Should I opt for comprehensive coverage on my 2012 Toyota 4Runner?
I have liability insurance on my 4Runner. I'm thinking of adding collision, but I'm unsure about comprehensive. Do I really need it?
“Collision coverage and comprehensive coverage typically go hand in hand. But just because you have one doesn’t mean you need the other.
Collision is nice to have because your car gets fixed regardless of who’s at fault. Comprehensive can also be nice too, especially if your car is of higher value and you live in a place with extreme weather.
You might just try getting a high deductible on your comprehensive (if you can afford it) to keep your rate on the lower side. That way, you’re covered for perils like natural disasters, fire, vandalism, theft, and fallen objects, even if you have to shell out a bit more money before the insurance company pays up.”

"Is it a good idea to finance my first car at age 18? "
"I just turned 18 and have been driving a beater for two years. It broke down for the fourth time and I am tired of fixing it. Should I finance a better car? If it matters, I make about $200 per week, I can put $2,000 down, and I have a minimal credit history. "

Will I have any issues with the policy if I need to tow my unregistered car?
"Is it possible for me to get a ticket while an unregistered car is being towed? I bought an old beater to practice car repairs; hopefully I can fix it up. It needs to be moved from the owner's house to mine, but I need to call a tow truck since it isn't running. I know an unregistered car shouldn't be on the road."
