Got Problems?

Recommended Posts

I'm glad you are OK.  It's a real bummer to go through this.  I got rear-ended a few years ago and it was expensive for the repair, and the damage was NOTHING like the picture of your Lexus.  I would suspect totaled.  Best of luck in the search for a car.  It's a real jungle out there!!

OH NO!!!!  

 

My wife is looking for a replacement for her 2003 Mercedes E320 wagon.  She needs room to haul photo equipment, and of course golf clubs.  I have been looking at some of the dealerships at SUVs.  One day I happened to ask if she had ever considered a minivan.  I saw my life pass in front of me!!  Not ever going to happen.

As unexciting as they are, they are really good for golf trip/equipment and actually very comfortable.  I had one (not by choice, I was supposed to have an F150) had one on my trip to Florida earlier this year, drove it round trip from Tampa to Pensacola and it was actually pretty good.   Although I don't think I turned any heads of anyone....ha

2 different SUVs and if that doesn't suit your fancy a 4 door sedan. But the latter is not 'your father's Oldsmobile' !

 

Now if you go for the 911 you'll have to make a decision: do I take my clubs or my wife (or other passenger) - you won't be able to take both

Hacker, really sorry to hear of your accident, but genuinely happy that you were not physically hurt.   It is my understanding, I'm not certain, that determining a vehicle is totaled is an economic factor.   That is, if it costs more to fix it than to replace it, it will be considered totaled.  Under any circumstance, having been in a accident, make sure that you are compensated for the lost value of the vehicle.    

 

Having just gone through this, the determining value is about 75% of blue book value.  You will be offered the blue book value; which you have a right to negotiate.

I was talking to CG2 about this the other day. I was surprised that my car wasn't worth more that it was listed on kbb.com. Appreciate the info.

We would have to drive to the course separately.  My wife would take her clubs to the course in the Porsche. 

 

Regarding the minivan, she might get one; might, but it has to go from 0-60 in less than 7 sec.

That reminds me of the story of the guy that knew his wife was upset but had no idea why.   So he asks, why can I do to make you happy.  She says, well, tomorrow morning, if I see something in the driveway that can can go from 0 to 200 in seconds.   Next morning she gets up and there it sits in the driveway-----a bathroom scale.

Saw my first snow plow/sander of the year today.  30 minutes later we got freezing rain.  I'm blaming the snow plow.

It is always amazing how quickly a car depreciates. I was hoping that mine was worth more since it only had 7000 miles on it when it was totaled. I just hate having to start car shopping again. Here is what mine looked like
