Is there a difference between having car insurance and a warranty?

Do I need to purchase car insurance? When I leased my vehicle, they said I had a two-year warranty.

“Both car insurance and warranties are a great way to protect your leased car. Although an auto warranty covers certain repairs and defects, it doesn’t cover damage to the vehicle, other vehicles, or other drivers.
In most cases, a warranty is optional or is included with a lease or new car, while car insurance is not.
Driving without the state minimum car insurance requirements could result in serious consequences, like fines or license suspensions.
If you don’t have a car insurance policy already, shop around. You’ll want to ensure you have the proper protection for your new car, even if it has a warranty.
