I was driving my son's 2000 volvo and we were rear ended in CA. The insurance company totaled the car even though it still runs fine; the rear lights and trunk were smashed. We have been fighting with the insurance co about value of car,and now salvage value. Any advice about salvage value?
Also where do I find info about the cost effectiveness of maintaining an older car versus getting a new/er one? My son changes the oil regularly and maintains it, but he lives in Hollywood and is getting advice from friends to get a newer car. I say he should keep this one as it is dependable.
