Last week, my Tiguan got in a hit and run while it was parked on the street. Luckily, they found him and gave him a class 2 misdemeanor so now I am dealing with his insurance company.
My VW SEL 4Motion Tiguan is a 2012 that was in flawless condition. I bought it from a previous owner about three weeks ago (no joke haha) and it has give or take, 20,000 miles.
The repair shop already has up to $11,000 in damages and they told me they have not yet looked for internal damages (is this hidden damages? is that what they mean?). I purchased the car for around $23,000 but many websites say its worth around 24,000-25,000 with all its features.
I am hoping it’s totaled because of how many damages there are. Out of curiosity, does anyone know if my car would be considered totaled? The insurance has not told me much yet and I’m not 21 so I doubt I can get a rental car for the next month during repairs.
