    Loss of Use and Diminished Value claims with Model 3?

    Not a slam dunk but if we are talking about the value of substitute then that should be a pretty fair method. And just got word today that some parts for mine is delayed till end of August cause backorder or whatever..:eek: not surprised tho

    Loss of Use and Diminished Value claims with Model 3?

    For Texas the max limit for small claim won't change to $20K till September 2020, but not a big issue since the statue of limitation is at least 2 years, and it will still be well within the limitation if I needed to wait for the limit change. Both Texas state law and case law supported DV and...

    Loss of Use and Diminished Value claims with Model 3?

    Small claims is a good idea, right now Texas limit for small claims is $10K and changing to $20K next year. Hopefully the DV+LoU combined won't be significantly more than that if the other insurance try to BS(not sure if I can submit one case for LoU and one case for DV if the combined value is...

    Loss of Use and Diminished Value claims with Model 3?

    Yes, all the ones I picked have been rented at least 5+ times, and the average of 5 Model 3s in local city should be fair enough. Did you started on the LoU claim while your car was still in the shop or after the repair was finished? How many days of LoU did they pay you? btw love the Cartman...

    Loss of Use and Diminished Value claims with Model 3?

    Thank you for the information. Do you mind PMing some more information about your appraisal services or previous cases? I am in Houston which is only a few hours drive from Dallas, and some others I talked to doesn't have much experience in Teslas, which is a little different from typical...

    Loss of Use and Diminished Value claims with Model 3?

    As of now, the repair estimate is $16K, this is a more in-depth estimate provided by a certified Tesla repair shop that is highly rated in the Houston area, so it should be fairly accurate. There will be repairs across the entire passenger side of vehicle, major repair in front, and minor in the...

    Model 3 - Resale value

    He made a lot of claims....but Telsa being appreciating asset is probably still one of the most untrue claims among all.

    Loss of Use and Diminished Value claims with Model 3?

    Got hit by another driver about two weeks ago, now the damage assessment part is over (for now), I am more focused on the insurance claim aspects regarding Loss of Use and Diminished Value, and felt it maybe more beneficial to open a new thread dedicating to the claims part. For old post...

    Got hit by another car, how bad is this kind of damage?

    Got the Tesla shop estimate, $16K, but not happy with how they are spending 8 labor hours on trying to fix the pillar bent but not replacing the part. Considering the metal fatigue the piece won't be the same for sure.

    Got hit by another car, how bad is this kind of damage?

    True, diminished value will be a big one. $10 dollar a day or so difference on the loss of use, even with 2-3 months it's only a few hundred bucks. Since my A-pillar bottom (mild steel) is bent and the catalog does offer replacement panel sections, I won't accept bending it back (told shop to...

    Got hit by another car, how bad is this kind of damage?

    I will be ok with $80 a day too, that's reasonably close to the Turo after discount Model 3 rate in my area, since the whole loss of use claim is based on a similar vehicle, I feel something like that would be similar enough, but IF they try to low ball with 'oh we are limited to $30 per day...

    Got hit by another car, how bad is this kind of damage?

    What kind of damage did your car suffer? And as for the loss of use, were u basing on local Turo or other rate?
