I believe it depends on the state, but as far as I know, if you have to have full coverage on a financed car, it doesn't matter where it's financed. If you still have questions, ask your insurance person, they'll know the answer.

You need to call An insurance Agent that specializes in High Risk Auto Insurance to find coverage. An Auto Dealer is the worst and most expensive place you can ever buy insurance. You should never buy your auto insurance from a car dealer or a bank teller, They are not licensed, trained or experienced in the placement of Insurance Risks.

Does car insurance cover car payments if you lose your job?

No, auto insurance does not offer this type of coverage. You generally have the option of purchasing this coverage from the auto dealer when you finance the automobile. Sometimes you may be able to purchase it if you are a member of a credit union or such. You might even call the finance company who financed the vehicle and see if it's possible to add it if that is your desire. Read the terms as these coverage are often times overpriced and have lots of small print.

How long does dealer have to keep insurance on vehicles after bought?

a dealer should have a bond. The coverage on the vehicle is like having a liability policy. If the dealer was driving the car and had an at fault accident, he will have to pay for repairs on his vehicle and the bond will cover the other persons car. Once you buy a car from a dealer, you are responsible for purchasing insurance for the vehicle, the dealer is no longer liable. In fact, the dealer should require that you have insurance before you drive the vehicle off the lot.

When purchasing a car if the owner already has full coverage on a trade in do the owner need gap insurance?

Firstly, talk with your insurance agent before signing for the new car. Dealers will sell you GAP coverage whether you need it or not and their GAP is a very expensive coverage that is paid up front and then financed so you pay even more. The only time you need GAP coverage is when the financed balance is more than the value of the car. If you are trading in another car you may have a lower balance than the book value or the new car. In any case you can purchase GAP from your agent and cancel it after a year or whenever you feel that the loan balance is lower than the value of the car. If you buy from a dealer you pay for the life of the loan plus interest.

What is the maximum charge for gap insurance through auto dealers in CT?

I'm sorry I don't know if there is a legal maximum that auto dealers can charge for gap insurance. I do know that you need to speak with your auto insurance agent prior to purchasing gap coverage. When a dealer sells you gap coverage what they do is prepay the entire premium for the term of the loan and add that into the amount financed. After that you are charged whatever interest rate you pay on the vehicle. The auto dealer is paid a large commission for selling this gap coverage and receive all their money up front. Most auto insurance companies offer the same coverage for a very small premium that is simply an endorsement to be added onto your current policy. I think mine is about $6.50 for a six month period. You only need gap coverage for the first couple of years that you own a new car. GAP pays for the difference between the value of the car and the amount owed on the loan. After a couple of years the falling amount owed on the loan becomes less than the value of the car. If you purchase from the dealer you are prepaying for the entire 5 or 6 year time of the loan period.
