What do I need to consider when shopping for car insurance?
I have full coverage now but my insurance cost seems high. Other than cost, what else should I consider when switching companies?
“That really depends on what things are important to you.
- Are you looking for a company that is easy to do business with?
- Are you looking for a company with a good reputation for handling claims quickly and fairly?
- Do you have a unique situation that would require specialized insurance?
Insurance is very regulated, so your experience isn’t going to be that different from company to company, except for who you interact with and how you interact with them. For this type of information, check online customer reviews and look up the customer satisfaction ratings with J.D. Power.”

What does auto replacement protection cover?
I'm buying a new car and looking at auto insurance quotes. I've seen this coverage with various carriers and I'm wondering what it does. Would this cover your loan so you can start fresh if your car is deemed a total loss? Or does it replace your vehicle?

Why is my sister paying less for her car insurance than me?
"My sister and I have the same car insurance company and we both need full coverage on our vehicle. She's a few years younger than me and has a clean driving record. I was in a not-at-fault accident two years ago. We also have the same lender for our car loans. Why is she paying less than me?"

I live in Nevada and my car insurance lapsed for just six days. My insurer notified the DMV of the lapse. Does this mean the DMV will cancel my car registration and charge a reinstatement fee?
