Will my full-coverage insurance cover paint damage to my Ford Bronco after a cleaning?
I washed my Bronco a few days ago and something damaged the paint—I don't know if I used the wrong cleaner or if my scratch pad is to blame. I have full-coverage insurance with Progressive. Will it cover this damage if I file a claim?

“Unfortunately, no, your full-coverage insurance won’t cover the paint damage to your Bronco.
Full-coverage insurance includes collision coverage and comprehensive coverage. Collision coverage kicks in to repair damage after you hit another car or object, while comprehensive coverage covers damage from things like fire, wind, hail, theft, and vandalism.
Neither of these coverage types covers the kind of damage you’ve described. You’ll have to pay out of pocket to fix the paint.”

Should I lower my car insurance coverage on my financed Scion if I only drive about 50 miles a week?
Right now, I drive about 50 miles a week, including work, errands, and social events. I still owe a few thousand on my Scion, so I need full coverage. However, I was thinking of lowering my limits to cut my $200-a-month insurance bill down.

If my new car is safer to drive, why is the cost of my insurance more expensive?
My new car has a bunch of safety features. It parks itself, there are countless airbags, etc., etc. I thought my insurance rate would go down when I added the car to my policy, but this car costs more to insure than my old, less safe car. Why is that?
