    Rich glad it worked out for you. Maybe go back to the same dealer as before and they will give you a frequent buyer discount! :D

    Good for you!

    BTW, with a good shop it's not luck, hubby's shop has done more than one of these ground up re-builds over the last few years and they ARE a new vehicle with some original parts. It's a factory frame and factory parts, some came from the owners original vehicle and the replacements for the damaged ones came from the factory. You really do need a shop that knows what they're doing to pull it off though, his guys have 15-20 years of body shop experience and the right tools which makes a difference. A shop without an oven to bake the paint on won't get the factory results..it's an incredibly expensive piece of equipment and not all shops have one.

    Anyway, I'm glad things worked out well for you! Making the customer happy is the best move in the long run.

    I have heard and experienced that new vehicle that gets creamed you may be better off. The adjusters seem to be more inclined to truly make you whole rather than just get by.

    I got clobbered in a car only a few weeks old, other person 100% at fault. He had the same insurance company too. They seemed happy to jump through hoops for me and charge it all to their other customer...

    Great news. I hope this accident doesn't count against you though.

    My wife's HIghlander was just repaired after being hit twice from behind. She was puched into the car in front of her, so they had both ends to deal with. David Maus Toyota's body shop works miracles. You can not tell it was in an accident. Not under the hood, and not under the frame. Truly remarkable.

    Same here - we have Erie Insurance and our van was hit by another person with the same insurance company. Everything was fixed fairly and our out of pocket was zero.
