Auto Insurance Tip – Insurance follows the vehicle and may impact your coverage by Ed Setliff, State Farm Insurance Agent
Before Loaning Your Vehicle You Need To Keep In Mind:
- You are responsible for who you allow to drive your vehicle.
- Know the person that you are lending your vehicle to. Never allow an impaired driver to operate your vehicle.
- If another driver wrecks your vehicle, you are responsible for filing the claim and paying any applicable deductibles.
- If the damage exceeds policy limits, you may be held liable for the additional monetary damages.
Think before you loan your auto to another person. Make sure you pass this information on to all drivers in your household. We want to keep your family properly protected and keep your premiums as low as possible.
Did you know that in summer months, the inside temperature of a vehicle sitting in the sun can easily reach 120F or more? Keeping you and your passengers comfortable during the hottest weather is dependent on proper maintenance of your car A/C system.
With the onset of spring your car requires maintenance to ensure it is ready for increased driving and rainy weather. Often times, we get used to the feeling of things like brakes not working properly, making it even more critical to have them checked with the change of seasons. Investing in maintenance now can also ensure that your vehicle does not require more costly repairs later in the season.

I purchased a hybrid car because I wanted better fuel economy. I didn’t think about hybrids and winter driving. How do frigid temperatures affect fuel economy? Should you change your driving habits in the cold?
