    Default Car Accident

    I was invloved in a car crash the other night and both airbags went off. I will try and up load a picture of the car. I am hearing that if the air bags go off then the car is a write off.

    Its a 56 placte vectra est 1.9cdti SRi, 69500 miles, no marks or dents on the body, full service history.

    Can anybody offer any advice.

    Kind Regards

    I would in my opinion say the car would be a write off looking at the damage in the photo.

    Airbag detonation is usually the main reason for writing a car off because of the expense in replacing them, and the electronic systems for them too.

    RIP....It's a write off. Looks like you need a whole new front end, once the airbags have been deployed its history.

    Just re read my comment and it probably came across a bit rude.

    So ill start again,

    Hope everyone was ok and im sorry to hear about your car.

    What exactly are you trying to find? Another Vec in general or something more specific?

    trying to find another one the same. It was a great car.

    The garage has picked it up at lunch time so awaiting a phone call as to what the damage is.

    Everyone is ok, just stiff and sore.

    Can't believe how much damage was done was only in second gear, just set off and then everyone slammed on and i went into the back of an audi a4.
