Being airbags didn't deploy chances of it being totaled is pretty small.
jeez whiz are you that blind...........??What I am trying to get at is if the car is valued at $10K, and my insurance will pay up to 80% of the value of the car for repairs before they total it, then I would have up to $8K in repairs available before they total the car. I don't think it has $8K in damage.
Again - I don't know what the car is valued at and I don't know what my insurance company's threshold is for repairs. If the car is valued at $9K and they only do a 50% threshold then they would only provide for $4,500 in repairs before totalling it out...then I might be in trouble.
what are you some kind of an idiot..........??Well golly gee willakers! I supposed I could look up the KBB value but you already did it for me even though no one ever asked you to do so. Maybe you are the blind one, dear friend, if you think that insurance companies go by KBB values. When was the last time you received anything close to KBB value for a vehicle you were trading in? Or, on the flip side, when was the last time you paid KBB value for a used car you were purchasing?
What I am looking for from the experts on this forum is for someone to say, "yes, I was in a similiar situation and the repairs were $X,XXX." I know right now we are talking pie in the sky stuff since none of us really know what is damaged.
Maybe there is someone on this board that has dealt with insurance appraisals in the past that can tell me how much their insurance would pay out before totalling the car?
