Can a lender "reverse" my car loan?
I signed all the paperwork for financing and drove my "new" used car off the lot about two weeks ago. Yesterday, I got a call from the dealership telling me that my loan had been reversed. What does this mean?
“The problem is that you never had a loan to begin with. Many dealers do what’s called a “”spot delivery,”” which allows you to drive off the lot without loan approval.
If your loan then gets denied, you’ll get a call from the dealer asking you to bring the vehicle back. In some cases, they may be able to secure some other form of financing.
If not, you can either walk away, go to a different dealer, or find your own financing.”

Can I make a claim on my new Cadillac XT6 if it isn't added to my current policy?
The dealership said they would provide insurance for the first 10 days. A rock ended up cracking my windshield. I'm already insured with AAA and was going to wait to add my vehicle to my policy until the dealership's insurance ran out. Can I just add the car to my policy and submit a claim?

How much will I pay per month on a car if I'm a college student and my mom cosigns on the loan?
I want a $5,000 used car. I can put $2,000 down, and I want to finance the remaining $3,000. I make $1,000 a month with no expenses other than spending money. My mom will cosign for the loan because I have little credit history. How much should I expect to pay?
