Been preparing the truck for sale for a few weeks. Don't need a truck anymore so I'll be getting something else.

BTW neither airbag deployed on impact.

Sorry to hear, doesn't look like it was too terrible. If you were planning on selling it anyway, then hopefully they'll total it for you and give you a good number - it's like selling it without having to deal with craigslist crazies

I don't think the value they'll put on the truck is what it's really worth. And besides, I love that truck. I'd much rather see it go to a new home rather than get parted out.

In jersey they can total it and allow you to keep it (re titled "salvage")

that may be an option if it's just sheet metal damage

My question. you saw the light turn yellow. Why weren't you already in the process of slowing down to stop for the red? It sounds like there were 3 cars in front of you. were you intending to run the yellow which probably would have turned red by the time you hit the intersection line? Assuming the first and maybe the second car would have blown through the yellow, did you think the third car would do the same?

Sorry to hear... and I was just coming in to post my report. Funny, I was thinking it was only a couple of years ago, but it was actually in 06. My truck is a 00 though. Even then I was kinda surprised they didn't total it.

^^ Atleast GEICO & the shop were honest and upfront that they were replacing your parts with used (LKQ) and generic aftermarket. Had the estimate been written for new, genuine Nissan Parts, the number would have been way different. I'm not anti-aftermarket, but I've seen some real garbage in my time, which is why I prefer OEM parts whenever possible.

Yeah, honestly I couldn't tell the difference but being that the truck was already 5 years old and 3 body styles behind the current gen I pretty much expected it. I honestly didn't mind so much since it was mostly cosmetic parts. I was mostly just happy to be getting my truck back and not end up being saddled with a new car note or forced into buying a vehicle that I wasn't as happy with.
