Wrecked Car and New Car

So Cam had an accident about a week ago (he wasn't hurt at all, thankfully)...it wasn't his fault, of course, but our car got most of the damage. Our little Hyundai Accent served us well!







Seeing as that was our one and only car, and we were told by several insurance reps that with the reported damage (and the value of the car) it is most probably totaled, we decided to go ahead and get a new car so that we had a way to get around again!

This is our (slightly used) 2007 Hyundai Elantra.







We're enjoying the new car, although of course we'd rather not have had such a reason to get one.

I'm so glad no one was hurt. Enjoy your new car, no matter what the reason for having to get it!

ooo shiny new Hyundai!

I've already told you, but I'm glad Cam wasn't hurt... and I hope everything gets sorted out with the insurance stuff really quickly (if it hasn't yet, since I'm kinda late seeing this post, lol)

Actually, the insurance guy just left a few minutes ago to estimate damage, lol, so hopefully it will all be sorted out soon now. Thanks! :-)

Oh! I'm glad no one was hurt! I did something similar in December and totaled my little Saturn. Now, I have a shiny new Focus. I know how you feel. My poor little car didn't deserve what I did to it, and I'm grateful that it gave up it's little life to save mine, but I am also enjoying the new car.... :)

Glad your not hurt.

I bought a 2007 Elantra last year and I love it. The interior is very upscale. In fact, your Elantra looks the spitting image of mine.

Wow. Looks like we were doing about the same thing at about the same time. Our Suburban was struck on the side in the rain by a woman who didn't stop at a stop sign. It was completely totalled. Our entire family was in it, including our four children, all younger than the age of three. Baby Jeremiah (6 months) and I were closest to the impact. We were completely unharmed, and in fact the inside of the door next to Jeremiah looked untouched, though when I got out of the car I was certain I was going to find the other car where Jeremiah was supposed to be. :(

We now have a replacement Suburban. Not quite as happy with it, but very happy to be alive and to have my children!
