+1, a friend recently had his 11 c63 amg t-boned. fixed like new, insurance tried fighting some on value but he fared well, just keep on top of them. Further he immediately traded in car for another a made money in the end... hope the same will go for u, just remember its not an overnight process, and try not to let them get to u.

You never make money on a car. He only took less of a hit.

So my adjuster is saying that the total for the damage is $6,800 the blue book on the car was $29,000 the frame was not damaged so they wouldn't total it out. Maybe if the airbags would have went off then they most likely would have totaled it.

I hope the truck drivers insurance is paying for this and not yours. Oh and don't let one bad apple truck driver make you think all truck drivers are ****tatrds as this one might be unless he/she had some type of mech failiure to cause the accident. I only say this because I drive a truck for a living and am a fellow wrx owner a 11 and an 02.

There are plenty of morons in cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, helicopters, tanks, buses, bikes, scooters, and strollers. I hate them all. Therefore I hate you all. It is easier to figure everyone is a total moron, than to give the benefit of the doubt and them prove they are a moron.

When I first got my license my dad told me that if you assume everyone else on the road is an asshat, very rarely will you be surprised.

OP, glad you're ok and that your car can be fixed.

your insurance should be going after the driver of the truck as well. make sure that you are happy w/' it before you sign anything.

Sorry to see/hear about the damages to your WRX, but your well being is the most important thing. I know how the car damage can still be distressing though, especially in a newer car.

Some dealers will take damaged trades in on a purchase. I'm an auto damage adjuster and I've seen this done in a few instances on some claims by the owners of cars that did not want them after being damaged and not totalled. The dealer gets your repair check and works a trade on the other vehicle you're interested in. It actually helps out both the owner and the dealer because the dealer gets the repair check, can fix the trade in at their cost, and then turn around and put it on their used car lot for sale, and of course the owner gets a new(er) and/or undamged vehicle. Just a heads-up incase you might want to consider that route. Then again, a properly repaired car can do quite well for you as well, especially since a lot of insurance companies guarantee their work for as long as you own the car if repaired at one of their preferred shops. Just keep in mind that many auto insurance policies do not allow for dimished value for the insured, only claimants, so it may be something to pursue against the other insurance company if it becomes a concern/issue for you and diminished value can be determined. Some States have diminished value guidelines as part of their statutes while others don't and become a matter or perception and proof.

Hope this helps.

My dad was hit head on in his brand new F250. It had maybe 2,000 miles on it. $16,000 worth of damage but they wouldn't total it. The front end was basically new(except the motor) and it drives just fine. Make sure you take it to a reputable shop that will warranty their work for as long as you own it. As long as it runs just as good as it did before, and you weren't planning on getting rid of it anytime soon I would just keep it.

So the bodyshop calls me today & says my car is ready to pick up. I get a ride over to the shop to pick up my car. They did a great job on the repairs but "forgot that the back window was tinted" I told them who the hell tints they're side windows but leaves the rear window clear? I also noticed that my front end was scraped pretty bad on the same exact spots below the fog lights from the flatbed tow. I refused to take my car in that condition & that I will only take the car in the condition that it was in before the accident.
The bodyshop says they're not responsible for the tow damage. The tow truck was from geico so I think geico is responsible for the tow damage on the front end.
I called my adjuster and he said not to worry that he'll take care of it.

always have it restored by places authorized by dealerships or dealership collison centres. it makes a big difference on the record. because of the quality of the work. you can tell if there are unequal spaces between panels. like this above photo. notice the door gaps. the left is tighter. i was able to sell my rebuilt car privately after being lowwwballed.

but howd u get ur grenade sticker back from the accident?

As soon as you remove the hand grenade sticker you'll be set! Be sure to make them pay for a four wheel alignment and make sure it drives straight now. My car was never the same after an accident...
