I was rear-ended by some idiot while stopped at a Yield sign. My Volt sacrificed itself to keep me from getting injured or killed, which I really appreciate. But now my insurance company is wondering whether the car should be replaced or scrapped, and I was wondering what folks here think.
It's a 2012 model with about 24000 miles on it, probably has a bluebook value around $16k.
My feeling is that the rear end is where most of the batteries are, and batteries are hella expensive, so the repair cost will probably be too high. But currently the vehicle is at a dealer awaiting a teardown assessment of the damage.
Any opinions here about how repairable Volts are? I thought I heard that they tend to be quite fragile in a collision.
P.S. I am delighted to be alive and unharmed. Thank you, GM.
