Rear Ended

Day 13 with our new 2017 Acadia resulted in being rear-ended by a Nissan. Now we need to wait for a few months for a new hatch, rear bumper, quarter panel, and all the electronics in the bumper.

Now we have a claim and the vehicle will depreciate... just like our previous one. No fault on our part in either case, but we lose money (thousands of dollars) in both cases

Re: Rear Ended

Any idea about the damage estimate? Why do you buy cars with targets painted on them??

Re: Rear Ended

A little over a year ago I had my 2009 Acadia rear-ended and the damage was enough that the rear bumper needed replacing but nothing more. As I recall, the cost of parts and labor for that came to about $925. The other guy's insurance had expired but my insurance company paid for my repairs.

Re: Rear Ended

I didn't see this before. Depending on the amount of damage and the amount of depreciation you can ask ask for a check for diminished value. I got a check for $700 on my 08 Equinox from the insurance company.

It looks like it will be over 10K in damage.

Re: Rear Ended

You wrote that it will take a few months for parts. Is the vehicle drive-able before repair? If not how is your transportation need being handled.

Re: Rear Ended

I don't understand such a delay. Parts should be readily available.
