turbo4tampon  : (22 October 2014 - 04:31 PM) if you run a track bar similar to a 4 link on your lantra to your lower control arms attach it to the subframe underneath the rad area it will improve traction off the line and in corners darknights has somthing similar for the civic but they can be built for under $100 launch at any rpm and the car stays planted

If you're in an accident, but only do minor damage to the front of your car, but the air bags the car considered totaled regardless?

This didnt happen to my car. I was j/w

I don't think so, because airbags are designed to be replaced. However, that's probably down to the insurance assessor.

In Australia at least, It's deemed a regular or repairable write off if the shop repairs are worth more than the car, and a statuary write off if the structure has been compromised.

its totaled if the insurance company can save money by just paying you what the car is worth instead of fixing

For an 02 accent I'm guessing the answer will be "yes" because the value of the car will be < the cost to replace both bags and fix the front end of the car after you rearend somebody.

Then you buy it back from the ins. co. for a few hundred bucks, don't replace the airbags, replace the bumper and keep driving it. That's what one of the guys at my old job did, anyway.
