What should you do if your car gets stuck in a ditch and you don't have roadside assistance?
"I was wondering what to do if my car got stuck in a ditch and I didn't have roadside assistance.
What would I do?"
“Before you call a tow company and pay the full rate, you should first check with your car insurance. Some car insurance companies have roadside assistance on their policy that you may not know about.
If they don’t have it, the next step is to check with your credit cards. Many credit cards, including any card with the Visa logo, will offer some form of roadside assistance, so it’s worth it to check.
To avoid a potentially sticky situation, you may just want to add a towing and labor coverage option to your existing policy.”

"Do you think I can comfortably afford to finance a $40,000 Charger? "
"I have been making over $80,000 annually for over a year now. I’ve almost eliminated my student loan debt and my monthly expenses are less than $1,000 per month. I really have my heart set on a new Dodge Charger. The MSRP is about $40,000. Can I get a loan, and if so, how much should I expect to put down? "

What can I do if another driver totaled my car but only has $5,000 in property damage liability?
My car was parked in my driveway when a motorist left the road and hit it. The car is totaled. However, the driver's insurance company will only provide $5,000 for property damage. That's not nearly enough to cover my damages. What are my options?
