Default Can you believe they fixed this car?

This is my old car, the one I got rid of in Sept because it was still messed up from the accident. $14,000 damage and they fixed it because they would rather not pay me a few thousand more than that and I get a wrecked car.[img]http://www.saturnfans.com/photos/data/500/thumbs/*******s_004.jpg[/img]

a patch of ice and a light pole, not a good combo.

Though I do rather enjoy the 06 QC with the 2.4

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I used to work in a frame and front-end shop. Trust me... That is light damage compared to MANY cars we "brought back from the dead" for our customers!

Um, yeah, I can believe they fixed it if it saved them a few thousand dollars. Why wouldn't they?

because the value of the car was 15,000 at the time, and the policy is that they would write off the car if it was damaged over 70% of the value of the car, but I had a stupid autopac lady.

And as for the other comment, I was planning on keeping the car, but the frame was still messed and it continued to play havoc with the front end of the car.

That simply means the frame/body/front-end shop that did the repair didn't do a good job.
