Do I still have to pay if I have a car loan and the engine gives out?
I was driving my vehicle that I financed when all of the sudden, the engine just blew up. Do I still have to pay for the car loan?
“If your engine blows up on a financed car, you’re still on the hook for the payment. Unfortunately, your car insurance won’t pay for the damages either, as even full-coverage policies won’t cover this.
In the future, you may want to consider getting an extended warranty that will cover a blown engine, especially if you don’t have the money to pay for the repairs out of pocket.”

Do I need medical payments or higher limits for uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage if I have good health insurance?
I have good health insurance and am planning on getting a motorcycle. Should I add medical payments coverage and higher limits for underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage? I have it on my car insurance, but it's way less expensive than what it'll be on my motorcycle policy.

What happens if my car is in an accident during a test drive in NY?
I am selling my car and let someone take it for a test drive. Long story short, the lady totaled my car and two other vehicles and knocked over a telephone pole. Who is going to pay for all of this? I only have minimum liability coverage on the car.
