Last week my mother unfortunately wrecked their 2018 Honda Accord due to a medical emergency. Thankfully she was not injured and has been recovering well. Yesterday I finally got a chance to look at the damage in person.

For some reason the body shop my father chose is being very slow and hasn’t written an estimate for it. We’re thinking somewhere in the 8-10k range. My father thinks it will be totaled because of all the electronics upfront + airbags but I’m unsure. It very might well be fixable.

Anyways, here’s the rental car we chose. It’s a 2020 Camry SE with 600 miles on it. Obviously we had a lot of choices, including about 17 Nissan Altima’s (Yuck) and a few Ford Fusions. We figured trying the Accords main rival could be interesting. Tried to get a nice red Volvo S60 they had but they wouldn’t give it up for $30/day policy :(

The funniest part about this rental is not having Push Start. I think they’ve had a vehicle equipped with it for the last 8 years, so that takes some getting used to.

So we should have an answer on the fate of the Accord soon. If it’s totaled shopping will be weird, given our state currently can’t sell vehicles.

They really liked the Accord and all the features it had but are thinking about switching it up. Anything from a CPO A4, GLI, new Sonata, who knows.
