Will my car insurance company pay the balance after I pay the deductible?
I have full-coverage insurance and a rock shattered my car window. Should my insurance company pay for the balance of the repairs once I pay for the deductible?

Yes, your car insurance company will pay for the remainder of the cost to fix your window, assuming that the damage is worth more than your deductible.
If the damage isn’t worth much more than your deductible, then you may want to consider paying for repairs out-of-pocket. This is because a claim will stay on your record for several years and cause your rates to rise.

Does gap insurance still apply if I don't have full coverage on my financed vehicle?
I got into an at-fault accident and didn't have full coverage on my financed vehicle. The dealership says I won't be able to use my gap coverage because I didn't have the right amount of insurance. If I still owe more money on my loan after the claim is paid out, would my gap insurance apply?
