“That is a good question. FTCAC is actually a type of comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive is what insurers refer to as an “”open-peril coverage,”” meaning that it covers anything that is not specifically excluded under the policy except for collisions.
FTCAC, or fire and theft with combined additional coverage, is referred to as a “”named-peril coverage.”” It only covers claims resulting from those perils (causes) that are specifically listed on the policy. Some carriers refer to FTCAC as “”limited comprehensive”” due to this limitation. “

"My annual salary is about $80,000, and I have a $20,000 car loan with a 6.74% interest rate. Refinancing this loan will cut my rate down to 3.99%. I plan to pay off the loan within eight months. Is refinancing my Nissan 370Z worth it?"

Can you help me figure out North Carolina's confusing driver's license rules?
I haven't had a license for a while and just moved to NC. I want to get a license and buy a new car. Since I don't have current insurance, they say I have a "fleet restriction" until I get my policy. What does that mean? Can I test-drive cars at the dealership?
