2017 NEW Jeep GC - Destroyed

My brand new Jeep GC Overland (had it for approximately 3 months) was hit by a driver that ran a red light. I am injured, but with all my appendages and breathing...

Ouch. I'm curious how you're injured? Interesting your airbag didn't deploy. What kind of vehicle hit you?

I hope you recover quickly...

Re: 2017 NEW Jeep GC - Destroyed

I feel for you, and am glad you're OK. My wife and I bought a new Jaguar XJ-L in the beginning of 2012. It was a "retirement gift" to ourselves. We stored it in the winter, and it was in beautiful condition.......until last July.

Some "old geezer" had his head firmly up his azz, and didn't notice than my wife, and 3-4 others, had stopped for a red light. He DRILLED my wife from behind, and shoved her into the car in front of her. The poor car was mashed on both ends. (the air bag didn't deploy, either)

The repair estimate was a tad over $36,000. The insurance company totaled the car.............

Re: 2017 NEW Jeep GC - Destroyed

Glad to hear you are alive and kicking. I would venture to say that your Jeep is totaled. My wife and I were in a crazy accident last year and totaled my sister's 2014 Overland.

Glad you're ok, that's the most important thing.

That said my heart hurts looking at the pics.
