It was on State Farm's list but I chose them since they are across the street from the Jeep dealership and work with them often.

Obviously wait for the report and if you are aiming for a total loss negotiate and delay the process if the repair cost is close to the value of the car.

No joke! He had plenty of time to stop had he been paying attention. Such a hassle and costing us money. His insurance rep told us today that they won't authorize us to get a rental since their client carried state minimum coverage and that since 4 cars were involved there might not be money left for us to recover. Joy.

If this were your ride, how comfortable would you be keeping it after repairs? I tow a 6000lb camper often during camping season.

Re: '14 Summit vs BMW 7 Series

Get your own company involved, if you have not done so already. They can go after the other dude's insurance for you. The other party's insurance is blowing smoke about "not be money left for you to recover", etc., and not paying for a rental to get you to accept their terms so they get off from paying. Your own policy protects you...that's what you pay the big bucks for!

Saw that you chose your own repair shop...that is within your right (In Cali for sure)...and I would get multiple estimates. IF I am wrong below with the others, go to a body shop and ask them who the "recommended" State Farm adjuster is...typically a 3rd party that will go to you/the vehicle and be able to write up the estimate with you there going OVER IT WITH HIM Get what I am saying? But...

Now that I have seen the recent 7 photos I might agree...going to need new tail-gate, rear bumper cover, w/ sensors?, full assembly (bolts, rivets, push clips, pins, screws etc...). Check frame, straighten as needed. New metal bumper it appears? Driver tails, rear step pad, inner cargo liner?, lower reflectors and any/all wiring needed. Driver exhaust tip, tube adjustments? New wheel (RF balanced), tire (x2 if you have over 20-25k miles)?, brake rotor/other related connections?, ABS/other sensors? Rear headrest airbags, suspension/sway/bracket/mounting/bushing components?, power-train/drive line component?, whole new driver quarter panel, lower driver side skirt, passenger driver door/fender issues?...with all aforementioned pieces being painted that were prior. Rear alignment after rear driver wheel/suspension/etc and entire vehicle has been sorted, then full alignment (especially if 4wd IMO).

Would Jeep then certify the install/work? May want to ask the dealer you use/bought it from, and would be nice to have if you own it, or for lease turn-in. What impact will it have on your title? I cannot remember the % required of repairs vs vehicle value to get a salvage title and/or replacement. But a repair of this size will cost well over $12-15K (IF done right and assuming the majority of the above is on the bid/needed)...just quick initial math without any searching,;based on my friends experiences, quotes I have received, parts purchased, along with similar-repairs made myself...guesstimate including parts (low-end) and labor (mid-to-high-end).

MY opinion: First, get your insurance involved and if needed they can subbrogate against State Farm! If you are going to keep the car (you own it/plan to, and this will have a sizable, adverse impact on your title), I would get the highest bid I could find that was certified by State Farm, but by the best 3rd party adjuster or your own Insurance carriers'...have them cut you a check...then buy the parts you want (if there is any to upgrade or want to change) or all OEM (at a fraction of the cost online), then have the best shop work with you on the install. They may even work with you on the parts if you can source them and that way the body shop gets more money overall, and would still make money on ay parts you don't source...not to forget the largest $$-maker, labor.

Keep us posted...if you feel like it is going to be bad for the future of your Jeep, make sure to play the game as they will want to get off as cheap as possible

All depends on the repair bid(s)...but if it is anything over $13k I would have a VERY hard time keeping the Jeep knowing it may never be the same...and is used for towing as you said! All depends on what happened to the rear driver wheel/hub/drive-line/joints/suspension etc as I was trying to think of everything above, but I would do everything I could to get a 15' upgrade or low-mileage like-kind used 14'.

People (most) are idiots and do not know how to drive. I have learned so much from my Dad and the multiple driving classes/getaways/instructional sessions/auto-cross/skid pad/AMG experience etc...along with driving some VERY capable cars, at high rates of speed, on amazing roads. At all times, I know who is around me, what kind of vehicle they are in and where I would go/what I would do given a sample situation (i.e. huge metal frame in middle-lane of freeway, going 80mph...cars in the fast and slow lanes, but nobody behind me = BRAKE, hard, in a straight line). I love learning the capabilities of my vehicles so I know that at any given moment I may be able to avoid stupidity...but unfortunately, as shown here, we are all one accident away from a totaled Jeep/life...but you are relatively unscathed and the Jeep could have been A LOT worse. Sorry again bro, heart goes out for you

Glad you didn't get a chance to meet my daughter... She works at the Vanderbilt ER. Cars can be fixed or replaced. I would replace that one from the picture. Good luck.

Re: '14 Summit vs BMW 7 Series

Curious as to what your total claim was? Mine was less damage , consisting of new bumper , left rear rim , left tail light , left exhaust , left quarter panel and the repair of the dent on the lift gate , grand total just under 14,000. Looking at the damage you had I was guessing it would be a write off , and if not I would guess close to the 20-25 mark.
