Well were do I go from here

Well had a sleeping driver hit my truck in a 2011 foucus. Still waiting on the insurance ajuster to look at but good guss it totaled. Trying to weigh my options if it is should get a beater and wait for the 2015's or just order a 2014?

Damn that sucks.

At least you're ok. As far as if they total it what to do next that's up to you. I'm not sure what I would do in your situation at all so I'm not help.

Wow, there isn't a lot of body damage considering how hard the impact was on the rear end. Hopefully the other driver wasn't hurt also.

For the vehicle to be totaled by the ins co, there has to be enough repair work to justify not writing a 50k check. Don't be surprised if they don't total it. Honestly, that is not a big repair, and they will probably fix it.

If they want to fix it make them use genuine ford parts. Don't let them use the aftermarket parts to fix it. You will have to argue with them and probably fight with them but it will be worth it in the end.

Agree. I was thinking that isn't a lot of damage really. If it bent the frame that might change things a little. Of course they could straighten that out too. Good luck!

Only ford parts will be used not risking voiding my 7 year bumper to bumper warranty. Im little worried about axle bearings and the break system now im pretty shure it brake fluid on the ground so the break system is open and will sitting exposed to the elemnts for who knows how long, b4 the insurance company's work this out.

For most insurance companies to call it totaled the repairs have to exceed 75-80% of retail value of the vehicle. I know having an accident sucks but from the looks of the pictures its probably far from that much damage. ike others have said thought make sure they use genuine ford parts.

I would agree in most cases but I recently saw photos of a 2011 F350 with damage very similar to this one that was totaled (there was some frame damage on that one though). To me it seems anymore that insurance companies would rather write the check and total the vehicle than fix it, I've seen a lot of rigs with what I would consider minor, repairable damage get totaled. It's a shame really.
OP is the axle bent or cracked at all, or did the impact just push it back?
