Do I need to purchase car insurance if I have a warranty?

What happens if I don't purchase car insurance? I have one year left on my warranty.

“While it’s helpful to have a warranty, you definitely still need to purchase car insurance.
A warranty is often optional and a guarantee that if something breaks on your vehicle, the manufacturer will replace or repair it.
Car insurance protects you, your vehicle, and other drivers from damages. It’s also legally required in most states. To legally operate a vehicle, you’ll need the state minimum car insurance. Without it, you face serious consequences, like fines, license suspensions, or jail time.
