Can a 1300cc car drive 2000miles non stop?
This has more to do with driver endurance and fuel capacity than anything else.
So with a driver that can stay awake and enough fuel: yes
Because a truck is heavier than your car, it takes longer to stop than you do. If you drive closely ahead of a truck you are asking for trouble. If you have to stop suddenly, there is no way they are going to be able to stop as quickly as you, even if they see you stop. A truck may also roll right over you instead of just rear-ending you, and flatten your car like…
If a used car is sold as is, I would be a little leary of the car. If they offer a 30 day warrenty on the car, I would takw it out on a test drive and stop by a mechanic (garage) and have them check it out for you to see if they find and noticeable problems. If you do that I would say they are safe.
You can stop paying car insurance when a) you no longer drive or b) you no longer own a car. You should always have car insurance if you're an active driver because you never know what could happen on the road. Insurance will handle most of your paperwork and deal with repairs, rentals, towing, etc.
The bext/cheapest way I know of is to drive your car onto a fairly steep incline and see if the transmission can hold the car in place. For example, drive up a hill, come to a stop, and let off the brake. the stall converter should have enough grab to at least stop the car from rolling backwards. If you roll down the hill backwards as if it was in neutral your converter is bad.
