Dec. 16th I had a U-Haul Van carrying two Marines picking up Toys for Tots boxes rear end me and push me into a Jeep Wrangler. Yes, a Tib sandwich....

I just got the estimate to repair it.....$11,000!!!!! My insurance company is going to pay for the repair...rear bumper, trunk, tail lights, hood, front bumper, radiator, headlights and more. The car would have been driveable if the radiator cap wasn't sheared off. The damage is mostly all cosmetic and I should get it back in about a month....hopefully.

It hasn't been a very good Xmas without my Tib.

11,000!!! Thats like the price of a used tibby in the first place! Cant the insurance just pay you the money or something, and you could buy another car or something. Because even after its fixed, the car is probably going to have like a bad alignment or something, since the crash probably warped your chassis.

Its an 06tib. Mine is bluebook for like 20,000 right now (I do have an SE though). Makes sense that they are paying to fix it...the issue is why is your insurance paying for it and not theirs?

Trying to deal with the insurance from U-Haul has been a nightmare. My insurance will recover the money from them and return my deductable. I'd rather have my insurance comp. fight them and not delay the repair.

The blue book on the car with less than 4K miles on it, not including my add ons, is ~20K. With the touch screen stereo/nav/alarm it's close to 22K. Most insurance companies look to see if the repair cost is below 70% of blue book. In this case it was.

Most of the damage was cosmetic except for the hood and trunk. Getting plastic pieces from Korea is not cheap I guess...
