@Renee: Ouch! Wishing you a speedy recovery!

@Lefeymw: If the car is totalled, insurance will only give the Kelly Blue Book price for the car. In my experience, that amount of money generally will only cover the cost of a down payment or buying a used car.

I hope everything works out for you. We encountered a similar issue while buying a house and planning a wedding. Everything was all lined up- and then Fiance car suddenly needed about 1,500-2,000 worth of work. Ouch.

At least neither of you were seriously injured!

If you end up with a new car, look into gap insurance. It’ll give you full reimbursement on your car’s original value. Very helpful while you’re still upside down on your loan vs the blue book value of your car. Obviously wouldn’t have helped you in this case, but always good to know the options out there…
