Last year, I had my car stolen and then recovered a week later, but not after being told by the inspector for my car insurance that it had become a total loss (because of how the thieves broke in and messed with it), but because it wasn't in such bad shape and still ran well, I insisted on salvaging it. Prior to this incident, it was paid through a car loan from my bank, and because it was a loan, my car insurance required that I meet certain requirements, such as 500 in both Comprehensive and Collision coverage. Now, after the incident, I was granted more money from insurance than what I had left on my car loan, so it was completely paid off, plus the extra money was used towards repairs. With this, my obligation for having 500 in Comprehensive/Collision coverage is finished, and I can lower it if I wanted to. However, I'm not really sure how low to put it because it is now a salvaged vehicle. If you are wondering of the make/model of the car, it is a 96 Honda Civic Ex Sedan 4 dr, and I purchased it used. I haven't really dealt with this sort of stuff, other than what was required of me at the time of signing, and that was many many years ago, so if more information is needed, I can try to supply it. I'm just not sure of what to look at in deciding.
