Update On Our Toyota Corolla

As I posted on August 1st, our Toyota Corolla got pounded by hail, including one piece that left a baseball sized dent, and others that took out both windshields, popped the glass out of the mirror shell, and left dents all over the car. We got the glass fixed right away, I don't know what that cost but figure it was in the hundreds of dollars. Yesterday we got the estimate of damage for all the dents. It maybe works out to a mere bag of shells for some but to me it was a pretty big bag of shells at: $ 5760.56 (not including the glass). Now I am debating if I should just take the cash, not get it fixed, and put the cash toward a new car.  Heck, the Corolla was only about 12.5 K when I bought it new! Tough decision.

By the way, if I get it fixed, it has been estimated it will take 14 days to repair it all!

All the best,
