I fixed my 20th. ann when X pulled in front of a Cadillac and it was moved 4" to the left. If they do total see what the insurance company will let you have it for. I need a daily driver and been watching insurance yard here.
Was also looking at the old part of post. My son and I went to get him a new F-150 Super Crew a few months ago. When we looked at and drove the Eco Boost the sticker said same mileage as the V-8 so we both agreed the V-8 was the better choice. The boost had 10 speed and 8 has 6 speed auto. We both felt the 8 was better. That is a truck not a car.


It blew the knee airbag. It's not really that expensive (3-400) in the grand scheme of things. It doesn't blow a panel like other locations.

According to the estimate sheet, I don't see any cost associated with the body twisting. Diver fender, door repair, hood replacement, front bumper and everything associated w it, radiator support, paint, etc. Parts total was around 5k and the rest was labor.

I would be happy either way as long as they pay off the note. According to the cash value, it should be close. I love the car and so would be happy if they fixed it. Actually, with the bumper off, I have a few mods I would like to do.

I'll let you know what they tell me. The car still ran well as I drove it off the road.

I would make sure they put on frame machine and make sure it is still right. Equal and opposite reaction comes into play here. Something had to move.
I was at insurance yard once and there was a new mustang there with 300 miles on it. The passanger door was inside the car and the rocker box was bent where the car got hit in the door. I made a list of what it would take to fix. Went to the Ford dealer and had the parts guy going to look up the prices. He looked at me funny and said "this is not a car in the insurance yard is it?" I told him yes and he laughed and said to no buy it. The local Chevy dealer was doing the body work had it on frame machine and the new guy got to over zealous. He literally tore the floor pan in half under the car where I could not see the welds and they had to total it.
The airbags today total lots of cars with very minimal damage. They tear the interior apart when the all go. I have heard of sun roofs blowing out when they deploy.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

If they decide to fix it, the shop has already said they would put it on a frame machine and check. I received a very short email from insurance saying the shop over estimated by 4K according to the adjuster. This is a very reliable shop and so I've asked for the adjuster paperwork to compare.

BTW. Has anyone ever used https://www.oemfordpart.com

The panel for the air bag should be reusable. It literally just popped the panel down. I was surprised.

Well they called on Friday and decided it was a total loss. We're still working out the details but in the mean time I took advantage of the end of model year specials.

Here's my new 2017 Ecoboost Premium with Pony (California special in 2016) package. I picked her up at 8pm so I've not had much time yet but so far I'm impressed.

That is amazing to total with so little damage showing.
You do have a new car now. Did they say if you could but the old one or does it go to auction yard as most do?
Texas and maybe soon Florida will be loaded with flood damaged cars that have great body parts to fix a car like yours with.

That's true about parts. I've asked for them to give me the cash value and the amount they will give me if I keep the car. It will depend on how the numbers run as to whether I take either offer.

They trying to get me to release the car but I've refused until we have an agreement in place.

The car has been paid off and I’m waiting for the title. I chose to keep it and I’m selling it to the body shop. He has it repaired and is giving it to his son.

In fact, he made the 16 year old boy do all the work to earn it. Very good daddy.
