Rear ended a Pontiac G6 today.

Well we have been experiencing rolling black outs since Arthur rolled through. Light out on an on ramp to the bridge. She checked traffic and appeared to move out. I checked traffic and accelerated before looking ahead. Wham!! She was still there.

I took that black centre piece of plastic out and removed the left tow hook as it was loose. I could have reattached it but could slacken the nutts enough.

Jeep can sure take a hit. No injuries or airbags deployed. F#ckin sucks though.

Re: Rear ended a Pontiac G6 today.

Did your insurance company assess the damage to your Jeep before you started taking parts off of it?

I'm glad to hear no one was hurt...always the most important aspect of any accident.

Re: Rear ended a Pontiac G6 today.

500$ deductable. Nope no adjuster has contacted me yet. Took the parts off so they wouldn't fall off the vehicle while in use. Big delay on adjusters and collision work due to hurricane Arthur. Collision Center couldn't get me in until July 31st for their estimate.

Re: Rear ended a Pontiac G6 today.

Oh crap! You messed with AGENT99!!

As for the accident, its crazy to see how smashed up the rear end of their vehicle is. Limited damage to the JGC to. Glad to see it was a minor accident. The title made me think of a nasty smash up for the G6.

Re: Rear ended a Pontiac G6 today.

Just touched base with the driver. She is a little sore. "Joey the Jeep" have her a good shove. She said her friends think there may be structure damage to the car. Doesn't matter as insurance will figure it out. It's my first at fault claim so my premium won't change. I'll need a new lower valance and possibly a new body coloured bumper due to some stress damage that can't be seen in the pictures. My tow hook can be reattached easily enough. My small radiator has a nick in it but is not leaking. Some styrofoam backing and the black plastic piece I took out will need to be replaced. 99% of my damage is plastic and paint. Due to it being an insurance job they will go full out on it.

Re: Rear ended a Pontiac G6 today.

I slide into someone on a sheet of ice with my '11 GC and I had to replace the bumper. I paid out of pocket since i had a $1,000 ded. Best price on bumper was $725. My 2011 also got rear-ended by a van while I was seating at a red light. The impact pushed me into an older Jeep Liberty (with the tire on the back). That freakin tire on the back of the liberty took out my entire GC. It was above the bumper line so it went right thru and the airbags didn't even go off. $18,000 in damage and they fixed it, won't total it.

Re: Rear ended a Pontiac G6 today.

This too shall pass. But suggest you not speak with the other driver directly...let the insurance companies take care of things...
