Can I add my 22-year-old daughter to my car insurance?
I'm cosigning a loan for my daughter to buy her first car. Can I cover my daughter and her car with my own policy?
If your daughter lives in your home, then yes, you can add her to your policy.
But if your daughter lives separately from you, you’ll have more difficulty. This is because car insurance companies generally don’t like to add drivers who don’t live in the listed residence to a policy.
If your insurance company says no, then your daughter will have to get her own insurance. Because of her age, she’ll be charged more for coverage, so she should shop around and get as many quotes as she can.

"Should I remove the collision coverage from my 2006 Chevrolet Cavalier? "
I have had full coverage the whole time I have owned my Cavalier. Now that the actual cash value is under $2,000, should I remove the coverage? My deductible is $1,000.

Why did my auto insurance premium go up after I got a new Jeep Cherokee?
"I just traded in my 2009 Dodge Ram in for a 2021 Jeep Cherokee. My insurance went up by $250. My new car has a ton of safety features and I got discounts for them, so I can't figure out why the insurance is so much more expensive. My new vehicle is financed, while my old one wasn't. Would that have something to do with it?"
