Q: Does Arizona require dealers to have full insurance coverage on financed vehicles?

Q: What are my rights as a renter of a vehicle when i notice the companies self insurance is expired?

you can turn in the rental--and may want to. If you have your own coverage, ask about it from your insurer. However, the big issue is property damage and if you paid for that you want to know you are covered.
