Lexus ES 300h Diminished Value Claim in San Diego, California

Regarding our diminished value appraisal of a 2017 Lexus ES 300h 4 Door Sedan with 42,822 miles that was involved in a rear-end collision in August 2017 that caused $16,729.75 in damage. The vehicle was not disabled/towed and had structural damage.The claimant 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 is key.

We learned from these examples from sales managers at Lexus dealers in Southern California. Typically a Lexus dealer could not sell it unless it was at an auction-huge loss of value-you would lose 30-40%. Also, 30% loss off the book value maybe even more – the accident was severe and the cars integrity is compromised and hard sell and a liability for the dealer. And if you have that type of accident and damage, the buyers won’t buy it. The more high line of the car the more of a loss it will take.

The opinions of unbiased experts form the basis for the most comprehensive Auto Diminished Value Appraisal available.

We contacted several Lexus dealers in Southern California in order 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 damage to structural components and no air bag deployment. Repair cost $16,729.75. LKQ (used) and/or aftermarket parts were not utilized in the repair/not factored in to the diminished value.
