"Can I trade in a Nissan Altima that I am still financing? "
"I bought a 2018 Nissan Altima six months ago and am really unhappy with it. I currently owe $18,000 on the car, but would like to trade it in for a better model. Is this possible, and does it make financial sense?
“It is absolutely possible to trade a car in, even if you still owe on the car. However, it doesn’t always make financial sense to do so.
The current average trade-in value for a Nissan Altima with 30,000 miles on it is between $19,000 and $22,000, so you shouldn’t run into any issues while trading in your car for another one. But depending on the value of the car you are looking to trade in your Altima for, you should be prepared to put some money down. “

How can I get coverage for 100% of my medical bills after a not-at-fault collision?
"I was in an accident and it was the other driver's fault. The police report didn't really determine fault, and their insurance company is only offering to pay 80% of my medical bills. Is there a way to get his insurance company to pay more? Do I need to sue the other driver to get him to cover the rest of my medical bills?"
