Take settlement? Repair or not?
The insurance company for the at-fault driver is offering to repair our 2005 Jaguar X-Type (22K miles). They'd pay the $7000 repair shop estimate to fix driver's side damages.
I'm concerned about whether the car will have any value as a trade-in after the repairs are made. The damages will be on any 'history' report. Before the accident the car had a retail value of about $14K.
