April 7, 2011 by · 2 Comments 

It’s risky driving a car in Seattle. Right now in Washington state, there are anywhere from 20% to 30% of driver’s who don’t have current insurance. To compound that number, many more only carry the state’s minimum requirements. This means that the likely hood of an accident involving someone who doesn’t have any or enough insurance is quite high. This is where Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist coverage comes into play. However, this is the most misunderstood and often overlooked coverage. There are a couple of different reasons for this.

Updated! Great Deals for Seattle Car Buyers

March 16, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

If you’re looking to buy a car sometime soon, here are some deals to consider. Be warned many dealers will make up for these savings by trying to sell you other items you may not need. Luxury items and options in the finance office such as sealant or warranties are classic examples.

Don’t forget to take a look at some of the protection incentives from Ford and GM. These will essentially pay your monthly car payment if you lose your job. Be aware that each car maker has different rules for their plans, such as owning the vehicle for a few months before it actually kicks in.
