Do I still need full coverage on a Subaru Impreza that's paid off and valued at $5,500?
I just paid off my Subaru Impreza. It's now nine years old and worth $5,500. Do I still need full coverage, or can I switch to liability?

“The choice is entirely up to you, but it should be based primarily on your finances.
If you totaled your Subaru in an at-fault accident, could you afford to get a new car? If the answer is no, you might want to stick with full coverage.
If you can afford to get a new car, sticking with just liability coverage should save you some cash that you can put away for a new vehicle in the future.
Whatever you decide, do yourself a favor and go to Jerry to compare quotes and find the best rate.”

Is $70 a good price for full coverage on a Ford Mustang?
I was looking to lower the full-coverage rate on my sports car, which is currently at $225 a month. When I researched some quotes, I found full coverage for $70 from Progressive. It sounds too good to be true. Am I missing something?
