So I've spoken with both my and the other party's insurance adjusters. Looks like there's no way their repair estimates will be below salvage price(<80% market value). They say damage to the floor pan is the most expensive part of the repair. In addition, a salvage title voids the power train and battery warranties, so I won't be buying back the vehicle.

I don't think anyone will be interested- but just in case- the buyback price is $6688. If anyone wants to work out some way to buy it before insurance pays it off and auctions it to a junk yard, let me know ASAP.

I'd love to buy another RAV, but it just doesn't make financial sense for me to buy one and have to sell it in 6-12 months. So it looks like i'll be taking over a Leaf lease until my Model 3 arrives.

Someone who is up for an ambitious project might like to salvage the EV gear to retrofit another car. $6688 is a pretty good price, knowing that many DIY EV builders spend up to $20k just for the parts.

That project will remain only in my daydreams, for now.

Awesome!

I'd hate to see it go to a scrap yard.
