• Why is my husband so quick to drop my son off our insurance policy?

    A few nights ago my 21 year old son went and bought his first car off a guy for $900. We told him that he needed to get his own insurance policy so he can get it registered. Last night I helped my son find an agency and we got his car insured and this week he's going to the DMV to get it registered and put a tag on it. Today my husband sent me an email to ask if he got his car insured and when I told him yes he said he was going to call our car insurance company and drop him off our policy. My question to him was "dang, why are you so quick to drop him? Him being on our policy isn't affecting our insurance one way or another." My husband feels that our rates could possibly drop now that we have a child off of it. I don't think so. Am I wrong or is he just trying to get him off our policy ASAP? He feels that since he has his own policy now he doesn't need to be on ours and I'm like, what's the rush in dropping him? Am I wrong?

  • How long should a car last after extended warranty expires. My friend had a chevy equinox with 134000 miles on it.?

    Best answer: First, I want to debunk a few of these answers for the simple cause that they are ignorant, and believe what they hear instead of doing their own personal research - I sell cars, people who think that we are still making large margin profits on cars, which is one of, now, one of the most transparent industries.... show more
    Best answer: First, I want to debunk a few of these answers for the simple cause that they are ignorant, and believe what they hear instead of doing their own personal research - I sell cars, people who think that we are still making large margin profits on cars, which is one of, now, one of the most transparent industries. With the information that people have with the internet, it's near impossible to make gross on cars.
    Second, the cars they are designing now are meant to last about 10-18 years. They are more reliable on gas, and the 2017 Equinox comes with a 3 year 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty which only fixes things that break by themselves. I got an extended bumper to bumper because it also covers things that may break at my fault. It's not as bad as people make it out to be. Of course the dealership makes a little bit of money, but half of the people answering this are on their $700 iPhones that your provider makes tons of money on. Don't hate a business for making a profit. That is what they are in business to do. (Duh) After the warranty expires, then its a matter of how the car is driven, what climate and conditions the vehicle runs through, and how frequently you maintain it with the proper recommended oil, fluids, etc.
    So, if well maintained, and properly cared for, with occasional fixes both minor and major, you could be looking at a life span of about 20 yrs or more! It's really more about how it is driven.
    Hope this helps!! Best of Luck to your friend with their new Equinox!

    P.S. - To put things in perspective, I sold a $80,000 Corvette, brand new, and made $200. So, people who are putting this garbage up about "New Cars are where the money is at" obviously have no clue what they are talking about. Used cars is where you can make MAYBE $400 if the car sold is $50,000 or more..

  • What tools do I need to drop a transmission and replace a clutch?

    Best answer: A very easy job to do as long as it's a RWD with no transfer case to remove. Two guys should be able to do it without a TX jack. You will need a pilot bushing alignment tool. The pilot bushing can be removed with grease and proper sized wooden dowel or even the pilot alignment tool. Look up the videos for... show more
    Best answer: A very easy job to do as long as it's a RWD with no transfer case to remove. Two guys should be able to do it without a TX jack. You will need a pilot bushing alignment tool. The pilot bushing can be removed with grease and proper sized wooden dowel or even the pilot alignment tool. Look up the videos for Toyota T100 transmission removal and the grease method of pilot bushing removal and installation with a large deep well socket. Two guys can do this job in under 4 hours drinking beer in the garage, you only need enough lift room to work under the truck comfortably. The aluminum transmission isn't that heavy that you need a TX jack unless you have 4WD and the transfer case to also remove.

  • If I told the insurance that the mom was driving instead of the daughter after a month of no reply can I take the daughter to court instead?

    Some girl backed up into me at a Texas parking lot. I have insurance and this girl was driving her boyfriends car with her mother, the car was also insured. She had no license and we said that the mom was driving the car. In total the damage cost me a little over 1,500 dollars but it's been 33 days and her insurance refuses to accept liability because she claimed that I was moving, but I had stopped and honked when I say her backing up. Her insurance company claims that there is a video and they are "waiting to review it" but they told me that two weeks ago. Is it possible to take her to court for the damage and say that it was the girl driving and not the mom? There was no police report made.

  • Why do you have to be 25+ to drive a rental car when you can get your driver's license at 16?

    Best answer: It is risk related. Rental companies have learned they don't want to take the risk of renting to younger people. They are too hard on stuff. It is kinda like not hiring an 18 year old to drive an 18 wheeler because nobody will insure them. One of many reasons you have to be 21 to drive an 18 wheeler across... show more

    I was involved in a car accident in California, and I am now suffering from back and neck pains which impedes me from performing my job's full duties (package delivering). I filed a compensation demand and my lawyer wants to divide the settlement in 3, where each of the parties involved (myself, lawyer, and chiropractor) would get 1/3 of the settlement amount. I have been seeing a chiropractor, but I haven't been paying him for his services, because 1/3 of the settlement will be going to the chiropractor. Is this in line with the law? I want to know if I am getting my rightful/legal share of the settlement.

    I have driven a car, rode dirt bikes, operated a lawnmower, and have even bought myself a wheel for video games(So basically I love driving). I was wondering if there is anything I can legally drive on the road at my age. My school is kind of far away from my house, so I've been trying to find answers for this question for a long time. Almost everything is illegal, I looked into tractors, but you have to be 16 for that. I very excited to start driving in 3/2 years, but I just want something else I can drive to school/other destinations.

    I want to change my auto insurance company. To calculate new new insurance quote, I have to list all my past accidents with dates, which I did not keep record for. Few questions in this regard: what if wrongly specify month of an accident occurred? What could it entail? If I filed a claim to violator s insurance company as it was not my fault, should I still specify this? If I filed claim to my insurance company but then revoked it, should I mention this? Thanks
