They "totaled" my Insight in name because of repair costs. Mine is still perfectly functional though and has a regular title. I paid $500 to buy the car back. You can make back way more than $500 in parts alone. The Wheels fetch a good price, skirts, switches, computers, battery, transmission. And the aluminum is worth $300 if i remember correctly. And there are people who will buy up parts fast.

If my car ever completely dies, i'd like to strip it to the aluminum unibody and make a superlight track car or dunebuggy then enter it in the 24 hours of lemons.
