Was rear ended . Now it's time to decide if its worth fixing, or just driving till it dies. 164k and no major issues, but I have done a lot of interior cleaning and did most of my own repairs and maintenance.

Sorry, I just now saw your reply. I don't seem to be getting the e-mails I was before the new update. It damaged the bumper, rear panel and the trunk pan, body shops wanted 4500 but I just mounted a new bumper and whacked the trunk latch a few times and its good enough for me.

Yes, I was actually pissed when it happened, and wanted to just trash the car, but with it being my first car, and seeing how newer cars are harder to work on and this one is pretty easy. I decided to keep it and just replace the bumper and hammer the trunk area a bit. Sucks that the person didn't have insurance, but insurance would have totaled it anyway.

If I was not at fault and somebody did that to my car I would give them the estimate for the damages and demand they pay for it. If they refused I would take them to court, asking for the damages and court costs.

I would love to take them to court and make them pay for it. However, they didn't have insurance and I doubt they have enough money to pay for the damages. I would just hate to waste that time and money taking them to court and winning, yet not get any money since they may not have it.

Changed oil and discovered my rear transmission mount is shot. I knew the front was bad, but the rear is worse. Going to have some fun replacing both in a week or so.
