  • Gutted!

    Went for another test drive in an Astra VXR today at a Vauxhall dealer and fell in love with the car.
    I decided that i wanted the car but was going to go away for a few hours to do some Christmas shopping and sort some money out to put down a deposit.

    On the way to do my christmas shopping I came up to some traffic lights where the road has two lanes that bend round to the right, I was in the right hand lane.
    As I went round the bed a van driver decied to pull out from behind me into the left lane and overtake me, as he did this he decided he wanted to also overtake the car that was in the left lane so he pulled back out into the right lane hitting the front of my car in the process and pulling my bumper away from the passenger side wing and creasing the wing above the wheel arch.

    So this now means the will be no VXR in the next few days and im absolutely gutted!!

    Dont suppose anyway knows if Vauxhall with take a Part ex on a car thats damaged do they?

      If you explain to them what happened they may take the car and repair the damage through the van's insurance... that's what Peugeot did when I had an accident before picking up my new car with them... although that was a few years ago!

      The damage should be fixable, if not, you can still go and get your VXR with the cash they give you... if it's meant to be your car, it will still be there waiting for you when all this is sorted. Don't forget to tell the van's insurance company that you have now lost out on a car as you were about to part exchange... don't know if they will compensate you for it or not?

          they will still take the car, probably readjust how much they are going to offer you for it.

          I've taken some right nails in my time, i've offered someone £20 for their car on countless occasions so you can guess how nice those cars were!

            They will take your car as part exchange even with the damage but if they for example offered you 5k for your car and the damage would cost 1k to repair then they would offer you 4k. Depends whether you want to go through insurance or not, whiplash and lower back pains may set in the next few days
