I rearended a nice pearl white 2000 Honda Prelude last thrusday in rush hour traffic. The left side of the bumper dented in 4 inches and the bumper cover broke out words and back on that side. The left corner of the hood got a little dent and the left quarter panel dented it. My bodyshop tells me the damage costs $2100!!! I check blue book and the car is worth $1300. My insurance company is going to say "Sorry the damage is more than the value of the car. We're gonna have to total it." I drove it 400 miles on friday and saturday and I still get 40 miles to the gallon. No leaks, the engine runs fine. It still is a perfect car. With a minor dent. If my insurance company sides with me that the car is ok they'll probably cut me a check the car and I'll get it fixed. If that happens. I'm ordering a Erebuni fron bumper for the same price as a replacement bumper. If that doesn't happen, then I'm going to have to find another way to fix it.

The good news so far is that I have a prospect 91 light blue metallic clearcoat excel 4 blocks down the road abandoned that I'm in the process of finding the owner and acquiring! So that makes me happy!

gotta love the huge resale value on hyundais, my two accidents worth (not my faults) together would be getting close to totalling my car... $3100 for one, and $2000 for the other, it's crazy, they weren't even bad accidents either

Damn, maybe thats part of the reason my insurance is so damn high! The resale values means they'll have to total the car instead of paying to fix it and rape me with rates for another decade (on that car anyways).<img src=icon_smile_blackeye.gif border=0 align=middle>
