Does it matter if my car loan cosigner lives in the same state as me?
I want my father to cosign for my car loan, but he lives in a different state. Does this matter?
“You shouldn’t have any problem with an out-of-state cosigner. As long as they give you approval for the loan, it shouldn’t matter.
However, some lenders may want your cosigner to sign in person. If that’s the case, you might just want to pay for your dad’s expenses if he has to show up from out of state. But hey, you get to hang out with your old man! Win-win.”

Do I need gap insurance or replacement cost coverage for my Hyundai Sonata?
I'm buying my first car and my insurance company is including new car replacement coverage. The dealership is also offering me gap insurance. Both would provide coverage for five years, which is the length of the loan. Do I need either of them? What is the difference?
