R.I.P. Old Friend :-/

Well, I didn't quite make it to 220k miles . . . I know in my new member introduction, many were glad to see a Cobalt could pass 215k+ Miles . . . However, this morning on the way to work, I was Rear-ended, hard enough that the chain reaction from me being hit included 4 other cars in front of me.

She was a good car . . .I'm confident I would have gotten many more years . . . Im 99% sure it's totalled, She will be missed *sniffle*

Cosmetic damage. But it will be written off because of the high mileage. Time to hunt for a low mile 2010 SS.

How's your neck?

Im alright, My knees hit the dash, nice bruise on the inside of my knee. Thanks for asking Well the radiator is smashed I think . . . at least it was hissing, and leaking. It started back up and I moved it to the shoulder so . . .

The police wouldn't let me drive it, which I wasn't anyway. For what it's worth, I think I fixed that oil leak! heh.I kind of hope its written off, I've already started looking around for another car.

I actually see a 2003 Cavalier Z24 I like . . . Its still an Ecotec I believe. So, technically . .. Itll be a CavyBalt . . . lol

SS would be nice, but I cant drive a stick . . . I know, I know . . . A guy around the corner has a Maroon Cobalt that has the SS chromes, but I don't know if they make SS in Maroon. It might be like the package that comes with them thats not SS, I cant remember what its called . . . Ill check it out though . . . if its less than 5k I might get it, looks nice.

Sorry to see this, but good to hear the car protected you. You could probably buy the car back and part it out for more money if you have the space and time. Good luck on your next venture

Glad to hear you're ok...don't know what hit you and how fast either of you were going at impact but it looks like the passenger part of your car took it pretty well.
