So my Intrepid got totaled today
« on: February 05, 2010, 05:15:11 PM »

Do not worry about me, I'm okay, the car on the other hand not so well. I was driving home from work to pick up the kids from daycare, the road was snow covered, as I started up the hill, a chick in a Mazda 626 slid across the road(she was comming down the hill) hit my car and both airbags popped. If you look at the car you can hardly tell I had a wreck, she it me on the L/F corner, the only tell tale sign it where the impact beam went threw the front facia a couple of inches to the right of the fog lamp. The really sucky thing is I have a trunk full of parts I was going to put on the car, so now I'll need another car until I can get my new(newer) truck.
All I can say is

Tom

Wow, glad you are alright Tom!

Totalled? Is it too expensive to replace the airbags and fix the front? Any pics? That car has been through everything including a shooting and always bounced back.....

Yep Bob totaled, a 1999 with about 90,000 miles, the bags alone total about 2 grand, you need to replace the dash for the passenger side bag, the steering column because of the drivers bag going off, replace the facia, impact beam, l/f impact sensor, it all adds up to a write off., so now I have a bunch of Intrepid parts that will be up for sale on the Intrepid forum I'm on. What sucks is this July or August I was going to look at newer Dodge Rams, Oh well. It could be alot worse, I just have to take it in stride.

I could go that route Steve,but,then I have no where to work on it, might go the 300M route, but then who knows, I'm just so up in the air right now. Just pisses me off, a great car having a tragic end and to think of all the near hits I've almost had in the past 6 years while I drove that car. I figure something out, just need to hear from her Insurance Company.

So I got the estimate for the insurance company today, the total-$4,804.33, so she is a write off I, so soon it will be so long to a great car that hardly ever gave me a problem.

And why do you have to replace those puffsacks in the car?
Doesn't it just drive without them now?

the dash & steering wheel have torn apart from the deployment, plus no insurance co. in America would even give him basic coverage to drive with it in that condition....

That's very true. . .
 
I bet Tom has the connections to put the dash back together.  All he needs is the dash cover and a wheel cover.  The dash comes apart in minutes in these things.
 
It all depends on the structural damage.  There must be 20 of those up at Columbia 2.  Paul hasn't crushed them yet Bob.

You are correct Steve, most of that is the dash, steering column, and both bags
Tom
the new column alone is $1,200 bucks and $1,100 for both bags
