I got in an at-fault accident this year and my monthly rate jumped by $80 when my policy was renewed. Can I switch to another insurer for a better price?

You can absolutely switch to another insurance company after an at-fault accident. In fact, you’re typically free to switch insurers whenever you please.
Despite having this accident on your record, it’s possible that you could find a cheaper rate for car insurance elsewhere. Start shopping by getting quotes from at least three other companies.

Can I get insurance for mechanical issues on a high-mileage Chevy Trax?
I'm eyeing a Chevy Trax with 200,000 miles that's been well maintained. My concern is that it's never had any mechanical issues, so it might be on the verge of a major breakdown. Can I get car insurance that covers engine, transmission, or other major repairs?
