Got my estimate for repairs

$2016.00 for hitting a simple tire in the road. Oh well I only pay $250
BTW the repair includes replacing ALL 3, YES THREE, radiators. The radiator itself, the auxialary radiator and the a/c condenser. Repairing the main front bumber cover and replacing it's bottom valance with painting to both parts and replacing the black air deflector attached to the radiators.

Yikes...guess that tire really did a number on the car lol. I'm assuming your insurance isn't going up because this was something that really couldn't be avoided?

Technically it COULD have been avoided but in my situation I couldn't avoid it. I assume my insurance wouldn't go up. I'm praying...

I sense insurance rising, since this will be a collision claim (basically an at fault accident) Should have lied to em and told them it was an animal, then it would have been a comp. claim. I went through this same hassle with my cavalier, and ended up paying for it the next 3 years. BASTARD INSURANCE

I know being a small car and going at highway speeds would definately cause damage, but after looking over everything and I mean everything front to back, I had no idea it would be near 2000. Everything lookd like it could have been snapped back together and a new radiator installed but there were a few extra parts I didn't realize were there such as the auxialary radiator. I thought it was just radiator and a/c condenser.

What's your insurance company? I deal with State Farm and after a speeding ticket(44 in a 25), an accident in which my car was totaled but I purchased back and repaired myself and also while my car was getting repaired my rental car was sideswiped in a walmart parking lot and now the incident with my Cobalt, my insurance has yet to go up.

I'm with american national property and casualty insurance. I'm guessing the accident wasn't your fault(IE you weren't issued a ticket), and the rental car would have been a comp. claim for you were not at fault(or you opted for insurance on the rental). I made two claims for hit and runs on my cavy and rates were never affected.

I guess you have a good insurance company if your rates have not increased.

The wife of my friend who backed into my SS in their driveway also has State Farm, and her insurance hasn't gone up any either. She has 2 other at-fault accidents in the past 3 years, also, not to mention quite a few speeding tickets. I've got Nationwide, with no accidents and 2 speeding tickets on my record (one 13 over and the other 16 over), my rates literally doubled...
