    I'm surprised State Farm didn't try to total your vehicle out. They're infamous for that...

    I'd have settled for that. Would have bought  it back for half of what what they paid, had it fixed with half of what was left, then enjoyed funsies with the remaining.

    As do most auto insurance carriers, top of the list is Progressive.

    They tried that when some trophy wife in a Mercedes was texting and rear-ended me in the wife’s old Lexus.  They mailed me a check for $3500.  I called them and said “You try to find a 9 year old ES350 with only 52,000 miles in this kind of shape for $3500.”  They ended up fixing it.

    Yep. I fought with them for 5 weeks over my Mercedes which was T-boned in 2011. They tried REALLY hard to total it, but they finally saw it my way and fixed it. I told them straight up at the beginning, that I wasn't interested in ripping them off, or making money at their expense, I just wanted my car fixed. The body shop guy told me a story of a Volvo that had an $1,800 repair bill that SF totaled and paid out $3,600 on. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? No wonder insurance premiums are so high with stupidity like this...
