How do I know if my car is totaled?
A considered to be totaled if the repairs to fix the car outweighs the value of the car by 70% or more. There are a few tricks mechanics use to tell whether or not your car is totaled:
- Age: If you are driving an older car, the value of your car will go down. If you have an older car, it will be more difficult for the mechanic to get the correct part, making it more expensive to fix the car. The age devalues your car, but makes it more expensive for the parts.
- Condition: If the car has been crushed from the back, and there is no way to go about fixing it, you car may be considered totaled. For example, if you got rear ended in your 1995 Honda Civic, but the damage done to the bumper is more than the car’s worth, it is considered totaled.
