Should I go down to a liability-only policy on my 10-year-old car to save money on my insurance?
I live in Florida and my car is about 10 years old. I have full coverage, but I found out that I can cut my rate in half if I drop down to a liability-only policy. I hadn't thought about making this change before, but now I am wondering if I should.

“It is always hard to decide if you should keep full coverage or not. Here are some things to think about:
- What is the actual cash value of your car?
- If your car is deemed a total loss, do you have enough money saved to make a down payment on a new one?
- Have you gotten quotes with a higher deductible than you are currently carrying? Did you find significant savings by doing this?
One option is to remove the collision coverage and keep the comprehensive coverage. This way, the car will have some physical protection from things like fire, theft, vandalism, and glass breakage.
Weigh your options carefully and speak with your insurance agent for more guidance. “

Could my gap insurance claim be rejected, and if so, why?
I have loan/lease coverage and gap insurance on my car. My insurance company is denying my loan/lease coverage claim. I'm worried that my gap insurance claim with another company will also be denied. Is there a reason why it could be? I still owe $2,000 on my loan.

"What should I do after being denied an auto loan with a cosigner? "
"I applied for a car loan with my bank. I have a 680 credit score with minimal history, so I added my girlfriend as a cosigner. She has a 750 credit score and five years' worth of credit history. The bank still denied me a loan. Where should I go from here? "
