Can I get a car loan for a Toyota 4Runner with a 750 credit score and $5,500 down?
"I want to purchase a Toyota 4Runner for $12,000. I have $5,500 for a down payment and a credit score of 750. I currently make about $42,000 a year.
Will I get approved for a car loan?"
“With a good credit score, steady income, and a 45% down payment, you’re a shoe-in for a car loan.
But don’t forget that you’ll also have other costs, not just the car note. Car insurance with full coverage is mandatory on loans, so you might be looking at a few hundred a month extra for a premium.
If you can afford the car without stretching yourself financially, you shouldn’t have any problems getting the loan.”

Can you be protected by an auto insurance policy if you aren't listed on it?
My boyfriend got into a not-at-fault accident and his car is destroyed. The other driver's insurance policy will pay $15,000. This is less than what he owes on his loan and his insurance company won't allow him to submit a claim. They say it's because he isn't listed as a driver on the policy. Is this allowed?

Can you tell me how much liability insurance is too much?
I got a quote for $75 less per month and double the liability coverage (from 50/100/25 to 100/300/50). Is this too much coverage? Should I keep my old limits to make the policy even cheaper or get the higher coverage since I am already saving money?
