Before you drive it off the dealer’s lot.
How soon can you trade in a fresh car after you buy it?
You can trade it in the day after you buy it, but any vehicle depreciates at least $2000 after you take possession (drive it off the lot). As far as when you should trade a fresh car in, that depends on how much you owe on it and your wishes. Most 60-month payment schedules will get positive equity- that is, the vehicle will be worth more than you owe- after 36 months. If you have delayed payments (like no payments for 90 days or something), it’ll take that much longer to build positive equity. Note that your interest rate will also have an influence on equity: a higher interest rate will take you longer to build positive equity. How good a deal you got will also affect this, and it always helps if the vehicle is in good form when trade-in time comes. But technically you could drive a car one day and trade it in- if you were willing to take a serious hit to the pocketbook!

In Texas is it necessary for a car proprietor to also buy insurance in HIS name in the case where the car is solely used by a friend who HAS insurance with the same car?
Not presently, most state DMVs require that the person who registers the vehicle have insurance on the car. The DMV in TX piloted a program last year that concluded over 25% of registered vehicles are uninsured. Once this program actually goes into affect then the reaction to your question will be yes. But as of now, no. It is significant that the person actually using the vehicle carry insurance on it, but be aware of these issues: 1. As the possessor of a car you can be found liable for harm caused by your vehicle, even if you are not the driver. Two. A lot of insurance companies will require that the person insuring the vehicle is the possessor, however will not be willing to insure your car since you are not the regular driver. Three. If somebody else is going to insure your car, ask they the insurance company list you as an extra interest. This will garauntee that in the event of an accident you are notified and given legal representation if the driver of your car is at-fault.
Do you need car insurance on a car you do not drive?
No. Except if you want to think about the possibility of that carbeing stolen. If it is not on a home owners policy, then you shouldhave some sort of theft insurance on it. But if the car is notbeing driven on the road you do not need insurance on it. Clarification: A homeowners insurance policy will not cover your vehicle; you haveto have a separate auto policy for it. But if you have a car thatyou are not using and don’t plan to use, you can turn the licenseplates in to the DMV and then cancel the insurance on the car. Another take: actually, this depends on the state. I lived inOregon for many years, and according to state law, all Oregoniansare required to have car insurance on ALL CARS THEY OWN, even ifthe car is not used. Granted the majority of people who have carsthey never drive don’t bother to insure them (I wouldn’t), but if acar does not have insurance, even if not driven, it can be towed. Check your state laws on this. The response varies by state. ONE MORE THOUGHT: If the vehicle is financed, the contract yousigned with the bank or finance company most likely requires you tohave physical harm coverage on the vehicle as well. I agree withthe “Clarification” and “Another Take” in that laws vary from stateto state so check your state laws. Homeowners policies specificallyexclude coverage for any self-propelled vehicles other certaintypes such as lawn mowers. In most states you cannot have tagswithout proof of insurance. In Georgia one day with an active tagbut no insurance will get you a fine. Continuous disregard willresult in enhanced fines, registration revocation, impoundment ofthe vehicle, and cancellation of your drivers license. If your particular state requires it and the vehicle is registered,then you very likely need to insure it. If you are storing the car in a garage, you may want to insure itwith a private property insurance plan. Those are pretty cheap andonly insure something to it’s total value. Many car collectors haveinvested literally thousand upon thousands of dollars in their carsso they uncertain them for their value in case of fire or otherunforeseen damages. Home possessor’s insurance may cover a vehicle ifit is garaged if the car is listed as an asset on the homeownerspolicy as a private property investment but that is a very grayarea.
