What should I do if I can't afford car insurance?
I've been shopping around for car insurance, but all the quotes are really really pricey. What if I just can't afford it?
You can try to lower your coverage if you cannot afford your insurance. If you are able to take a defensive driving course in your state, that can help lower your rate as well. You can also take a look at bundling your car insurance with a property insurance policy (home, renters, or condo insurance). Sometimes the discount you get will exceed the price of the property policy.

"I never got a bill for my car loan. What do I do? "
"I bought a new car online three months ago. Financing was provided by the dealer and supposedly handled through a credit union at three percent interest. The credit union has no record of agreeing to finance the car, and the dealer keeps saying that they’re looking into it. I really like the car and want to pay for it. How should I handle this? "

Will my car insurance go up after an accident I never reported?
About eight months ago, I got into a minor fender bender where I was at fault. The damage was negligible and no one was hurt, so no claim or police report was made. Will this accident affect my insurance premium?
