    Hmmm, wonder how this happened. Think it was a test drive
    gone terribly wrong, or did someone back into it? The whole
    thing seems a bit fishy. If it only costs $2,300 to $2,800
    to repair, as the dealer claims, why don’t they do it
    themselves? If it has a salvage title, why isn’t it being
    auctioned off from the insurance pool? From the pics it
    looks like the rocker panel is bent along with the damage
    to the door and both quarters. Think it’s worth $24,000+
    with a salvage title and no warranty?

    That is weird. I have to wonder if a "lot boy" or sales person took it
    out to see what it could do, and wrecked it.

    Or maybe the auto transporter was careless when it was unloaded from
    the truck. That happened once at the AMC dealer where I worked.

    It says that the ins. company purchased it. I can't see why they would
    have done that unless it was a total. Doesn't look like a total to me.

    I think that Chrysler will not warranty a savlage titled car, so that
    is probably why there is no warranty. Gonna be a tough sell for a new
    model with no track record yet for reliability.

    Something happened - "The seller ended this listing early
    because the item is no longer available for sale."

  4. The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer
    available for sale.

    It was locally advertised for sale - someone likely grabbed it.
    Looks like whatever hit the door pushed it sideways into a post or
    something. Almost looks like someone backed a towmotor into it???????
