“Before buying a car, you should do your research. A car, even if it’s a more affordable model, is a big investment. Therefore, you should have a down payment saved up and a budget planned, and you should always shop around for financing before looking for the right car.
Also, don’t be scared to try to negotiate with the salesperson, don’t buy the first car that catches your eye, and be open to buying a used car. “

Why is my uninsured motorist coverage so high in Maine?
My car is only worth $6,000 and I have a $50,000/$100,000 limit for uninsured motorist bodily injury. I also have a $50,000 limit for uninsured motorist property damage. I have full coverage on my vehicle and don't really understand why I have to have such high limits.
