02 Legacy wreck: damage pictures.
Posted 24 December 2004 - 01:37 PM
I'd like to see the Legacy totalled out, but even with the suspension damage and frame tweek on the drivers side I think it can be fixed. Damn.
The other driver got out of his car and apologized, said it was all his fault.
Officer was there didn't write any tickets because it was private property.
Said if he was going to write a ticket he would have written the other fellow for failure to yield. Gave me his card and said if we had any trouble with insurance to find out his days in court and subpoena him as a witness.
Want to take guesses on the repair bill for this damage? Engine runs and car will move under its own power, at least in a straight line. No fluid leaks from under the car. Drivers side wheel/tire/suspension assembly is pushed backwards about a foot. I haven't gotten under it to take a good look yet.
Oh well. C'est la Vie.
Don't ask about parts.

Hartford/Omni insurance is going to be taking care of the damage and the costs.
I contacted them on the 23rd and was told that they only do rentals on a reimbursement basis. 30.00 maximum for a day. A nice guy at Enterprise Rental car gave me a 2005 Ford F150 4x4 Supercab for 27.27 a day(I need the 4wd for the driveway). They are usually 100.00 a day. He said Merry Christmas. Again, any SWAGS on repair cost?

man and I have a friend with a 02 and it's a bummer to see stuff like that but of course he is having his own issues with a leaking HG externaly but it is 2 inches higher than that leg due to an install of King Springs thanks to me installing them and after seeing the suspension components on his 02 Leg I would think that yours is toast cause it's gonna take alot to get it back to spec's especialy since it's mounted to the Unibody in a few places

Looking at the damage again and thinking about what the truck looked like at the scene, I swear the front bumper of the truck went up the hood and broke the windshield. All the damage on the side of the Legacy was from the left front tire of the truck. The tire on the truck and all related assemblies were folded under the drivers footwell. It was good and ugly. Not that the Legacy looks unscathed.
Like I said in the first post the only thing that truly matters is life and limb. Glad my three year old wasn't in the car, I probably wouldn't have been as cordial to the young man that hit the Legacy.
