I'm 28 years old and have a new Kia Optima. I am currently with State Farm and was able to find a lower price with Nationwide. I'm just not sure what coverage levels to select.

“Almost every state has a minimum amount of car insurance that is required by law, including Maine. You should first find out what coverages you are required to have. Once you know that, you can decide how much you’d like to spend on car insurance.
If your vehicle is financed, lenders normally require you to carry full coverage, which includes comprehensive coverage and collision coverage. This is usually more expensive than only having liability insurance.
Having the proper amount of coverage is important, so try to buy the highest amount of coverage that you can afford. While you know which carrier you’d like to switch to, it can be beneficial to explore other options to ensure you’re receiving the best rate. “

"Is 20% APR on a car loan okay? "
My local dealership offered me $10,000 of financing on a $12,000 car at 20%. I have the money to cover the other $2,000 and can afford the monthly $300 payments. But 20% seems a bit high to me, considering that my credit is good. Should I go ahead with the deal?
