Lost My Ride

Postby txchamps » Mon Aug 29, 2022 1:48 pm

My li'l Blue Buggy got in an accident last month. The driver (who shall remain unnamed -- me) changed lanes without checking his blind spot :nono: and got hit squarely on the driver's side by a frickin' Toyota Highlander, creaming the front door, rear door, rocker panel and B pillar. Of course the Toyota sustained minimal damage, mostly cosmetic. But not my 2014 Versa Note S with just shy of 50k miles on it. Initial estimate from the body shop was $4k, but when the pulled the doors they realized that the B pillar would need to be replaced ( cut out and the new one welded into place) they tacked on another $3k. At that point my insurance totalled it. My Baby! :cry:

Can you believe that for an 8 year old car, bone stock, electric nothing (manual 5 speed, crank window, manual door locks, no blue toooth, just a CD player and AM FM radio), they settled for $9800?!?! I paid $11,500 brand spankin new. We live in strange times.

I took the money and ran.

But I miss my buggy, warts and all. :frown:

Only the insurance company's pride. :lolling:

Sheesh, $9800?

Glad no one was hurt and you got paid well by the insurance.

I'm actually kindof impressed it was 11,500 brand new.

That's exactly the point. How utterly ridiculous.
