“The first thing you should do is to see if your car qualifies for the lemon law.
This law states that dealers must sell cars that are in working order. If they keep breaking down, the dealer must fix or replace the vehicle.
If the vehicle doesn’t qualify, you’re at the mercy of the dealer.
Call them to see what they’re willing to do. While there are some shady dealers, most will work with you with the intention of keeping their reputation untarnished at the very least.”

How much should I pay for liability insurance in an affluent neighborhood in Los Angeles?
I'm 21 and I have had one minor accident. I pay around $1,600 in liability insurance for a six-month policy. Should I shop around for a better rate, even if I live in a wealthy neighborhood in the Los Angeles suburbs?
