The auto insurer got back to both myself and the dealership chrysler,they were not happy at all with the dealership and if they approve the repair which sounds like they will they want the dealership to swallow have the cost of the additional work because they missed such an expensive addition [ at least $1300 more] to the original claim that the car would have no doubt been written off.
The damage so far has reached $3000.00
Manitoba public insurance is politly telling me I have to stay with the Crhysler dealership so that they will have to pay half the cost of additional work.
The body shop manager and I have keep a good relationship through all of this and he has said that he is going to try and send my van across the street to the chevydealer to have them do the rear end work .
I would feel better at the chevy dealer ,because they have all the spec.s and technical bulletins for any changes or recalls of any sort that the other dealer would have any clue about.
The body shop manager has promised me that he will find out the history of the used axle tube that they are using to replace mine.
The reason I used the Crhrysler dealership was that the guy who caused my accident is the sales manager and I thought that if my vehicle was written off that maybe he could help me out with a better deal than usual.
As that turned out in the very beginning I was asking about a vehicle and he gave me his BEST price ,which was terrible. I had made one phone call to another dealership and hadn't even told my price yet and they were lower with there first offer,I seem to be getting the stick that is dirty at both ends from this dealership.
Oh well lessons learned, and I will ask about the rest of the vehicle components that were mentioned above.
Thanks for all the help so far
