Is car insurance mandatory in every state?
Do I need auto insurance no matter where I move in the U.S.?
“That is a great question!
All but two states, Virginia and New Hampshire, require that you carry car insurance on a registered vehicle.
In the case of Virginia, there is a yearly $500 uninsured vehicle fee. It will not cover you if there’s an accident.
In New Hampshire, if you get into an at-fault collision, you will be financially responsible.
Each state has its own specific requirements for minimum coverage needed to be compliant with state law. Even though car insurance is not required in Virginia and New Hampshire, it’s still recommended.

Should I finance through Hyundai Motor finance to get incentives and then refinance through my credit union?
I want to buy a new Hyundai Kona. Hyundai Motor Finance is currently offering up to $3,500 worth of incentives. The only problem is that they want to give me an interest rate of 5.99% compared to 2.9% from my credit union. Can I finance through Hyundai and then refinance immediately through my credit union?
