i wrecked my car, 56k go get a drink.








long story. basically...someone on incoming traffic was trying to cut a left turn but the person infront of me hit him, then he spun out and i ended up hitting him.

initial estimate says its most likely not a total loss, but either way, im screwed.

Damn Skip, it sounds like you were lucky that's all the damage you had. It could have been a lot worse. Hopefully your insurance won't go up too much. When my step sis wrecked my car, my insurance only went up $30/mo more. I was expecting $100+ increase. Good luck mang!

Riiiiigt go commit insurance fraud that sounds like a plan


Car is fixable and a good shop can repair that so it is just as strong as before if not better. idk i trust the shop i work at for that kind of repair . If you take it to a ins co recomeded shop and you dont like the job they did call the ins co and complain untill it is just how you want it.

I have a question, did you air bags go off? Looking at the picture, the right front impact sensor wire is completely ripped out from the sensor.

While you are right, the car is fixable, and you are also right that insurance farud is a NO NO, anyone who has been in a significant accident can tell you, it's never the same. It always has some little quirk after an accident.

True, but thats why you say something to the ins co. alot of ppl are afraid of them when you shouldnt be. you pay them, and 99% of the time on an ins claim it will say that they will repair the car to preaccident condition so if it not how it was complain you pay these pople good money incase stuff like this happens. sometimes you have to be a real jerk to get what you want out of them , but its your right as a policy holder.

It isn't your fault so whoever hit you's insurance should be the one that goes up. You get full compensation, even for your performance parts. Don't let them screw you.

airbags didnt go off because my car went under the car I HIT. Im at fault because i "failed to control vehicle speed to avoid an accident." I am not the cause of the accident, but police hold me responsible for what happened to my own car. so i got a ticket. no, i wasnt speeding. Initial estimate is between 5-7g's.

people who think a car is never the same...i dont agree. I work and study automotive technology, and i will be the first to tell you that this car will be just fine after all repairs. I believe maryland state law requires the frame to be up to 3mm to factory spec. You shouldnt let the saying "it'll never be the same" get to you, because a QUALITY shop will leave the car just like new.

I actually want my car repaired, because its a DX and its only worth 8-9g...honestly...what can i buy for that amount of money? my 2002 only has 19,000 miles on it. Im actually praying that my insurance wont total it.
