Re: Sandy ... mom GAVE AWAY her damaged car :/ help analyze!

Of course the scrap yard will make a fortune. parts of that car are still perfectly fine with a bit of cleaning.

But it will never be functional as a whole car for more than the cost of a similar aged vehicle or even the downpayment on a reasonably priced new car.

That is kind of how I ended up with my 2012 Cruze. My 2000 Impala the whole control system for the traction and ABS was shot as well as some special valves. garages quoted me $3200 to rebuild the system... That is more than the KBB for that car by $1000 or more(it was a family car with over 100k on it and it was certainly well used And most of the miles where not highway miles at all as well as most of its life being in Connecticut so as with most New England cars odds are it had rust galore on the undercarriage.)
