I was involved in a pretty serious 4 car pileup which thankfully had no serious injuries except for the vehicles. All 4 vehicles had to be towed. It's at the dealership having an estimate done. It is a 2006 Double Cab SR5 with 35000 miles and was in like new condition. The front impact was about 40+ mph full force and the second impact was to the rear at the same speed, no brakes/skid marks into the rear. Do you think the following sounds like it will be enough to total it?
Front grill/lights/fascia gone, radiator smashed, all hardware on front of engine smashed, engine pushed back and dropped slightly, hood crumpled, crumpled in front of both front doors where front of truck was pushed back and it buckled, doors had to be forcefully popped open. Not sure if steering wheel was pushed in or firewall pushed back but something changed as the key was very close to dash but I was still in a bit of shock to notice those details. Airbag deployed. Then a Dodge charger went up under the tail at 40+ mph so I don't know how much damage occured there.
I just can't see it being able to be repaired back to as reliable of condition as it was.
