Sad, Sad Mazda 3 story

ok here is the story of my mazda 3.

First, i bought my 2005 winning blue hatchback on February 17, 2005. i researched this car for about a year before i decided to get it. It lived up to the research.. i LOVE this car. i drove the HELL out of it.. i put 7500 miles on the car in 2 months. Well, then one day going into town i got rear ended ... SOBBBBBBBBB ... 2month old car... i had JUST put the license plates on it. well, the crash happened in mid-April. and I AM STILL WAITING FOR MY DAMN CAR!!! i was SUPPOSE to get it last tuesday... then the auto body shop made some exuse up.. then it was suppose to be TODAY.. but the ABS light came on during their finally test drive and now its at the dealership.. and they have to order MORE parts for it! ARGH!!!!! I hate bosy shops and insurance companies!!! I went off on my body shop yesterday. and it better be right the FIRST time when i get it back .. cause after this long i could of built a NEW mazda 3 myself. :P lol just kidding but you get the point.

This is very frustrating.. so i thought i would vent... more frustrating because i was in the process of getting my stereo equipment for it when it crashed.. so now i have 2000 dollars in equipment just sitting in my room... waiting and waiting.
You all will see my car on here we its done (stereo included).
Stereo is gonna be off the hook. 2 Alpine 10" subs powered by JL Audio 250/1, 2 JL Audio 13.5" subs powered by 2 JL Audio 500/1. I'm making my own box for them.. and installing the deck in the glove compartment.

so anytime now would be nice to have the car back.. ARGH!

alright enough venting for now. thanks for reading :P if you do read this

That's a really long time to wait! I had $5,275 worth of damage and my whoole side had to be fixed and painted and I got my car back May 7th (Accident was April 22nd). What have you been driving around for this long?

Yeah, sounds fishy. Hope you know your exact mileage when you took the car in. Only took about a week for my car to get fixed.

Re: Sad, Sad Mazda 3 story

Yeah Thanks all!

Well, This body shop did an EXCELLENT job on my sisters Saturn when she got t-bone.... her car turned out GREAT and turn about 3-4 weeks... so my dad said.. just take it there... well.. what a WRONG move that was.

For the time being, i have been changing cars around with my parents, i either drive my dad's 03 silverado 2500 HD (gas hog), 99 saturn (POS, my 01 was much better), 02 oldsmobile intrigue... and if im extremely lucky (which is like once every other month.... my mom lets me drive her precious.... 02 corvette z06.... but like i said.. that doesnt happen to often) i also drive my best friends Explorer since it just sits in my yard while he is iraq. SO i always have a car to drive... which is lucky for me... but none as much fun as my mazda 3
