• How hard is it to match paint on a car?

    I was recently involved in a fender-bender with my brand new car. I went to the body shop the dealer recommended (because they do not have a body shop) and I needed a new front bumper. They had to keep my car an extra day because they were having a difficult time matching the paint. When I went to pick it up the front bumper color was close, but you can easily tell in sunlight that it does not match the rest of my car. The bumper is lighter in color and the metallic is different. The body shop told me that they could not get it to match any better because the bumper is plastic and the car is metal (but the back bumper matches?). So am I being unrealistic to expect my repair to be able to match my car?

  • Why do school zones exist?

    It's pretty stupid. Why do I have to slow down to a snails pace around a school? If kid is too stupid to know shouldn't be jaywalking then they deserve to get hit! I also hate the cops that pull you over if you go 27 in a 25.

  • When I lease a car, is mile overage forgiven if I lease another car?

    I was looking into lease a car. The dealership said if I lease a car and I go over the miles at the end, if I lease another car then the miles are forgiven. Is this true?

  • Does every driver in a family need to be insured?

    Best answer: In your case, oh hell yes. When you signed up for a policy with your insurance company, you agreed to let them know about any and all licensed drivers living in the house at all times. Even after the policy was issued and renewed a few times, you're still required to keep your end of the deal. If you look... show more
    Best answer: In your case, oh hell yes. When you signed up for a policy with your insurance company, you agreed to let them know about any and all licensed drivers living in the house at all times. Even after the policy was issued and renewed a few times, you're still required to keep your end of the deal. If you look into the contract and wade through all that legal technical mumbo-jumbo, you'll find the clause that says you agree to that condition.

    If you don't tell them, if you 'forget' to tell the insurance company about a licensed driver in the house, there's another clause in the contract about that. It says that any misrepresentation (lying) or non-disclosure (lying by omission) on your part means the whole deal is off, and all their obligations are null and void. Everyone knows that lying on a legal contract is a total deal-breaker, and insurance companies reinforce it by putting it in writing.

    And they're serious about those conditions. Remember all those insurance horror stories you've heard? The ones where someone bought insurance, made all the payments on time, and then an accident happened and the insurance company used some fine-print technicality to weasel out of paying for it? Those stories are true, and 95% of the time the legal technicality was misrepresentation / non-disclosure.

    Never, never ever, give your insurance company a legally valid reason to refuse to cover you. If you give them a reason, they can and will use it.

  • If a car needs an alignment and new tires, which one do you get first?

    Best answer: It doesn't matter as long as you don't drive very far with the new tires and cause wear patterns to form on them before getting an alignment. You can align a car with the old tires just as well as with the new tires.
