Advice for Dealing with Car Accident Stress

Yesterday I caused a car accident. I'm a college sophomore and I've never been in a car wreck before. I have liability insurance so it only covers the other persons car and its going to cost $1250 to fix my car which I have no choice but to fix. I also have to appear in court next month to deal with the ticket or whatever. The whole incident has just weighed on my heavily. I can't get any work done, I am having trouble sleeping. I just feel awful. Does anyone have any advice on dealing with this kind of situation?

Best Sports Coupe or Sedan in the $20-50K range that can accommodate a tall driver?

Best Sports Coupe or Sedan in the $20-50K range that can accommodate a tall driver? I'm giving my SUV to my son and want something new and fun to drive. My favorite car ever was a 1988 Porsche 944 -- great handling, adequate power and surprisingly enough room for me at 6'3". Many current cars (Boxsters, 3 series BWM) just are not comfortable. I've read good reviews about the Mazda RX-8 and Acuras will probably test drive this weekend. Any other recommendations?

Old car with low miles = dry rot or not?

I just inherited a 1998 Mountaineer that has only 20,000 miles. It's never been tuned up and still has the original tires. I'm pretty sure the spark plugs are fouled because it's never been driven at highway speeds. Everything appears to be in great shape. What kind of problems can I expect from this car? [more inside]

Paying for repairs on a return lease vehicle

I am returning my Hyundai Accent after a four-year lease and leasing a new car with the same dealer. They evaluated some damage on the returned car which we negotiated around. Can the dealer legally come back after me in the future for any additional repairs or problems they find with my car that they did not find initially.

Two or 4? Need snow tire advice!

My fiancee's car is a 2003 Altima that I would like to put some snow tires on. I have used 4 tires on my vehicle for work (paid for by the company) and am wondering how much difference there is between using 2 or 4. I am not cheaping out on her of course, but we both have concerns over the cost/benefit ratio as we are just starting out. I am very familiar with using 2 new tires on front wheel drive cars with less tread on the back with all seasons and summer tires, and experienced no difficulty in seasonal months. If you have used 2 tires snow tires only, what was your experience? More inside... [more inside]

No scoop on the 5-0

I live in a small city in Texas. I got home this evening and found a cop car scene 2 houses down. My wife went to talk to them and they just said, "Everything's ok." Not wanting us to bother them again, I called the non-emergency number and they said, "I'm sorry, sir, I can't release that information." Are they being evasive or is this just standard procedure? I just want to know what's going on in my 'hood, that's all.
