I purchased a 2014 Elentra Se for my daughter.
Naturally in gratitude, she had an accident three weeks later. Not even made a payment yet.
She was doing 25 mph, and got distracted, went up a curb, and took out a brick mailbox, and tapped a tree.
She's was ok, and the car gets towed to the bodyshop.
Damage to passenger side - bumper, fender, hood, plus the steering wheel airbag deployed. Just the damage one would expect, figuring 5-7K to fix.
Adjuster calls me today saying it was TOTALED !!!!!
Now the weird part, as to why.
Adjuster is claiming that if the airbag in this model Elentra deploys, they have to replace the car's ENTIRE wiring harness.
8K to do.
Has anyone heard of this?
I find it unbelievable.
