Great news, my Kodiaq has been approved for repair by the insurance and parts are ordered! I'm a bit surprised that insurance is repairing it as the estimated cost of the fixes have totaled to almost half of the market value of the car. Picking up a new (to me) car next Wednesday that'll be replacing my WRX. I think you guys will like it!

Who's doing your repairs? Someone put a tiny ding in tailgate of my kodiaq, thought it would be minor repair, repairer said need to replace complete tailgate. Do panel beaters not panelbeat anymore? Doesnt worry me rather have a new tailgate than a repaired one but its no wonder our insurance premiums are so high, just under 4K for a tiny ding !!

Not sure who in Tauranga is Škoda approved (to keep the 3/5yr and 12yr body warranty), but my Kodiaq is being fixed at Precision Autowerk in the North Shore. They're top notch according to the dealer and Škoda NZ

Give us a clue, what happened?
Had to make an evasive manoeuvre to avoid rear ending someone after a blind corner (3 lane underpass) but simply didn't do it quickly enough.

Interested to know whether the car reacted before you, ie forward emergency braking and all that jazz.

Car did not react. You'd think it would, seeing that I had ACC and Lane Assist on.

That looks horrific, glad you got out unscathed though.

I really hate to see such a new car looking so sorry for itself. I'm sure the repair will bring it back to its former glory.

Good effort though, it's not often you see both wings damaged without being accompanied by a significant frontal impact!

Hey Zachary that is bad luck mate. I am concerned the ACC didn't react.
Yes - very concerning. Will definitely be keeping an eye on whether it can see the car in front. I was going around a blind corner at a reasonable speed so the car momentarily lost track of the car in front.

Thanks mate, seeing on the brighter side! The repair should be good - the entire front end had paint protection film so the paint should be easy to match. No major structural damage I don't think, but suspension needs to be replaced as well as various body parts.

Picking up my new car tomorrow, replacing my Subaru WRX with a nicer daily.

Yeah mate feel for you. It could be worse you name could have been Smith or Warner. But I did smile when Lehmann says he is following the doctrine of the NZ team from now on.
