A Jeep Diminished Value Claim in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina

Each week we report on the most interesting and informative articles concerning auto diminished value claims. This article details the diminished value appraisal of a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4WD SUV with 10,234 miles that was involved in a rear collision that caused $70.57 (amount is correct) in damage. The vehicle was not disabled/towed, had no structural damage and no air bag deployment. The claimant hired an independent auto appraiser and made a third-party inherent auto diminished value claim for the vehicle’s loss in value. Once a car is repaired after a collision, it is worth less, often much less depending on the severity of the damage. Regardless of how well the repairer did his job, nobody will pay as much for a previously wrecked car as they would for an identical one that was never in an accident. Presenting a diminished value claim and following it through to a satisfactory conclusion is a daunting task for the average person. Obtaining a comprehensive Diminished Value Report from a North Carolina Licensed Auto Diminished Value Appraiser is key.

We learned from these examples from sales managers at Jeep dealerships in North Carolina- One dealer said that the repair amount is very low, but because of the Carfax they will stand to lose a little but no more than 10%. Another dealer asked for the VIN, called back and said the Carfax is showing the value as $40,000 so it will bring the value down to $30,000 in trade.

The unbiased opinions of six professional sales managers at recognized Jeep dealerships form the basis for the most comprehensive Auto Diminished Value Appraisal available. We obtain several of them to validate the diminished value report prepared by AUTODIMINISHEDVALUE.COM. This is what the car owner will experience in the real world.

The six dealers providing opinions regarding diminished value were given information specific to this vehicle including year, make, model, mileage, pre-accident condition, color, options, any other pertinent equipment, date of loss as well as the nature of the repaired damages and the manner in which the vehicle was repaired. Dealer opinions are based on personal knowledge and access to auction results. Dealers were advised that this vehicle was properly repaired.

We contacted several Jeep dealers in North Carolina to establish how these repairs and the resultant repair history would impact this vehicle’s Fair Market Value (FMV). Dealers were provided with an evaluation of the vehicle’s condition both prior and subsequent to repairs.

Description of damage: Non-disabling collision damages to the rear with no damage to structural components and no air bag deployment. Repair cost $70.57. LKQ (used) and/or aftermarket parts were not utilized in the repair/not factored in to the diminished value.

The average of six (6) deductions was 15.92%. This is the percentage of Diminished Value to be taken from the FMV at the time of loss.

We established that the above captioned vehicle had a Fair Market Value (Average Trade-In Value) of approximately $37,000.00 at the time of loss. The Diminished Value was $5,890.40
