else. These ratings are generally important because they can lower your premium.
