What is the minimum amount of insurance required for financed vehicles in New Mexico?
Is there a specific requirement for car insurance with financed vehicles? Can I just have state-minimum coverage?
“While every state has its own requirements for minimum car insurance coverage, most lenders require that financed vehicles carry both comprehensive insurance and collision car insurance.
In some cases, lenders also require that insureds carry a specific deductible. Lenders want to make sure that their property is protected and the vehicle will be repaired, so many have a maximum deductible of $500.
However, every lender is different. There may be some that require you to carry more than the state minimums in New Mexico. You’ll want to reach out to your lender to confirm what they specifically require in terms of insurance.

"Why am I not able to refinance my car at a lower rate after improving my credit score? "
"I got a car loan a year ago at seven percent with a 700 credit score. Now my score has gone up. I applied for a refinance loan and was approved for the same exact interest rate as before. While it doesn’t make financial sense to make a lateral move like that, I would like to understand the lender's logic here. "
