My 2014 Corolla was rear ended on a freeway. KBB says that the going value for private party for my model is about $12k while trade in is between $9.5-10.5k. I took the car to a non-insurer-preferred body shop and Geico (the other party insurer) admitted full liability.
The cost for repairs is about $8k. The body shop is asserting that the car can be repaired but I was wondering if it is indeed so or am I better asking the insurance to total it. I don’t know much about cars but the list of repairs is pretty lengthy.
