My 2013 Volt with 84,000 miles was totaled. However, the main car is in good shape, so batteries, doors, engine all are believed to be in good shape.

The damage is to the front hood, bumpers, radiators and front quarter panels.

Estimated repair cost at shop is $9,000. Value of car is $10,000 so insurance company totaled.

If someone wants to buy at auction for about $2800 call Copart Elgin,Il. 630-497-8343

Very sorry about your accident. My '13 had slightly more cost to repair than yours a few years ago and unfortunately was NOT totaled since it was still fairly new. It was a disaster afterwards with leaks and rattles and I had to sell it. LOVED that car, but you're better off saving yourself the aggravation. Good luck.

After getting the valuation papers from the insurance company, I found they are low balling the value of the car so the 75% threshold for totaling is easier to meet. Because of the high salvage value of the volt, they save money by totaling.

They use CCC One to get value of a car. They arbitrarily deducted $1,006 for condition. Check those valuation very closely.

My '13 volt had an expensive collision repair due to the ev module placed right behind right front bumper. If it was somewhere else, the repair would have been minor.

I will have a very clean black 2013 Chevy Volt for sale tomorrow. In CA, near the beach, so you can make a trip out of it. ;)
