Like a Very, Very Expensive Car Wash
We got our Matrix back from the body shop today. Because it had been damaged on both the front and back bumpers and had a lot of broken glass inside, it has been repainted and basically detailed on the inside. The dent someone put in the rear hatch door the week after we bought it is gone and the hubcap that fell off sometime in 2007 has been replaced. I'm eternally frustrated by having to drop a ton of money on auto repairs and then not being able to notice any appreciable difference in the car (replacing the danged tires last year for example). On the flip side, I'm delighted by our shiny rebuilt Matrix and am thinking it was $5,300 that State Farm spent well.
