If a car is being sold way to cheap I am always suspicious.

I always ask for photo ID when buying a car to insure the car and the title and the owner all match.

If a car is stolen and you have insurance but the vehicle is in someone elses name will it be covered?

Theft is not the same as accidents.

Presumably you were not in the car when it was stolen, right? What involvement do you have?
