Blam! Storm Totals My Honda Fit

A big rock tumbled down an embankment in front of my car (on Hwy. One just north of Stinson Beach) last week and pretty well demolished the motor. Knocked holes in oil pan and knocked engine off its mounts. (No injuries.) Total loss. Insurance covers it and AAA has been really good in processing the claim. So I'm looking at another Fit and also checking out the Subaru Crosstrek, and other small hatchbacks.

What a shame! Love my 2013 Fit (also love my Subaru, but it won't make you smile in the same way if you get one...)

Wow! Were you driving at the time? I'm so glad it didn't come through the windshield.

Bummer....

I've owned a couple of subies (still do - the current one is in it's 18th year) and I like them a lot, but they're spendy to repair/maintain unless you know a small-garage mechanic who is a subie specialist plus they don't get great mileage.

And 'Anonymous' obviously has no idea where you live, heh!
