    It does work out well for us. He's a mechanic by trade and hobby. We're planning on buying a 1970 Mach 1 Mustang and fixing it up. I've always wanted one.

    I dated a guy with one, unfortunately he was not a fix-it kind of guy and he let it go to pot, sad really.

    accident report

    So here is the good news update.
    I do not have to go to the barracks and fill out a police report even though my husband called 911 to have the deer put down. Did I tell you guys he was trying to get up when I passed him 15 min after the accident?
    My insurance company was very cooperative and approved of my body shop choice. I just have to make an appt for an estimate. AND I only have a $250 deductible.
    Breathing easier now. Thanks everyone.

    Don't you hate car trouble?? My car is in the shop now having the computer programmed because the computer is not talking to the censors so I have a nonstop check engine light on when nothing is wrong. Grrr.. $100 for Nissan'a mistake that they will not recall!

    Our deductibly is $250 for all accidents. Only changed our premiums like $60 a year. I figured $60 extra dollars a year was worth saving $250 in the event of an accident. Maybe yours will be similar?

    So sorry you're going through this, but glad you have been hit by the good news fairy in it all and that no one was hurt, except the deer. I hit a deer one. County sheriff gave me a harvest tag for hit and my dad ate it in chili.

    If Brad or I were to get into an accident, we'd be able to swing the deductibly relatively easily, but if it were to total out our vehicle we'd be in a world of hurt. No money available for a payment, and no room in our credit for a new loan.

    DH's car came back 3.5 months after he put it in the shop, apparently the insurance company and the shop had trouble communicating.

    When we totaled the van I just bought a used highlander with the check we got for the van. I am sad daily I didn't suck it up and buy a new van. But 2 teenage drivers and new cars are not a good mix for a parent's stress level.

    the highlander has a "check tire pressure light" on the dashboard they can't get to go off, something about a sensor in one of the tires (they don't know which), not worth the money to replace it, I can see if a tire is flat.

    I've got the same tire pressure sensor problem with my car. The issue is that they are easily broken by clumsy mechanics changing tires ( dealership broke mine when I got new tires and they keep claiming they fixed it- liars. If I can't trust them about that then why would I trust them with the rest of the car. Keep your "free" oil changes). They (the sensors) are also touchy in cold weather.
