I took a nosedive into about 4 feet of water. Should I try to repair damage of have it totaled. Ins. Co. will do either option.

I feel better after reading your comment, thanks! The mechanic called and said he felt confidant there would be no future problems. He replaced the computer console, ripped out and replaced the flooring, etc. I know the Ins. Co will just repair.
in the floods here we had a lot of cars which drowned completely... after changing the computer the cars were all good once again and didn't have recurring problems. absolutely nothing to worry about. :)
The Ins. Co. paid their mechanic to repair the car. I talked with him, and he assures me the car will be fine!
Mary, that is good to know.
good news... all the best. :)
Yes, I'm worried about rust, too. AND mildew and mold! I do have a rental for about 25 more days, so I can take my time. Thanks.
Yes, it is a Honda Accord. I have taken such good care of this car. It only has 107,000 miles on it, too. I do love the car, but I'm concerned about having it repaired. Thanks so much.
Is the motor hydro locked? (id water get in engine) does it still run? If not id goto honda and have it replaced. Especially if you love it, honda will put new parts (engines too) vs. Repair shops.
The car is at the mechanic now. I haven't heard from him if water got into the engine, but I don't think so. It wasn't that deep in the water. My son-in-law says the computer, etc. is underneath the dash and he thinks that may be water damaged.
Thanks, Mark. I'd love to save my little are, I just don't want problems "down the road" from the water intrusion.
Hi you have a great little car did the engine stall when you hit the water does it still run. Most cars going into water is just like driving on the freeway in heavy rain. If it runs get to a good carwash and getter crud out keep your little gem. TC
