Should I keep auto insurance on my car if it's just sitting in a parking garage?
I work from home now due to the pandemic. I have a car, but I never drive it. I was going to give it to my sister, so I'm not sure if I still need insurance on it. Should I keep the policy on it until my sister gets it, at least?

“The answer depends on whether you’ll be getting another car in the future. If you cancel your insurance, you’ll have a lapse in coverage, which can result in higher premiums when you buy car insurance later on.
If you do plan to get another car, but you won’t be driving your current car again, you can opt for a storage plan, which is essentially an auto policy with comprehensive coverage only. This will protect your car from perils like fire, theft, and vandalism, and it may be cheaper than having a standard liability policy.

Why is my insurance so expensive for a 2020 Kia Forte?
I'm 19 and live in New York. I have one accident on my record. When I shop around for car insurance, my quotes have been $600 a month. I'm currently paying less than that with liability only. Why is it so expensive?

Why wasn't I able to add gap insurance to my Jeep Wrangler?
When I purchased my Wrangler a year ago, my dealership said they couldn't add gap insurance because I'm in the military. My friend just bought their car and the dealership allowed them to add gap insurance, even though they're in the military as well. Was I lied to?
