Ouch If your car is a "total loss" you should.

With a Limited Production vehicle, and such low miles, I'd want a new one for sure. The rebuilt one will never be right IMHO.

Hope you're alright otherwise.

GTO19, I'm assuming your OK
I'd fight for a new one, the problem youll run into is, on high cost vehicles they would rather spend $25,000 - $30,000 "fixing" than 45,000 replacement.
I can't remember what % of replacment cost it has to be before they total a vehicle, check with your Ins. agent they should know. Also hope some of the members might have some contacts.
Sugarland express just had his fixed from a accedent he might know.
GOOD LUCK Eric, but fight for replacment,side impacts usually have a bit of hard to see indirect damage. :(

If the bags didn't go off, you're probably up for a repair, total loss is usually when the repairs equal 80% of the replacement value.

Eric, glad to hear you're OK dude. Sorry to hear about the accident; especially since you had just completed the engine break-in period!

Sounds like a new truck is in order.
