Icon9 Opinion: Do you believe this will be a write-off?

Hi there,

Just got into an accident with my 2001 Prelude SE (63xxx mi) wondering about the odds of the insurance company writing it off next week during my appointment. Have a look!

Note: 100% cosmetic damage engine and radiator are untouched. Car runs fine, headlights are fine.

Thanks.
TheHighRoad

I doubt it will be a write off. id say less than 25% especially with that low of miles.

Not a write off


hood
bumper
2 headlights (your mounting clips are deff broken)
grill
paint

possibly the bumper support - and you radiator support may be tweaked, it'll be hard to tell until the new parts are on if things align up crooked

Did the Air Bags diploy? if not you should be golden just replace the Hood, Grille, Bumper possibly bumper lights, bumper support, radiator support. Would be a total of $3000-$4000 USD

The air bags did not deploy. Based on what everyone's saying, I hopefully can just pay my deductable and then be free of this mess. I did not want to lose this car!!

They won't. Unless there is frame damage that I don't see, they won't give money away willy nilly like that.
