totaled(salvaged) is when the price to fix your car exceeds the value of the car before the accident

Totaling the car is the insurance company's call. i believe jinxxycat had somewhere around 18k in damage and they chose to repair it rather than replace it.

From the looks of it, I cant see any alignment issues coming from this. It appears to be mostly body damage plus the radiator.

The cooler in front of the radiator is for power steering fluid, not engine oil .

Depends upon the percentage of damage on the car. The initial estimate was $18K to repair. They said it would have to be $24K or $28K in damages to total the car (I belive 80% of the cost of the car in damages to total it in PA) But, after they started fixing her, they ended up w/ another $18K in unforseen damages that they charged to the ins co after the fact. Total was $36K in damages, and I have had not ONE problem as a result of the accident since then. She's just fine.

Dude let the insurance company handle it. If they feel it's not repairable then you get a new Z Good luck....

Being that the car is only 3 months old, I would not settle for them fixing it, I would demand a brand new replacement. There is no way they can fix it to perfection, and at 3 months old, that is (was ) it's current condition. If they won't total it and give you every penny of the purchase price, including all taxes, fees, etc. , I would get a lawyer. Sorry for your bad luck

Look at the post times. He posted the question at the same time as the explanation was being posted.


My question is why did the passenger's airbag go off, but not the driver's?

Airbags are funny like that. Most of the damage was on the passenger side. Maybe the sensors on the driver's side aren't that sensitive. Who knows?

In any case, I bet the damage cost will be at least $10k, so the company might pay to fix it. With technology these days, I'm sure they can make it almost new again.

I'm sure it took more than a minute to click "reply", type the question, the click "add reply".

Usually, the sensors all go back to a main control box that determines which airbags to set off. Usually, the box fires both of the fronts, one of the sides, or the fronts and sides together. I've seen just the driver's bag go off (when the "passenger's bag disabled" light is on), but I've never seen just the passenger's bag go off. Strange.

That's so awful to see. I hate that you just got it too. I'm with PerfZ that you should demand a new one in the same condition yours was in, you shouldn't have to deal with a brand new car with that many repairs. I hope your luck gets better.
