The hard part!
Just let me enjoy the moment! 😂
Now I have time to come to those terms on my own time.
That’s where I was on my 60 after owning it for 18 years. It sat parked and didn’t get the love it deserved. Moving up to the 100 made sense with a young family and slightly nervous wife...
Update Major: NOT totaled
Evidently my adjuster is a fan. He’s called back 3 times since this went down. Each time with a higher settlement amount. I haven’t been trying to negotiate. I’ve just laid out the facts.
Today he called and stated he’s spent hours shopping for these. He sent a few...
Technically, I’ve just purchased an affordable, hopefully reliable option for now.
I haven’t given insurance an answer yet.
Decided either way, this gives me a ride for now so I’m not rushed to find a replacement.
thanks for the input everyone.
After some shopping, I found it a lot easier to find a commuter for 9K and keep my truck.
I had planned on retiring the 06 as a DD in the next year and Converting it to a camper of sorts.
My wife has driven MDX’s for the last 12 years and we’ve been...
The value before the accident? Well I think the market values right now are crazy. I paid 15K for this 4 years ago with 100K miles bone stock. Flew to West Tx to get it. Today, based on the market I would have listed it for 18K. So I was pleased with the payout.
I’m looking at an 06 LX...
You make a good point. I would rather keep my truck forever and not worry about the carfax or resale value.
I suspected it would be closer to 7K for repairs and it would be better than it was before. I’ve never been in this situation. In hindsight, I would have gotten a quote first...
Yes, there are. But I need a daily driver and insurance won’t fully cover a salvage or rebuilt title.
And without functional side curtain bags the whole dash bag system is out of play.
My insurance guys a cruiser head and he said fix it on the cheap and it will SELL. He said that’s likely...
They offered me $18.5K to take it.
The buyback is 9K.
I’m waiting to hear how much rebuilding the airbag system will cost. My friend who owns the body shop says it’s a great alternative which he did for his own vehicle but would never offer to the general public. There’s a place in Atlanta...
One downside of not replacing the airbags: it would render all airbags useless through the computer. If it wasn’t my DD with kids and all I’d feel differently. It’s now got 198k on it. I commute 60 miles round trip daily. The other option is to not fix anything and retire it as a camper...
Well the east tn country roads got the best of me. No room for forgiveness as they say.
Dropped the front passenger side into a ditch and right back out. Bu both sides deployed.
So now I’m faced with having the airbag system repurposed (my buddy owns a reputable body shop who’s comfortable...
Went with Slee’s OME 2.5 medium w/ diff drop kit. Fortunately I love the way it handles the road. It’s my DD on curvy country roads/interstate. It enjoys fire roads on the weekends.
It was too beautiful. I had to strike a pose and share it with someone.
Any update on this?
I’m dealing with the exact same thing.
Has happened 3 times over the last 2 years.
Yesterday it left me and my family stranded at multiple red lights in downtown Atlanta during rush hour on our way to the aquarium.
Unfortunately my CeL is chronically on due to...
