No it did not. My theory is that where it hit more towards that side it did not deploy them. Does not make sense though. Going 55 and hitting an eight pointer I expecte them to. Another thought is I more or less hit the legs with my bumper and the body flipped on the hood so the brunt of the force was not near the sensors but above them. I still feel lucky to be alive and I feel as if the scoop kept the deer from hitting the wind shield.

Thanks for the kind words. Our damages look very similar I suspect totaling due to what it looked like under the good. I am currently in the good on what I owe and would be better off to be totaled. I will stay in the Subaru family if its the case.

Well maybe that's what's taking so long, dealer teardown? The fact that it took your car 10 days for analysis makes me feel mildly better, as that's where I'm at, although the adjuster just started looking at it Monday, and it just went to the dealer yesterday afternoon.

when some grandpa hit my car in a parking lot it took a month from the date of the accident to when I had it back, at it was only one damaged panel, wheel repaint and an alignment

OP as mentioned I wouldn't worry about color matching (if you are worried). I was super skeptical and always thought I'd be able to tell because I am super picky with my cars and it was a very unique silver color. I can't tell the difference!

She'll be back to 100% before you know it. Now getting over the mental fear of driving rural roads in deer country is going to take a lot longer to repair...

I am OCD about my car and even though I know it will be "fixed" it will bother the hell out of me. Check engine light came on instantly and then it shut down so I don't know what damage was done to the engine.
So buy the parts from the dealer. They sell painted parts for my gd.. Or buy a whole front end from the classified. Looks cosmetic to me.

All I know is the engine did not sound too happy when it happend so I don't know the extent of that damage. The radiator support beam was bent as well don't know how far back in the engine bay everything was pushed I did not attempt to open the hood.

Why were you driving so slowly on a limited access highway? The deer must has spotted you as a sucka and decided to make its move.

J/K.

Glad you're okay. The great news is the deer didn't bounce up into the windshield. I hope the insurance process isn't too much of a PITA. I have a good venison chili recipe if you need one.

Glad you are okay! That's the main thing. I understand you would rather them total it out and maybe they will but if they don't you have to take that into consideration and make sure they fix her right.

The aftermarket is one reason I want it totaled. I sold a bunch of stock parts and without those aftermarket parts my car will not run. It messed up the FMIC and CAI for sure.

Just remember: hit the deer, don't swerve. If you swerve and run your car into a guardrail trying to avoid a deer, it's your fault, whereas hitting the deer is an act of god and you're covered.

I was just responding to another individual. I didn't get one. Though if you swerve to miss a deer and wreck they will give you a ticket for being unable to maintain control of the vehicle.

It really is.

Well one month later the car is still in the shop. It wasn't totaled. Body looks good now. However motor isn't too hot.

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.
