What car insurance should I get for a Nissan Altima as a 20-year-old?
I'm 20 years old, and I bought a Nissan Altima with cash. I've been quoted around $100 a month for minimum liability. Where can I find a better rate?

“Since you’re under 25, your car insurance will be on the expensive side no matter what. But don’t get the state-minimum insurance, as it won’t cover all that much.
Instead, get something like a 100/300/100 liability coverage policy for your Nissan Altima. This will cover:
- $100,000 for bodily injury liability per person
- $300,000 for bodily injury liability per accident
- $100,000 for property damage liability per accident
By taking out this policy, you can ensure you aren’t sued or on the hook for damage or medical bills because you’re underinsured.

Can I cancel my car’s extended warranty if their tow truck never shows up?
If a tow truck doesn't show, is this grounds for me to cancel the warranty? I needed a tow because my car broke down, so I called the warranty company for the extended warranty. They said they would send a tow truck, but it never came so I had to use my other roadside service plan instead.
