Sad day, but it protected me well!

2018 GT
Ins co came back, total loss. Trying to decide if the valuation is good or not. Car was an 18 GT, perfect condition, no dents/dings etc, 26k miles. They came up with $31,564 for the settlement amount.


Looking around online, I can only find 6 GTs for sale within 300 miles of me. I am thinking it is fair, curious what others think?

That’s a hard one to figure out. What do you owe on the vehicle is the big thing. Cause if your upside down then that’s where gap insurance would cover you and if your positive equity then take the money and run.

I guess one lucky point is that I had my winter set up on the car for tires, I have the 20's in my garage to now sell.

This is almost private party value for your car. I know it will be a loss anyways for anyone but insurance company valuation seems ok. Best thing is that you are safe. Good luck finding the new CX-9 !
 
Sad to see, but most important you escaped serious injury.. I got my CX9 because someone ploughed into my wife's Odyssey, while she was at a stoplight. ending it's career...But she and my daughter were unhurt, Thank Jehovah. Take care and hope the insurance co. does right by you.

Already bought a nextbase camera for the front, buying a second one soon for my other car.

Thanks. I am not sure if PA allows the diminished value but that was part of my concern. It was totaled. However, if it wasn't I was going to see a lawyer and I may still need one. Thanks
Sorry to see your accident. Glad your OK.
My 4 month old 2019 CX-5 Reserve with 2300 miles was rear ended & totaled a few months back. An elderly women in a MB SUV claimed she hit the gas instead of the the brakes. Hit me going about 40 mph. My son & I both got banged up but no serious injuries. I was also worried they might not total it but fortunately it was. I have new vehicle replacement with Erie Insurance in PA and they handled everything & settled with the women's insurance. The new car replacement on my policy would have made up any depreciation but the appraised value actually came back more than what I paid for it new.
Final outcome, I replaced the vehicle with it's clone & actually got a better price on the second than I did on the first. I do have some lingering issues with my hip from the accident & may decide to talk with a lawyer about that.

Important point here...don't sign off the insurance settlement for injuries until enough time has elapsed for you to know you're doing OK. It's OK to sign off on the property settlement...the money for the car...as soon as you're satisfied. Sometimes a lawyer is needed, and sometimes you end up with less after their fees than if you'd done it yourself. Evaluate the situation carefully, then if needed, pick a lawyer experienced in this part of the law.

This is why I have a dash cam. Glad the cx9 protected you

yes totally agree having a dashcam helps validate the claim! Talking abt dash cams this week I know someone who got hit in the front fender driver side and the other driver claiming it was not his fault! If only the person I know had a dash am then it would refute other driver’s claim...it came down to his word against other driver’s word and the actual damage on both vehicles....investigation taking longer as no witnesses! oh well..$50 dashcam would have helped!
