Stealing from a special needs family: update 1

I went and saw the van at the dealership.  I not in a very good mood at the moment as things aren’t looking very good.

I had this all written earlier and WordPress crashed now I have to do this again. So this will be short and sweet. 

Basically,  the repairs to the van are over $2,000 at this point and may or may not increase from there.  Once they get the van started and into the bay,  they’ll have a final number for us.

So far this is what needs done:

All the doors need disassembled and the locks replaced.

There is some body work that needs done.
Keyless entry needs completely replaced and the driver side keypad needs replaced or reprogrammed.

The ignition needs replaced.

Both car seats needs replaced.

Card needs cleaned because they destroyed the inside.

Unknown damage due to window being down with no way to put it up.  Snow now collects on the dash and passenger seat.

It appears at this point that the van may get totaled out.  While this may sound like a good thing,  I’m not so sure that it is.

The reality is that I would likely not even get enough to pay off the $2,200 is repairs from the work done right before Christmas.

Because of someone else’s actions,  we stand to likely lose the van,  be stuck without a car and end up actually owing money.

This is totally BS and I don’t remember ever being this ticked off.

I’ll probably need to start looking for a new van.  This is not something I needed to worry about….
