I stopped for the red light and my 2011 golf was rear-ended by a drunken girl on 2013/08/17. The repair bill $7,563 was paid by Geico. (Both of us had Geico). I asked autoloss.com to prepare my diminished value report to get geico pay me the diminished value. After the adjuster ran a carfax check, I was shocked to find out it was in a prior accident in 2011 June. I purchased the car new with 1560 miles on it 2011 Sep. I called the dealership, then I was told it was a loaner car, and was parking on a street by a customer. Someone hit and run away from the spot, leaving some scratch to the car. The police came to make a report since it was a loaner. The repaint work was $405. VW dealer sold me a new car with accident and never disclose it to me! Now geico refuses to pay the diminished valueI took the car to several vw dealer, including carmax for appraisals. And I got offers around 8,500 to 10,000. I paid 21,000 full to buy this car and it was less than 2 year old at the time of the second accident. Geico adjuster refuses to pay me and wanted me to prove the value of my car between these two accident and saying that since I am still owning this car, I cannot prove the loss value on the car. I have no clue to what to prove since I already paid the amount to buy the car.
