I lucked out...big time.

New bumper, new hood, airbag and searbelt reset.

No engine, frame, or other vital component damage.

I was going northbound in the #2 (right lane) she was going southbound, she entered the left turn pocket. She either had a red light, or thought her green light was a green arrow and pulled right in front of me.

How long a wait for parts? Make sure you have them do a full 4 wheel alignment and frame check - just in case.

Update on the Pontiwreck.

Parts came in from Aussieland last week, body is all fixed up, they found some minor suspension damage which was also fixed. Frame is okay. Balanced and aligned okay. Just waiting for another part for the suspension and I'll get it back.

The problem was finding parts for it apparantly, GM had to special order and ship them from Aussieland.

Red face Sad

I don't know if you paid off your vehicle or not.... but it is a sad site when it comes to a wreck new vehicle. It happen to my brother and his Mazda RX-8 after a month of purchase! It hurts for the vehicle is new and already damaged. It's never the same again.

You can't even trade up with loss of value period after a wreck.

I have a G8 GT as well.


Since the vehicle is new and still be manufactured, parts are not difficult to come by.

Another update on the Pontiwreck....all the body parts are in and painted. I waited a little over a month and a half for the lower right control arm to apparantly be handbuilt from one piece of aluminum by Pontiac and shipped to us. Airbags and seatbelts reset, so now, please, for the love of God I should have it back next week, we hope.

WOW... that is sad. Oh and did any of you get the news about how the G8's are getting recalled for suspension? I had mine fixed yesterday, they replaced both ball joints and the boots.
