Q: Q: Is my car totaled?

asked by on

I was involved in a rear ended accident and my car hood was all bent but the engine was running fine and car was drivable. Is it a total loss or will insurance fix it.

My car has 56000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, Depending on the blue book value of the car relative to the cost to repair the car, the insurance companies may or may not total the vehicle. In your case, replacing the hood should not be too expensive such that the insurance company would total the vehicle.
