This 1997 Dodge Durango suffered over $9500.00 initial damage from an accident. Unfortunately it suffered as much  or more damage from it's repairer and the insurance company that paid for the repairs . After many months of dealing with the repair shop and the insurer, the owners were finally offered a deal by the repairer. They purchased them a new vehicle at a discounted price and took their vehicle in as trade on the new vehicle. This has now left the consumer to deal with the amount of lost value they sustained in the transaction.  As has been routine during these issues of liability the repairer blames the insurer and the insurer  blames the repairer. The fact remains that the documentation from the repair shows  that both were substantially responsible for the loss in value and the poorly completed repairs to this vehicle.
