Yes after 3 ½ years & 99,000 miles of city driving my 2010 Soul, I got into a car accident.
I was just driving along a major road & my lane, most left of 3, was slowing up for a red signal & suddenly I notice the car behind me squealing & smoking tires coming at me. Imminent collision about to happen ! Traffic moved up a little gave me a chance to accelerate & move slightly to the center lane, She was fishtailing skidding but veered some to the middle lane when the contact was made. Felt like It collapsed the rear corner of the Soul. When I got out & checked on her & then finally saw the minimal damage I was relieved. She told me she was distracted & took total blame. She was on her way home from work, I was on my way to work. No police, just exchanged info. She had Progressive insurance & they made things very easy, cut me a check for $ 1077.00 & If actual repairs ran more than that they would pay the difference.
Here what 1000.00 looks like, adjuster did say some metal mounting flanges were bent
Her car was not too bad, maybe 1500.00 ?
