    Here's just some of what was fixed on the Trailblazer after the accident.

    - Left fender
    - Right fender fixed
    - New fan and fan clutch
    - Straightened the frame
    - Allignment
    - New AC condenser
    - Entire new front end including grill and all body pieces
    - New hood
    - lots of paint!
    - Steering rack.

    Over $8650

    KBB on this vehicle at time of accident was $9500. I probably could have gotten $10,250. So they paid 84% of the replacement Actial Cash Value on the vehicle.

    From what I understand, they start to look at totalling it aorund 70% or maybe 75% in Texas. So, they should have totalled it.

    Now, I'm just wondering what else will go wrong from the wreck? Shocks, springs, other suspension components, etc.

    We may just consider trading this in sometime soon and being done. Sad day.

    Thanks to posts like this, I had them look into the steering and it was leaking. I guess they fixed it already and just have to wait for payment from the insurance company before I can go pick it up.

    OH, by the way. Becuase it's been 4 months since the wreck, I have to get it inspected and get new registration sticker on it too. Have to try to get that done tomorrow/monday.

    Make sure that the insurance company is within hollaring distance once you have been driving it for awhile. You would be supprised what comes out of the woodwork once a "wrecked" vehicle gets repaired and starts being driven again.

    Thanks everyone. I go to pick it up today. I will keep the insurance appraiser and the shop's estimator' numbers in my speed dial, that's for sure.

    I'll post pics tonight or this weekend of the fishined repairs. It actually looks pretty good overall, hopefully we got all of the stuff worked out and it will not have any problems. As it sits now, it's almost a 7 year old SUV, so it's got some history and datedness to it, might not be a bad time to go ahead and sell it anyhow.

    I still can't believe that the wreck was over 4 months ago and this is still going on!

    Went to pick up the Trailblazer today. Darn the luck, there are more problems.

    1) The new bumper has a major spider-web crack. It's a reman, so it was probably a factory defect. They're going to get a new one delivered in the AM, hopefully. Turns out it was a renam from Best auto parts, somewhere in South Dallas.

    2) There was an incomplete job on the painting of the interior of the engine bay, with the damage noted previously.

    3) When the fan clutch was replaced, it looked like they scratched the fire out of the oil-filler engine piece. Turns out that was plastic, so no big deal afterall, can be buffed out.

    They're supposedly going to work on this job #1 so it should get done by tomorrow. I hope I can get home to pick it up before the long weekend.

    We were hoping to have this fixed and returned today, but I guess one day won't hurt. Will post photos of everything when it's all done including before and after photos.
