Additional car insurance coverages to consider

If you're leasing or financing a vehicle, most lenders require you to carry comprehensive auto coverage and collision auto coverage in addition to Arizona's state-required coverages. Comprehensive and collision pay to repair or replace your car, regardless of fault, if it's in an accident, gets stolen, or is otherwise damaged due to a covered accident. It also makes sense to add these physical damage coverages if you're not sure you could afford a new car or major repairs after an accident.
