Turtle vs. Deer

So in a match between the turtle versus a deer, who do you think would win? My answer, the turtle, but just barely...





I was supposed to introduce to you guys our third vehicle. It wasn't a Civic this time, it was a Kia Rio hatchback, a green one, I already gave it the nickname the turtle, becuase it is green, has a hatch, and well, I personally think it would be faster in the water than on land. It stinks inside because the former owner smoked in it. It has low mileage and looked good when we bought it last Saturday, Nov. 5th. It was a used vehicle.

I got a call @ 4:30 in the morning and I had to pick my dad up. I picked him up and we found the place that they towed the car to. My dad managed to hit a deer. The deer was huge. Deer parts were still on the car. He said he didn't stop becuase the thing came out of no-where. Which, if you look at the car, is probably why the thing didn't land up on the windshield. The guy behind my dad called the cops because my dad doesn't have a cel. The worst thing is, since it is a new car, no one bothered to call the insurance right away to get it insured. The radiator was pushed back, the hood and fender messed up, the headlights were busted. I do not know what happened to the deer.


Deer fur.


Deer blood.


My mom was in the way for this one, but you could clearly see the damage. It was as good as a Kia could be before the deer came along.

It does. It has spent less than a week at home and it already looks like its been through hell and back.

We need to keep it at the towing place becuase we still don't know what we're going to do with it.

Your moms cute no im just messing with you. but really shes cute though, i say cute cause i dont want to be a total *** and say hot, but you get what im thinking, if i were you i would go get a rental car that looks exactly the same as that one and put your tags on it and all your info like registration etc and take to the insurance place get insurance on it take the tags off of the rental put everything back onto your car take the rental car back and 1 month later call your insurance company and tell them you hit a deer. make sure you keep it covered with a canvis or tarp so it wont rust and be sure to not tell very many more people what youve done unless you live in a huge city. Just a thought, its not like ive done it b-4 or anything lol

exactly what I was thinking. 1 out of 3 cars, and the one that got into a major accident was the one that wasn't a Civic.



Anyway, I don't quite understand what is happening. I think my dad told me that since you can't drive with out insurance, the car was supposed to have insurance the moment we bought it from the dearership.

The switching thing won't work becuase the companies check the vin. Or, the good ones do at least.

you want him to commit federal offense to save a couple grand? that could be im guessing 2 grandISH. and hes gonna do all that to be thrown in jail and get massive fines?

not to mention that there are several vin locations on a car and sometimes the insurance people will just look for that, plus th rental will have to have all the same features and color and that fun stuff. plus if the rental has higher mileage (which it def does cus his turtle sounds new) hes fugged.

which is exactly what we tried to do. however, if you want something with fairly low mileage, you're paying $4-5k more for a similar Honda/Nissan/Toyota from the same year.

personally, I would have bought a Miata (I actually found one cheaper than the Kia and in great shape too), but insurance for those things are killer for someone under 25.

^ yeah, that is a stupid idea, there's probably 10 spots on the car w/ the vin on it........facing mad jail time for a couple of grand, I don't get it. It's like robbing a bank, the average score is like 1500 and you're doing many years in jail????

According to state law a car is covered under your existing policy for up to 7 days with liability. You may attempt to claim this on your insurance on the other 2 vehicles. If you push them, they will probably take care of it. No you cant get tags that way, but you have 30 days to register and tag the vehicle.

Very very good question. It looks like it will need an entirely new front end, excluding the bumper, including one fender. It will need a new radiator and the metal parts attached to that too, but beyond that, the deer didn't damage the engine as there was a lot of space between the radiator and the engine.

I was told that the insurance guy will check it out either today or tomorrow. He's going to tell us whether the parts/labor are worth more than the car... Which brings us to the question, are Kia parts expensive? Also, would that have ruined the handling? What am I talking about... Kia and "handling"...
