I was in an accident last week and the other insurance company decided to fix my car (10K in damage)
I am going to file a Diminished Value Claim when the car is returned to me. In order to have a good argument I need to know what you would pay for car 1 and for car 2.
I am also going to take the car to a few dealers to ask what they would pay for trade in on the wrecked car vs the no accident car.
I am not looking for an LGT.
Assume for a moment you are in the market for a 2005 Legacy GT LTD.
You have found Two cars Same color,leather, 5spd, etc.
1. 41K miles
2. No accidents
3. Clean Title
1. 41K Miles
2. Major front end accident
3. Clean title
Nada Clean Retail is 15,475
Both cars look great and have no visible signs of repair or damage.
Assume no mods and otherwise completely stock
How much would you pay for car 1 and how much for car 2.
