Honda Pilot Vs. Toyota Highlander: Compare Cars

If you're a busy parent, especially of the kind that doesn't want to be seen in a minivan, seven-passenger crossovers are good substitutes. And if your escape from sliding doors brought you to either the Honda Pilot or the Toyota Highlander, you're on the right track.

Study: Even First Accident Claim Raises Car Insurance Rates For Years

Afraid that making just one auto-insurance claim will raise your rates? That fear is entirely justified by the results of a new study.
