Back pain is so prevalent that it might seem like an inescapable fact of life. According to The University of Maryland Medical Center, 84% of people worldwide will experience back pain at some point in their lives.

2. Position of the seat
3. Length of time driving

Automobile insurance rates are based on your driving record, the type of car you drive, the area where you live and the deductible you choose to pay. If you live in a city with one of the worst car theft rates, expect higher premiums (monthly payments). If you live in a state with high premiums to start, you might want to buy a used Honda Fit to save money on gas, instead.

For every dealer that’s all hoity-toity, there is a store that’s a little rough around the edges. They’re the used car lots off the mile roads. They haven’t changed with the times, the televisions are analog and the waiting rooms smell like cigarettes and stale coffee.
