    Here's some of the damage that was probably done when they tried to straighten up the inner fender body panel, that makes up the inside of the left-fender.

    Unsatisfactory. Unless that area was hidden by something, it should have been touched up as to not show any damage. If you were to sell the TB and that kind of damage was visible, good luck getting what you want for it. I'm glad this hopefully is being taken care of for you.

    That's my main concern. Once I saw that, I was like ... whooa! I wouldn't buy this vehicle if I saw it on a lot for sale.

    now you need to go after the insurance company for depretiated value since yuor truck now worthless on trade in or out right sale

    Well, my insurance policy doesn't cover the concept of depreciated value. I have to sue the woman that hit me, which I will do in the near future in small claims court, and that will be a big part of the case.

    I'm still waiting on this. Has it been three weeks or was it almost a month that I took it back into Vandergriff for them to fix this? I've lot count of time. The accident was November 13th, and it's now March 6 --- almost 4 months after the accident --- and I do not have my Trailblazer back from Vandergriff yet. Granted, they got it in December (if I remember correctly), but still they've had it for about 3 months now and it's not back to me yet. :-( Very disappointing.

    I finally got in touch with someone from Vandergriff on Friday who is going to try to take ownership of the problems that I brought up. I think that overall they're a good orginazation, but I think they must have just fallen behind the curve on this one due to some weird circumstances. Anyhow, hopefully it will all get resolved next week!
