Sorry to see this. My SVT is in the shop right now being repaired for damage from a suicidal deer but yours definitely involved a lot more damage. I sure hope you came out alright. Be well and take the rest of the day off. [cheers]

Totaled. Repair shop manager said he stopped writing estimate @ $16,000... he was about halfway done with it. [80?]

I was lucky. I was had just started to passed a car when I spotted my deer and started to slow down when she turned right and darted in front of me. I think I made contact at ~30 and just knocked her down. She got up and stumbled into the medium. I only needed the hood, grill and right headlight replaced plus the bumper repainted. My total repair bill will be about $3500 of which Geico is covering $1500.

I realize it still pretty fresh but what do you think you will move into next?

Well.... Not that anyone here missed me, but... I'm back in a Focus !!![driving]

The Fiesta you see pictured above was just totaled out by... you guessed it... Another FREAKING deer !!! (For the record, I've hit 3 deer in 4 years)…

That Fiesta was a great little car... 40+ mpg with lots of bells and whistles... but I'm really happy to be back in a Focus... The only thing missing on this black SE is heated seats... The Fiesta had 'em and I'm not sure I'll survive Indiana winter w/o... lol

I did some research... There is a question if they actually work... or rather, how well they work... All I know is, I've totaled 3 cars w/o them... So I figure... for $5, what the hell... I'll slap a set on !!!
