"What are my options for getting a car loan if I have been denied multiple times based on my credit history? "
"I was really bad with money when I was in college and now I have a poor credit score. My car is on its last legs and I need to finance a new one.
I have about $10,000 saved. What are some other loan options that might possibly work?

“You could try to apply for less money and submit a bigger down payment. Sometimes that works when you have bad credit. However, your interest rate will likely be really high.
$10,000 can buy you a really nice car, and you can usually find some pretty reliable cars for around $5,000.
Instead of getting a loan, have you considered paying cash to buy a cheaper car outright? If you do this, you can save a significant amount of money since you won’t be charged interest.

Is a 50/100/50 liability insurance policy too much coverage?
I'm a 26-year-old man and I'm buying my first car. I was looking at policies, and I thought I should get more than just minimum liability coverage. But is 50/100/50 liability insurance too much coverage if I just go to work and come home?

Where should I start when trying to find car insurance?
I just found out my dad doesn't have insurance on his car or my brother's financed car. I've never purchased insurance before, so I'm not sure where to start. I looked online and a lot of carriers want my dad's personal info. I wasn't sure if it was safe and I want to find the cheapest way to get the cars insured.

What type of insurance coverage should I get for a new car in Ohio?
