47 days after getting rear-ended, and I'm still waiting for it to come back from the bodyshop. $9,600.00 plus damage. The first lift gate sent out by Chrysler has bent, and had to be sent back. The second lift gate was also bent, so a third was ordered. Heard that the parts were in the paint booth yesterday, so I've got my fingers crossed that we will have it as early as next week.
The low life who hit me, parked his car, and ran away was uninsured. I haven't heard if he had any charges against him. Luckily, my husband believes in low deductibles, so we only have to pay $100.00 out of pocket.
When I was hit, the Compass was pushed on the sidewalk. Guess this says alot for the safety built into the Compass. I just had slight pain in my neck and back.
We talked about trading in the Compass, but have decided to see what it drives like and looks like after we get it back.
The other day, my husband said, "Hey honey, didn't we used to own a Jeep?". It's been so long, I don't even remember what the inside looks like, or how it drives.
By the day, my loaner is a Chevy Impala. Reminds me why we drive a Jeep. Last Sunday we had 11" of snow. I wasn't even able to pull the Impala from in front of my house when I attempted to go to work that night. I ended up getting stuck, I couldn't even rock it back and forth, it just kept pushing the snow. I ended up having to have a tow truck come and pull me out. My roadside insurance from my insurance co. will only pay for the insured vehicle, so it cost me $80.00 and I was 4 & 1/2 hrs late to work.
Needless to say, all I want for Christmas is my Jeep back.
