They do in VA. Would have made good deer jerky. Just hope that the engine isn't done for. This has sucked so far.

Any painter worth a crap can match that color. Yellow on the other hand is a bitch.

VA is ate up with deer. Especially since I live in south west VA where the hunters run them out of the woods.

It was around a 6 to 8 point deer huge ass thing. He car is back together. Just the engine is messed up now. I wish the adjuster had ordered the engine to be checked before the body work was done. If they had it would have probably been totaled. The body shop cranked it up for me and it sounds awful. Wouldn't be surprised if they find bent valves. Especially if it skipped timing.

yeah it sounds like you may have jumped a tooth. That can happen ... and it will run but sound awful and barely alive. You may have some bent valves, but I had the same thing happen when I got hit by an old guy in a truck and all were ok. You'll get new headgaskets, a new t-belt, and covers.

Side note, the dealer I used to work at, we had a 735i in, after the owner hit a deer going 135mph. He said the deer "exploded". And the hood flew up and smashed the roof, plus major front end damage = totaled. And I'd bet due to his speed his insurance wanted nothing to do with it.

The only type of deer I ever see here in the mountains of NH are moose. Always freaks you out to come around a corner and see this staring at you. I've hit two and it's not fun.

I hit a deer in my Mazdaspeed a few months ago. I had the same concerns that you did as far as paint match, using the right parts, etc.

I dropped off a dirty scratched up smelly car (hit a skunk a week later). When I picked it up, it looked brand new.

Find a place that will fix it to your satisfaction. When you get it back and drive it again, you'll forget it ever happened.

They waited until last week to tell me that there continues to be a check engine light. The code is for a misfire on cyl 1, 3, and crank position sensor. They also told me they found a small hole in the timing belt cover. Sucks really. The will be sending the car to a Subaru dealership next week.
Talk to your insurance about having them reimburse you for the car's lost value. Since it now has an accident on its record the resale is lower, and the insurance company needs to cover that difference.

I hit a deer once. It managed to fit under my MR2.




The smell of it burning on my exhaust made me hungry.

The first time I hit a moose the windshield smashed all over me, but somehow I didn't get crushed to death like many other less fortunate drivers. When I picked the car up from the repair shop, I drove away feeling pretty happy to have a new looking car. Then I turned on the vents and got sprayed with moose hair and small glass shards. It smelled like a shredded moose carcass.

nhmtns,

That sounds like pretty shoddy workmanship to me. Glass down the vents is a common and known condition of a vehicle. The big hint to the shop is usually, well - broken glass all over the dash and down the defroster. I'd turn right back around to the shop and I would be pretty pissed off. A good shop takes the car for a test drive, ensuring the ventilation, wipers, lights, engine, trans, etc all work as original before handing the keys over. You might want to list that shop on Angie's List or similar so others will know. Unless they made it right for you?

Back home in Maine where I grew up they taught us how to hit a moose in Driver's Ed. You aim for the legs with the driver's side A-pillar so it will fall over the vehicle.

They even showed a video that clearly demonstrated why you don't sit and honk your horn at a moose or flash your lights if there is one stopped in the roadway. It will attack your car.

Fortunately I haven't had any close encounters where I've needed to utilize such "knowledge" except in small talk

That's really unfortunate and I'm sorry, but that made me burst out laughing

Wow I guess I can consider myself lucky. I hit a huge deer last week going 35mph at night. Swerved to minimize the damage and ended up plowing it for about 25 feet until I stopped. Watched it try to gain traction as I was pushing it, then it ran away and left me with a dented fender and some small scratches on the bumper. What kills me is the car only has 3500 miles on it...

In VT near the Canadian border I almost squished a pissed-off turkey. That damn thing hopped in front of the car, and instead of freaking out, bubbled itself and wobbled towards the car while I was locking the brakes with a heart attack in progress.

In retrospect, I should have run over it - though i'd have headaches at the border, trying to explain importing feathery bits of meat protruding from the radiator.

I don't like turkeys anymore.

New fender, awesome paint job. It's like nothing ever happened.

theres a reason Iowa is 1 in 75. you can drive pretty much anywhere in Iowa and you can see packs of deer up to 20-30. I live in North east Iowa where if you aren't aware that deer are literally everywhere (yes, roaming in the middle of town) you will hit them, and usually its not just 1.
