Speaking of "crashes", I was rear ended last Friday at a stop light by a 2001 Honda Civic. Stelvio handled it well but still $2000 in damage, including a bent exhaust system.

Broke my heart :)
Oh no!! I am so sorry...I can imagine how u must feel...I hope they fix it fast and it is all a distant memory...glad u are ok!!! That’s what matters most

Keep us posted, I wonder how soon they can have this fixed

Bad news- but... no sheet metal damage? Amazing. Hope you are made whole again asap. Hard to be nice to the guy that was probably texting + hit you.

Don't forget a diminished value claim if your state allows it.

Great advice especially if reported and will show up on a Carfax- your best argument in favor of it.

Oh no, that's not good! Hope it's fixed soon. Fair play though, no damage to the metal by the looks of it and the Civic looks like it hit a brick wall!!

Never heard of a diminished value claim? Not sure we have that in California. Probably not, they screw us on everything else :)

I will ask my insurance company,

Have my 2018 for 2 weeks and in first glorious drive in the snow I got rear ended. Odd to baby a car like I have been and then BAM! First accident ever in 25 years driving. How’d the bumper replacement go in ened? I have tow hitch and somehow knew it’d come in handy (even if my neck hurts more).

Saw this: California is a diminished value state, which means you may be entitled to the diminished value of your vehicle after an auto accident. The statute of limitation on diminished value claims in California is 3 years, and California does have uninsured motorist coverage for diminished

I'm surprised you can keep that car on the road. You know, being upside-down and all. :cool:

Hope your neck feels better fast.
All ok, thanks. I think most of the damage was in the skid plate. The bumper on one side bulged a bit but popped right back in. Wondering if I’m gonna need the whole thing or just the skid plate. And if just skid plate I saw this option for a blacked out version/Nero package from Mopar.
