the repair is $8300 in parts then the dealership wanted to charge $7500 in labor... When i had the sti, i was fine, and i did a home equity line on the house to payoff my second mortgage. When i wrecked, i had to get a car. So i choose to buy the wrx because the insuarnce company said they would pay the car off. Well, they didnt total it, and i ended up paying for the car, have the sti payment and now i still have both morgages and the money for the car is spent. So now, i am paying alot more for something that i dont use, and dont have the money to back the payments up with.
The car is WRB. the full lein is about $30k... the insurance gave me the money for the fix, but if i fix it then no one is going to pay what i owe for the car. If i take the check from the insurance for the fix, and someone pays me for the car then i will be able to payoff what i owe, someone gets an STi for $15k and i am clean. Perry subaru is in Virginia Beach, VA. I will send pics to those who requested. Thanks,
