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.”

Will the number of cars on the policy affect how much we'll pay for insurance?
I'm 17 and I want to be added to my parents' car insurance policy. I also want to eventually add my own car to the policy, which means we'll be insuring three cars in total. Will the number of cars on the policy affect how much we'll pay for insurance?

Can apartment management require you to list them as a certificate holder or interested party?
"As a condition of my lease, the management of my new apartment wants me to list them as a certificate holder or interested party on my renters insurance. Can they legally make this demand? I'd prefer not to list them on my policy if I don't have to. "
