Not that it warrants the price, but that was a Beetle "Final Edition" and a quick search for used ones showed them in the high $30k range (which is insane)
At that point, I’d rather go visit family down south and snag a 200k mile toyota that is rust free for a few thousand and rock it out until the dust settles and used cars go back to way below new car prices!When is this madness going to end ? So I randomly came across the same car as mine, used. Same mileage and options...Listed for...32K, I paid under 23K for an new one with zero APR almost two years ago. This is really bad if you need a car right now. They want 41K for a MK8 GTI now....No S trims to be found, forget about a new GLI.
Interesting. My b-i-l had his ford wrecked by someone. Insurance initially said it was totaled but after reviewing car market they decided to repair the Ford and give it a rebuilt title. I am assuming more rebuilt cars will show up for sale as before the rona they would just total it and write it off.YMMV, but just got our latest 6 month renewal bill - premiums up only $4 for 2 cars.
They can't (and didn't) do that. What an insurance company CAN do is write off the car and then let the prior owner buy it back as scrap with a branded title. The prior (now new) owner will have to do the repairs themselves, get it inspected and maybe (or maybe not) find an insurance company to cover them.He ended up with a branded title. I don’t believe he had a choice. And maybe it’s dependent by state?
