Praying someone can guide me in the right direction.
I have a 2015 Mazda CX-5 automatic engine (4 cylinders). I was traveling for the holidays 3 hours away when I hit a deer. Airbags didn’t go off but the front damage was pretty bad. Called cops and filed a claim and report. they felt we could drive the last 10 minutes of our trip to our destination. One of last bit of the drive we noticed the car started jerking like the gears weren’t taking. The car got towed to the shop.
Long story short my insurance the shops my car was sent to say it’s the transmission that’s messed up but that since there is no physical damage to it the repairs fall on me for the transmission. They can’t definitively say it is or isn’t related so insurance is going with it isn’t.
Now I can fight it and find someone that can connect the two or I go ahead and just made thw repairs on my dime.
I have timestamps on my Googlemap from the distance my car drove that day and I have credit card receipts from when we stopped to out gas in and get food. No way my car could drive 2.5 hours on a faulty transmission that can’t make it from one shop to the dealership.
