• Should I keep my total loss car ?

    Ok so I bought a 2018 Nissan Altima & i got into an accident 25 days after buying the car. I went into a pothole on the road and the only thing I damaged was the bumper and the grill and all the plastic from the bottom of the car.

    Ok so I bought a 2018 Nissan Altima & i got into an accident 25 days after buying the car. I went into a pothole on the road and the only thing I damaged was the bumper and the grill and all the plastic from the bottom of the car. I did the claim for my insurance and they declared it total loss. Seems weird because if you look at my car you might think nothing happened to it. My car is still drive able . After the accident I did notice the check engine light turned on. But it still drives like new . Now people are telling me to keep my salvage car if it still drives that it’s still new. & yes I have GAP .But here is where im wondering...... if i keep the car I will get less money & it will all go to the loan holder,......... but will GAP pay the rest even if I keep the car ??? Should I just let them keep the car and have GAp Pay the rest and move on ?? This has me thinking because the car IS drivable and I know it’s not a total loss it’s brand new. I don’t have a car right now & I really need one Im debating wether I should keep it and drive it or just let it go and go get me another car?? If I keep the car I won’t owe any money for it & still use it for work school etc But if I let it go I will have to go get another car and owe money on the new one ... if that makes sense???

  • Is $30 per day for rental car a fair deal?

    My vehicle was hit by a careless driver and will be out of commission for a week for repairs so I'll need a rental car. Other driver's insurance company says they will cover rental car but only $30 per day including tax. This seems low. So is $30 per day fair or too low?

  • Should do an oil & filter change for a new engine after first hour of use? or after how long? why?

    Best answer: If a engine hasn’t been broken in then yes, I would Change it pretty quickly. You can get metal flakes in the oil of a brand new motor.

  • Why do American steam locomotives have warning bells and built-in headlights but British ones don t?

    Best answer: British locos did not have bells as they relied upon the whistle and the ordinary operating noise to give warning of their approach. British tracks are enclosed and there was very little street running. US locos only started using electric headlights after electric lighting became practical. In Britain, by that... show more

    US locos only started using electric headlights after electric lighting became practical. In Britain, by that time they were accustomed to operating without them and so did not introduce them (again, the enclosed tracks were probably a factor, there was less need for headlights).

  • What car should I get? Toyota vs subaru?

    I am debating on getting a Subaru legacy, Toyota Highlander, rav4, or 4runner. I am leaning towards either a rav4 or legacy since it is most cost effective. Or whatever is in better condition. I want to keep it in the 3-6k range since I need to save up money for moving to Colorado.

  • Is my transmission done for.?

    Best answer: If you immediately turned the car off when the ATF blew out of the cooler line you might get lucky but it only takes a few blocks of driving with no ATF in the tranny to ruin it because once it slips it's toast and needs to be rebuilt.

  • My parents won’t teach me to drive because I’m “irresponsible” and “disrespectful” and I’m 19 years old.?

    Best answer: WTF are you doing living at home yet with your parents telling you what to do?!
    Get a couple of buddies to rent a house with you and buy your own car. Take a driving class and get your license.
    Get laid too!

  • Do i need both pieces of my car key to get a replacement from the dealership if it's broken in half?

    Best answer: You need your title and the vehicle at the dealer. The parts department has a factory key cutter that can make replacement keys using the VIN. You need the tittle to prove you own the vehicle and the car at the dealer so they can program the 2 new keys to the immobilizer.

  • During the summer, when taking a drivers test, do you I need to slow down in a school zone?

    In the route I am taking for my driver s test, there is a school zone sign that reduces the speed from 45 mph to 25 mph. Since it is summer, when I drive by do I need to reduce my speed even if no children are present? Thank you! :)
