Re: Jeep SRT8 vs Hyundai Sonata

Sorry about this Quick. Best wishes in getting her back good as new.

I also had a less impactful run-in with a Sonata here:

Yea itís a Hemi, Wanna Race?

Re: Jeep SRT8 vs Hyundai Sonata

Wow sorry to hear Brian! Good to see Jeep held up and luckily no one or thing was severely hurt. Frame damage would've been a TKO, but judging from the pics, you should be back in no time! Saved the headlight too haha.

I too got cutoff two different times but the recent damage was from an elderly couple driving up 95 like they were late to Bingo. Slammed into my passenger side and threw me into the median! Luckily I didnt go airborne and into on coming highway traffic. But long story short, I wrecked my front drivers side body/suspension. Had to replace the LCA/halfshaft/tie rod/sway link/wheel/tire and some body work but shes almost back to good. Gotta say these jeeps are tanks though, saved me a few times!

GL w/ the fix, Im sure you'll be back in action in no time at all.

Re: Jeep SRT8 vs Hyundai Sonata

Okay, first reading the title, I was thinking why would you race a Sonata.. LOL

Sorry to see that, but glad no one was hurt. And man, the Jeep really did hold up! Won't hurt to also try and get money in there for depreciation after a wreck, always nice to get some extra $$$

Re: Jeep SRT8 vs Hyundai Sonata

Hope to see it back up and running soon. Glad to see no one was hurt and the Jeep held its own.

Re: Jeep SRT8 vs Hyundai Sonata

Thanks for the well wishes. Still not in the Jeep. No Eta either.

So...Tally is up to $8K in damage.
Engine cradle was ordered today.
Wonder if I can get them to drop a new motor to sit in the new engine cradle.

Re: Jeep SRT8 vs Hyundai Sonata

I've been in an accident with my WK and only have a small ding in the driver side quarter panel.

The other car, Ford Probe I think, had a totally smashed front bumper.

Nobody was hurt.......except the Ford.

What if she was a hot 24 year old that had just turned 24, 2 days before the accident and was shaken and distraught?


That's what I thought! LOL

Re: Jeep SRT8 vs Hyundai Sonata

I would have held her in my arms to comfort her and made sure she was ok.
