Its Friday, its the Vroom Room enjoy the cappuccino and biscotti, join the conversation.
We have experienced our own climate change bubble, from cold, to colder, snow, rain, brutal winds, while breaking decades old records. All in the space of 10 days.
Yes...its Black Friday...
Encouraging to see manufacturers "throttling up" for a strong month in November, next week we will see the results. We are especially focused on how the "premium economy" segment is developing.

Here is the Deal for today:
Way back in the day, really way back in the day...accidents were an issue and non issue on vehicles since it required a good amount of sleuthing to uncover accidents. Now with accident reports its common practice to have a comprehensive report with every used vehicle.
The providers of these reports always have enough fine print to protect their position (not all accidents are mentioned, one might appear at a later date). An accident report does not necessairily imply a clean accident free record.
In addition financial service providers that lease vehicles also to protect their positions want as much "background" on any vehicle they offer for sale.
Perhaps you could see this coming, now there are companies that do an inspection of vehicles with accidents on a report to establish the severity of the accident.
We are back to the age old "frame dammage" in an era where most vehicles no longer have a frame, they are uni body (one big shell) and the structural components are engineered to crumple, crush, while absorbing the energy of an impact. The passenger area of a vehicle is rigid, the front and rear are engineered to absorb energy to protect the passengers.
Keep in mind that every vehicle in a reasonable accident the front or rear has crumpled to abosorb energy and protect the passengers. The frames of the old days, are the crumple zones of today. How these crumple zones are repaired is crucial to uphold the integrity of the vehicle. Not just the measurements, but how they are repaired (in many cases they are stretched to comply with the measurements).
