do you guys think this is totaled?

someone lost control from the lane next to me and came into my lane last second so nothing I could have done. i came out pretty okay other than sore wrist. still amazed how strong this car was built. i don't think there is anyway they'll try to fix this right? if you look close in the 1st/interior picture, the front frame is pushed back pretty far. i'll most likely get another gla45 after extensive research but we'll see. 3 month and gone

I'd say you walking away from the accident with only a sore wrist is a testament to fine German engineering, but we've come to learn the GLA is a collaboration of multi-national design bureaus, so to speak. Nonetheless, sincere condolences on the incident, best wishes for an equitable adjustment.

I agree with Turbolink. Glad you're ok. I would hope they total it for your sake. Looks like lots of frame damage that would cause a myriad of non stop issues in the years to come.

BTW, small consolation, but it's nice to see the "golden hills" of California looking so green.

Looks like Highway 4. Tough driving in the East Bay. Glad the car kept your injuries to a minimum. If the insurance company doesn't total it make sure you file for a diminished value compensation ... The incident will show u on CarFax and could affect resale value.

Good luck. Please keep us posted.

I am pretty sure it will be totaled especially with an airbag deployment. The airbags did the job of keeping you safe and that is all that counts.

yeah 3 airbags. If the car were older i would have been more confident that it'll be totaled but it's only 3 months old. it also makes me wonder if i'll get close to what i paid for since it's so new if it's considered totaled. i was on 680 around fremont.
