    So I’m under my dad’s insurance. We live in miami, florida. My dad had a crash (his fault) and I’ve had two (one my fault). Cars currently under insurance are his 1998 toyota sierra, and my new 2013 corrolla (Took this one out right after crash) His old 2015 camry and my old 2009 camry used to be on it till the crashes. Now his crash was two years ago. My first one was last august. But we only had to pay a total of $350 a month. I paid half. Now I got crashed behind me two weeks ago by some guy who was on his phone. Car total loss. We’ve had trouble claiming from him since he had canceled his insurance two weeks prior to crash and he lives in a different state (North Carolina). Idk how the state trooper who ran his stuff didnt see that but whatever. But besides that, the insurance went up $416 for my car alone. That means the insurance will cost $766 a month now. I honestly understand how thats possible. He now wants to take me off the insurance and have me fend for it myself. So how and why did they raise it so much? Is there a way to get it lowered?

  • Subaru Forester, Subaru Outback, or Toyota Tacoma?

    Best answer: I own a forester & a Tacoma and they are both excellent. I couldn't say anything bad about either of them. I would probably take the Tacoma only because you can use it for hauling & picking up things easier.

  • Would you consider this $1200 worth of damage?

    I had an accident the other day and I was told it would cost $1200 to fix. The plastic came off the left blinker but it still works, the left headlight is dented in but not broken, the grill is also dented inwards but it’s nothing that can’t be fixed with duct tape, and finally the hood of the car is slightly... show more
    I had an accident the other day and I was told it would cost $1200 to fix. The plastic came off the left blinker but it still works, the left headlight is dented in but not broken, the grill is also dented inwards but it’s nothing that can’t be fixed with duct tape, and finally the hood of the car is slightly raised but it can be opened. I know there’s no picture but I don’t see how that’s $1200 worth of damage on a 200-something Toyota Camry. There’s nothing wrong mechanically, it’s all cosmetic damage.

    I rear-ended someone in a car accident yesterday. When I pulled up to the intersection light to prepare to make a left turn, there were 3 other cars in front of me when the light turned green. Once the light turned green, the first two cars completed their turn, and the 3rd car that was in front of me began to move, but then stopped abruptly causing me to rear end them. This person lied to the police and claimed that I was at fault, but I don't see how. I thought she was about to make the turn so I then began to move my car, but she suddenly stopped causing me to rear end her. Am I at fault or is she?

Are there any specific reasons as to why jeeps are better?

  • What are the chances that I hydrolocked my engine?

    I warmed up my engine, revved it up, and in attempt to clean it, sprayed (very slowly & carefully) small droplets of water into the intake. The car would absorb the water, rev down for a few seconds, then rev back up to compensate, before smoothing out. At one point, about 30 minutes into doing this process, I ended up spraying just a tad (a few droplets) too much water into the intake, so that the car actually stalled out. I let it sit for only about 3-4 seconds before attempting to crank it again to start it. The car immediately cranked just fine, fired right up, and but a couple minutes later started violently revving up and down, up and down, from 800 to 1500 RPMs and back down again at idle. When driving, the car runs perfectly fine and acceleration is normal. But at idle, the car is all over the place. There is also no water in the engine oil or tranny fluid, and I plan on doing a compression check later on. But what are the chances that I hydrolocked my engine and caused connecting rod / bearing / piston damage?

    2000 Buick Park Avenue 3800 series 2 with 130k. Dripping coolant from the where the upper radiator hose clamps to the radiator. Hose is new. Clamp is the screw type and is new and not stripped. I drained the radiator, pulled the hose and closely checked the plastic nipple on the radiator and it's clean with no corrosion or cuts in the plastic. I know the clamp was on there tight because there's a perfect impression of it on the hose. Anything else I should try before spending the money and going thru the hassle of changing the radiator without knowing it'll take care of the leak? Thx.
