Was on my way to a Yankee game a few weeks back and was rear ended on the Cross Bronx Expressway. A box truck hit us slowly... This truck hit the rear bumper and their was a mess to my car. Car is in the shop and all though it didn't look that bad there wa still @2500 bucks in damage!
On a good note my rental is a white jaguar XF.
How is the rental a Jag XF when the damaged car is an Impala?
Perhaps they had nothing else left. Last time I had a rental car, I had reserved a standard midsize and all they had left was a "luxury" MKT. It took a bit of talking, but I was able to get the MKT for the same price as what I had booked...
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
Insurance company covered for 35 bucks a day. They were going to give me a Chevy HHR and I said give me the the Jag for 10 bucks a day more. The rep at Enterprise said "Icant do that!" I said what can we do?? He said maybe 15 bucks and I came back with 12 and he went for 13 bucks extra a day. I drive a lot and had the car for 8 days and put @ 900 miles on the Jag. XF is a real nice car. My friend has a black one. Well balanced V8 rear wheel drive. I ran it up to @ 130 and it was very stable with a lot more left in it. On the highway it was averaging @ 24 mpg's too!!! Interior is beautiful with A/C vents that open and close upon starting and shutting off the car. The trans selector on the console does the same. with a dial in place of a shft. They sell for @ 55-65k when new but depreciate like a rock after a year or two. I would love to buy one but the maintence on them after warranty will kill you.
My SS is back now and reality has set in. I must say my SS has 130k miles on it and still runs and feels pretty damn strong!!!!
