What does "pending approval" mean on a car loan?
I applied for a car loan a few days ago. The lender said it would only take a few days to approve. Now when I check the status, it says "pending approval." What does this mean?

“All that “”pending approval”” means on a car loan is that it has yet to be approved. This could be for several reasons.
They could need more information from you (typically they’ll call you), or the lender could just have a massive backlog of applications. You shouldn’t worry about it.”

"Can you help me work out if the numbers for car repairs make sense under my insurance policy? "
"I was in a fender bender, and the insurance company said that I have a $500 deductible that I need to pay directly to the shop when the repairs are done. They wrote a check to my mom already for $2,100, but the repair shop said the repairs will cost $1,900 total. This doesn’t add up. Is this right? "

Will I have to pay for damages in an accident as a Grubhub driver?
I was recently involved in an at-fault accident while driving for Grubhub. I have liability insurance, but when I called my insurer, they said they wouldn't cover the accident because it happened while I was making a delivery. Do I have to pay for the damage to my car and the other person's bills?
