Refused to total it. Six months in the shop, twice the estimate and I sold it to the dealership that 'fixed' it.

It appears on both no airbag deployment. If deployed they both more than likely would of been totaled.

Nope, They didnt on that job.

Airbags deployed or not is not the deciding factor. I've Replaced hundreds of airbags and pre-tensioners (seat belt). Just like frame damage is repairable most of the time. (Alot of people incorrectly think that will total a vehicle also)
Its all about then numbers. The $amounts and the threshold each insurance company has is the deciding factor. Some insurance companies threshold may be 60% while others might be 75% or 80% or so. Throw in the "salvage value" (the price the vehicle will bring at insurance auction) for the vehicle and that can sometimes sway the decision one way or another.
Airbags can bring the price up quickly, and easily add an extra $1500-5000 + to an estimate, but that isnt much considering all the $1,000+ headlamps, hoods, hatches etc.
Anymore with all the $50k + vehicles out there, you can do a lot of work before you reach threshold. For $50k the threshold would be $32,500 for a 65% company....thats a lot of work.

Even if I blindly worshiped a particular brand like so many of you do, a child would know this test was a joke; like some have pointed out, it is over a year old and the new trucks are... well.... new. I only know that the Ram, for instance now has 900lb/ft of torque and standard with the Aisin. If they were really testing, each should have pulled the same trailer and not in traffic. Plus, who is going to buy a truck based purely on how quick it is up a particular hill. I think I heard one of the "testers" say a 7% grade is the maximum on a US road. I personally feel that the last real truck was a Diamond T; everyone after that is junk.

I was in Connecticut last fall and saw grades of 8% (at least according to the sign on the side of the road). I'd say that "tester" is all wet.

A quick google search shows interstates have 6% max, with 7% allowed in mountainous area with speed restricted to 60mph.

Other highways are a different story.

This was a normal "suburban" road in Connecticut (Hartford area). I guess those "testers" think we only take our trailers on the interstates!

You know what's really funny? I own a Furd!!! I was a die hard Ford guy until the 6.blow came out. I was going to buy one, but a lot of my friends did before me. They had a ton of problems and Ford wasn't helping them at all. At that point I decided I would never buy another Ford again. My screen name..... See photos below. You will figure out where it came from.




Here is a picture of my daily driver. It is 9 years old with 86,000 miles and tuned to 475 rwhp. I have had zero problems with the engine and trans. Really, the only problem I have had with it is the lifted front suspension. It is absolute garbage!
