That's what I'm getting at. I don't really know how insurance wants to value the car. But I think from what I've seen that low mileage 2012 ZL1s have been selling at/near/possibly below invoice on new ones. They seemed to have held a little value in this short term. So I'm saying, there shouldn't be that much difference between the insurance payout and the actual dealer cost on a new one. I mean if that dealer is going to drag his own name through the mud over $500 then that's his problem.

Yea, I'm thinking the dealer will probably have to give up just a couple of thousands more to get a new 12 or 13 ZL1 for the OP.

I caught the news feed. I had to have my sister in Philly record it and I watched it via Facetime on the phone. The story is even sadder when you can put a face to the victim.

See, aren't there dealers dropping 2013's to close to that?

I don't know, I'm trying to shut up about it and find the news story to watch.

Wow! Now they could easily get him a new 2012 or 2013 at the price. Hopefully they use that to determine the used car value amount.

After reading all of this I feel for you OP. I'm going through a similiar situation with a repair facility, but not to this extreme. I'm tight lipped on the situation until it plays out since lawyers are involved.

So the dealership has a 10K difference to make up between probably the insurance estimate to a new ZL1 correct? Why in the world would they drag this out for 10K? I bet they lose way more then 10k especially when ur dealership is on TV for negative publicity through the whole Northeast. Makes me wonder sometimes. Goodluck to the OP I stand behind you and hopefully this knucklehead who wrecked your ride gets prosecuted somehow someway.

Just basically confirmed what the OP stated only this time the dealer and state police's tunes are a little different.

The state police state they're reviewing to see what they can charge the service writer with.

The dealers son says that they're working with their insurance agency and "if everyone has some patience" they will make the OP whole (no expansion on that)

and that they fired the service writer.

One piece of info that I didn't see in the thread that was stated in the story is that the dealership flat out responded when asked by OP "how bad is it?" "we are NOT fixing this"

people pay a lot in some places. My dealer wanted to sell me a new 12 M6 Coupe for $53k in the summer of 2012. They couldnt get that for it and did a dealer trade to sell it. In ny i guess there not worth that much.

This sounds like a great injustice. Although, I agree that
there can be no substitute for the real thing (a 2012),
the dealership should be trying to do their best at making
things right for you the best that they can.
You trusted that GM dealership with something valuable to you,
and they broke that trust, that is very bad business practice.
It sounds like there is not a C5 member here who will not
stand behind you on this one.
