How has the Internet changed the car-buying experience, for better or for worse?
I’d appreciate any insights you have to offer as someone who’s looking to buy a car online for the first time.
“Buying cars online is still a relatively new idea, but it’s catching on with consumers. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise in a world marked by COVID-19. But basing an expensive purchase on pictures and data is an interesting concept. Only time will tell if it holds steady, but the prospects look strong now.
The Internet has opened up some benefits for the average car buyer. This includes a national marketplace that allows people to shop for cars that are on the other side of the country. Furthermore, the Internet is rife with great information that allows people to compare insurance rates, financing rates, and car prices with just a click of a button.
In that regard, the car-buying experience has never before been tilted so greatly to the buyer’s advantage. But that’s only if they put in the time to use the knowledge that the Internet provides. “

Why is car insurance required?
"Why don't you get a refund if you don't get into an accident at the end of your policy term? It doesn't seem fair to have to pay for insurance and still possibly lose your car in an accident. Shouldn't new car replacement coverage be standard in an auto policy?"

Will my policy be affected if I don’t make them aware of speeding tickets? I just switched insurance carriers but have not informed them of the two speeding tickets I just recieved.

Should I insure my car in Florida if I just moved there, even if I'm going to get rid of the vehicle in the near future?
I recently moved from New York to Florida. My father makes all the payments on my vehicle, and I'm listed as a driver on his NY insurance. I'm keeping the car until I find a job, then I'll sell it or give it back to my father. Do I need to insure the car in Florida?
