Totaled!

Post by hanzbe420 » Thu Sep 19, 2019 1:30 pm

My poor baby 850 turbo wagon! Paid 1100 in 2010, got into an accident yesterday. A truck pulled out in front of me, and I t-boned him. It was his fault. The volvo served me very good. And protected me in the crash! Both airbags went off and everything worked as it should. im very sad its gone, but I'm hoping i can get a new Volvo. Well a new to me used Volvo lol. Anyways. I will always remember this car had so much memories!

Glad you are okay. That is NOT going to buff out

It is sad when they die when they are still giving you the luxury, Porterhouse ride, at the ground beef price.

At least you are in good Volvo Heaven to get another one.

Oh man, this is sad!

A testimony of how safe these cars are though. The passenger safety cell looks to be intact.

I hope you will find another one soon enough.

If there is a potential insurance recovery involved I have generally found it ill-advised to accept the insurer's first offer.

. Thanks bro. Yes this car is a beast! I only had a few scratches from the airbag. Both passenger and driver side where intact, I was surprised on how crunched up the Volvo was. But I'm sure it was designed to crumple in like that. I should of took pictures of the truck. It also has to be toed away. Pretty sure it was totaled as well. I kinda wanted to see if my car still started for shits and giggles. I bet it would have lol. But yea the bro.
