While deployed my wife was in an accident with my 2016 DC SR5. The repair shop tells me the damages are about $19k. I tell USAA and the repair shop that that amount of damage sounds like it should be totaled and the repair shop assures me that most of the damage is just cosmetic. I picked my truck up from the repair shop on 22 September and they give me the list of all the work and I asked about frame damage and they once again tell me it was mostly all cosmetic. I got someone to pull the carfax for me the day I picked the truck up on 9/22 and it listed on 8/27 that there was an accident and it detailed a side swipe. USAA pays me about $1600 for diminished value on the truck. Fast forward to today when I look into trading the truck in on a new 2018. The dealership runs the carfax and tells me that there is structural damage listed on the carfax and they can't certify it, so they can only offer me $15k which they know I won't accept because it's an insult. Without the structural damage listed on the carfax the offer would have been $30K. So here's the kicker..... The carfax the dealership pulled showed that structural damage was reported with a date of 9/11. The carfax that was pulled on 9/22 (the day I picked up the car) doesn't list the structural damage. It looks like the repair shop back dated the structural damage after I picked up the truck. I would have never accepted the truck with structural damage and it lists in the carfax that the safety and reliability may be compromised. It looks like the shop didn't want to total the truck because they wanted the $19K from USAA. I'm not sure who to be more upset with USAA or the repair shop. Anybody got any ideas about where I can go from here. The diminished value amount was obviously a joke.
