I've been hit!

Hey guys so I regret to let you know that I've recently been rear-ended. I'll post pics later I'm working right now but my car suffered rear bumper with passenger side rear wheel tail light quarter panel and worst of all bent rear subframe. I'm currently in the process of getting the insurance estimator to come out and look at it again with another shop to confirm the subframe damage and possibly worse case scenario consider my car a total loss.

I want to see what you guys would do, what you think is going to happen? I currently have a check from Geico for rear bumper quarter panel and tail light for 2500 I know that's not enough to fix everything what would you guys do at this point?

My car roughly has 92000 miles it's a 2006 V6 coupe automatic ex-l the blue book value is right around 4k wtf?!

I bought it for 10k in 2013 and blue book value at the time was 14k

Actually it is in fact the ex-l V6 model on kbb.com I was hoping the same thing when I first saw the price. To top everything off my registration expired today haha no point in renewing it if it's going to be totaled...I really couldn't have asked for better timing. And by the way HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! I sincerely hope the beginning of everyone's year isn't nearly as rough as mine as far as our accords go.

If insurance totals the car out, take that and your Geico check towards another vehicle?

If your insurance company allows it, you may want to purchase the vehicle back as a salvaged title. That's quite a loss at only 4k. In Southern California, the KBB estimates are always low compared to the actual used market.

Good luck!

Hey guys here's the update I've been having fun with my new car that's why I forgot to post in here.

The great news is I bought back my car for $800 and they gave me 8500 before that because that's the price that they valued my car at. So I used that money to buy an 02 Lexus is300 that I'm having some fun with and in the meantime I just got an engine from an 06 TL automatic for a sweet deal so I'm gonna fix the subframe with probably a used one from a junkyard somewhere and then throw that engine in my accord AFTER I get it inspected and all that legal stuff.
