OK I'v asked quite a few people and I have gotten alot of different answers. I have a 97' DX with a B18 swap. Soundz great right well, back in the beginning of march I got rear ended and caused some pretty exstensive damage (over 3500). Now I am running pretty short on cash & the insurance isn't going to pay up. The frame was undamaged but still none the less was in the wreck and now weaker. So should I try and keep saving to fix it or should I just sell it for what I can and get another??? Please let me know what you think i'm not quite sure what to do about this one!

Yea I wish they payed for it

Well the guy that hit me works at a hospital. I had no way to call the police and neither did he and I could get no one to pull over and help. I got a lawyer later on but after a month he dropped the case and said that it was to 50/50. Plus his insurance people are Assholes. So I am stuck where I am now!

I would keep it and fix it. You can buy all the parts to fix the rear end on ebay for a good price, then you can set aside a weekend to tear it down and rebuild it, then look for a quality paintjob thats also affordable.

i think you should fight it yourself or get a government lawyer ( something like that) they're free... and whenever you get rear ended it's like 90% of the time you'll win ( unless your just standing there for no reason...).... fight to the end and keep the case open at the insurance company cuz a lot of people say they hate it like that

Im gettin it fixed

Good news , thanks for all your opinions but I am now going to get it fixed. There is a career center near by and they are fixing it and painting it and the only thing that I have to pay for now is the bumper, trunk lid, and rear light and paint. Not bad at all compared to originally over 3500 worth of damage Huh!!!

i would still fight the insurance on it. your insurance company should fight it with you, unless fault is found to be 50/50, then you're screwed and each party goes their own way. but if you get rear-ended, normally the person hit isn't at fault unless they are on the side of the road (where parking & driving is prohibited that is - the shoulder of a highway for instance).

Good Choice, Go on-line and find parts for your Civic. Also try to find parts in your local area. You will be surprise on what you can find around your neck-of-the-wood...... :D
