I think my daughter would put me on a time out.

    Haha yeh that isn't the first joke I have heard regarding the dealer.

    From the start this has been a cluster F
    My b.f's friends transmission shop was no more than 2 miles away during the process of my b.f. debating with the police about him wanting the car taken there.
    And since it was drizzling out him wanting the windows up on the car before they left so that any further damage was done to the car, the wrecker driver told him he didn't have my key fob and pointed to a cop saying he had it.
    Then he took off with my CTS and had the key fob all along.

    And now they are delaying the process to get more storage fee's because they wont allow the adjuster into the yard without me signing a waiver allowing them access to my car.
    It is a whole racket with the town and towing company.

    My b.f. just wanted to look out for me and make sure the interior stayed in as best condition as possible so that the condition of the car could be rated as high as possible.

    He made sure to get in to my head that the car was totaled and I wouldn't want it after it was fixed if fixing it was possible.
    The car did start leaking fluids after the treatment from the wrecker.

    Right now I am sitting in the doctors office to have my neck and shoulder looked at, over night my black & blue marks got worse from the seat belt on my chest and pelvis.


    I do have 1 question coming your way since you offered.

    ----------

    And regarding my father right now he is getting the silent treatment from me.
    He still hasn't learned his lesson and is still riding peoples ass's in his crappy truck.

    ....and we assume that the ******* who caused the whole thing continued on his merry way with no idea what he had caused behind him. :-(

    The driver that caused the accident was issued a Reckless driving ticket 5 points and $200 fine but in Jersey you can plead it down to driving in an unsafe manner with 0 points and a $400 fine which you can use 2 times in 3 years and do without a lawyer.

    And from what the cop told me today that visually witnessed the accident my Dad is getting a ticket for something mailed to him.

    CTSCHICK - Sorry to hear about the accident you had with your CTS. Glad to hear you and everyone involved were not badly injured.
    Wishing you much better days ahead. Good luck in your search for the new/replacement car.

    Yeah and you don't even have to be in an accident with a Jag, they can just spontaneously combust!

    Los Angeles (CNN) -- Comic actor Dick Van Dyke and his wife escaped unhurt when their car caught fire on a Los Angeles-area highway, California state police said Monday.
    Good Samaritans helped the 87-year-old Van Dyke and his wife, Arlene, from his Jaguar after he pulled the car over to the side of the Ventura Freeway in Calabasas, California Highway Patrol spokesman Saul Gomez said. The fire occurred about 2 p.m. Monday, Gomez said.
    Arlene Van Dyke posted video online of the burned-out car and the actor talking with police.

    Wow. Just read this, and I am glad everyone is well. Sore, but well. This is heartbreaking in that you pretty much have everything repaired and in order after all of your trials and tribulations and bull-puckey.

    Good luck with the ordeal about to follow with insurance, etc. And let us know what is happening in your life, so please stay in touch.

    I might still be around because I am considering leasing a CTS or ATS Sport or Premium.

    The 2014 Chevy SS isn't no where near showing up at dealers or even available for order yet.

    Nothing else available right now appeals to me and I have to make up my mind by next week.

    It would be nice if there was any loyalty incentives right now instead of them just having conquest incentives.
