How can I convince my mom to let me get a Mustang as my first car?
"I'm 15 and I get my license next year. I want to get a Mustang as my first car. The problem is my mom has seen the statistics and said they're terrible. How can I convince her otherwise? Is there any cheap kind of Mustang I can buy?"
“One thing to keep in mind, along with the cost of the car and your mom’s concerns, is the cost of car insurance. When you license a vehicle, you’ll also need to purchase insurance, and unfortunately, because of the statistics your mom mentioned, insuring a sports car as a teen driver can be very expensive.
You may want to look into more affordable options for your first car so you can build up a safe driving history and your mother’s confidence. But if you’re committed to a Mustang, you can compare car insurance quotes by using a comparison tool, like Jerry.”

Does the fact my insurance company is investigating my claim mean they're going to deny it?
"I let my insurance lapse by 5 days and got into an accident 3 days after I reinstated it. I called to file a claim and they asked if I had filed a police report. I didn't because I was the only vehicle involved after hydroplaning and hitting a median. Now they're investigating the claim. Will it be denied?"
