Did you know you could decrease your premium 15-40 percent just by increasing your deductible to $500 or even $1,000? Insurance statistics have shown the average driver makes a collision claim once every 11 years and reports a total loss every 50 years, so the odds maybe in your favor. If you’re driving an older car, you may consider a liability policy and drop collision. This is only a good idea if your car doesn’t have a large market value.
GM is recalling almost 51,000 Cadillac SRX because of a problem with the transmission control module. GM says some drives have experienced a 3-4 second hesitation when the driver accelerates uphill. General Motors said the problem would happen if the transmission upshifts from first to second gear and then the driver presses the brakes, slowing the vehicle to less than 5 MPH, and then accelerates again.
