Should I give a potential buyer of my Tesla Model X a copy of the title for their loan-approval process?
"I'm selling my Tesla Model X. The buyer wants to make sure he can get approved, but he says he needs the title to do so.
Should I give a potential buyer a copy of the title?"
“No, you shouldn’t give them a copy of the title, as this isn’t a requirement for the loan. No lender will ask for the title on a car for approval or pre-approval.
Instead, give them the Model X’s VIN. This should be all they need to get approval for a car loan as well as secure car insurance.”

What do I do if I hit a parked car with a borrowed vehicle that has liability-only insurance?
I borrowed my sister's vehicle and hit a parked car. I was visiting and borrowing the car, so I'm not listed on the policy. She has liability-only insurance through our parents' policy. She wants to file a claim, but I'm willing to pay out of pocket for the damage.
