    2018 Model X T-Boned - GEICO says repairable?! Details inside.

    correct. The 80% rule does not apply in this case, that formula backs in to them repairing it Based on todays conversation the “constructive total loss” formula is most likely. They have inquired with the “third party salvage companies” that provide a bid on the car as it sits. given how much...

    2018 Model X T-Boned - GEICO says repairable?! Details inside.

    Unfortunately “clearly at fault” is rarely 100% a lock. No insurance company (esp without me getting lawyers involved) will put up no fight, from my experience As such going through mine got the whole process started.

    2018 Model X T-Boned - GEICO says repairable?! Details inside.

    Have browsed many of the posts on TMC and some of the experiences many of had. Given the severity of the accident (wife was t-boned and is not at fault), I'm pretty much wanting/hoping for a total loss at this point. For the sake of simplicity, let's just say the car value is +/- $70,000...
