I’m really sorry to hear that. I assume you don’t have any idea how much insurance will put towards your new car? I hope everything works out and I’m sending positive vibes your way.

Glad you all are okay.  Insurance will hopefully cover a good bit, but it still sucks having to get a new car unexpectedly.  I’ve heard that winter is a good time to score deals on new cars, so you have that going for you 🙂

Boo that sucks!

Last summer my 10 year old car was totaled as well.  I was stopped at a stoplight and some jacka$$ rear ended the line of stopped cars.  I was in the middle of the group and got smushed on both ends.  Luckily no one was seriously hurt, but the idiot who caused the thing did a hit and run (don’t know HOW his car was still functional).

I loved that car and it was still running like new. 🙁  Anyway, life goes on and at the end of the day it’s just a car.  I hope you are ok!

Oh i am so sorry to hear that. But glad everyone is ok. Car shopping sucks! Especially around the holidays because it means the registration is due around holidays. We got hit by a drunk driver on drugs 3 years ago and it totaled my 6 month old car. Had to buy a new 1 2 weeks before Christmas. Sucks!

@bmo88:  I know just how you feel.  I cried looking at my sweet car, not thinking about the money, just because I loved it and took such good care of it and then all in one moment someone ruined it.  So sad thinking of it getting carted off to a junk yard somewhere. 

Somehow it’s hard to think of your car as an inanimate object when it’s been a  part of your life for so long.

I’m very sorry to hear that. I just totaled mine two days ago. I’m still kind of shaken up. I live at the bottom of a mountain. As I was driving a huge rock fell right in front of me while I was driving. This mountain is known for that. It was unavoidable. I’m pretty bummed but thankful to be alive. That mountain is no joke. I call it the death defying mountain.
