Well folks, the day that every TREPID owner fears came for me today. I was in a car accident. I was side swipped by a 2000 FORD F-350. Guy ran a light and would never have been able to stop. Car held up amazingly compared to the beast that hit me. I was surprised the damn thing didn't roll over my car considering how tall the damn thing was compared to my Intrepid. Now, I dont know if I want to keep the car or send it to its grave. I really love my 2000 TREP. Dont want to see it go but I might have to depending on what the insurance company says. Well, maybe I can find a nice used 2000 R/T like I wanted from the beginning.

Hope non of you go through this with your cars. :( :mad: :(

Hope you are OK. Accidents really are crazy experiences... crap!

I just got back from the movies. I counted at least 6 different cars that must have had some really drunk people driving them. They were all over the road! I mean swerving into oncoming traffic....blowing through red lights. Man...I really didn't feel safe out there! Weekends suck around here man.

Glad you are ok.

Tell his ins. co that you will be ordering a 2002 R/T loaded and that they will pay for it. When they balk, you start to have neck and back pains.

Now the big choice, Black, White, or Silver.

Being that it's the other dudes fault, shouldn't the other dudes insurane pay for it?

But that wouldn't apply in this case, it was clearly the other person's fault. If the police report show's that, and if the insurance companies do go ahead and declare it no fault, I would sue.
