Why isn't car insurance accident forgiveness legal in California?
I can't purchase accident forgiveness through my policy in California. Why?
“California’s Proposition 103 (enacted in 1988) made it illegal for companies to charge excessive rates for car insurance.
Accident forgiveness—which is an additional coverage option that keeps your rates from increasing after your first accident in which you are at fault—falls under this proposition because you may pay an excessive rate for this benefit. “

Should I get a car loan or buy a cheap used car?
I feel trapped because I have no car to get to a job and no job to secure a car loan. I have about $4,000 to put down on a car, and my credit score is around 625. Would I qualify for a car loan, or would I be better off buying a cheap used car with that $4,000?
