Cops not calling back might have to lawyer up. Don't want it to slip through cracks

On their list... at the very bottom. Maybe you would have better luck if you took them donuts.

I think that's more because of the mass amount of police shootings over the last few years.

Keep harassing them. If the lawyer doesn't help, there's always another one around the corner. They are a dime a dozen after all.

Doesn't your insurance cover this? You have a location and license plate.

Guessing you only have liability insurance?

You're making this more confusing than it needs to be.

If the police report matches your post it could be the reason the Police don't want to call with someone freaking out over a Cobalt.

i have full coverage, they will charge me more for insurance if i use it, as far as i know. the insurance agent was on vaca until the 20th i'll have my wife call her and ask.

i talked to lawyer again today and he wants me to keep pressing the police, go to the chief if i have to. i tried to call the chief several times he just lets it go to voicemail. i don't like leaving voicemails id rather just talk to them.

bottom line is someone hit my car and they need to pay for it not me.

I finally got the guys insurance info. He's a really nice old man, can't hear at all. Worked with my dad at the Mill who knows how long ago etc etc...

He didn't know he hit the car. No biggie.

I've never had to deal with insurance before do I call his company or do I let my insurance people handle it?

Either. You can call his insurance and if they take care of it, you're good. If they put up a stink you can call your insurance, but you should be fine just calling his.

went to local body shop, they're writing up estimate.

i had him write down every little thing that could possible be caused by the hit and run. the exhaust is tweeked to the side, you can see on the exhaust tip where it was pressed against the bumper and now its push off to the side and it rattles.

the bumper gaps are slightly off, there is some other gaps by the drivers door and around the back little window that may or may not have been there before.

while we where looking at it, i noticed a small dent and two big rub marks THAT WERE NOT THERE A COUPLE DAYS AGO on the opposite side rear quarter. which means another person hit my car with their door or something and took off.

i'm so sick of stupid people, this is why i do not drive expensive new cars anymore. they just get ruined by **** tards and a lot of the time there is nothing you can do about it except constantly fix it yourself

Glad you got it sorted but man that sucks. Sounds like you need to move elsewhere, ive never had that many problems here with hit and runs and door dings.

took a while but got estimate from body shop. $1700 bucks.

started claim with insurance and they accepted liability. going to try and get a few bucks for diminished value. i have a friend who works at a car dealership and he wrote me up some docs with a trade in value for both wreck/no wreck.

~3500 no wreck and ~1500 with wreck on history

i'm going to press them for a better rental car they want to put me in one of those $20 a day **** boxes. maybe i can get a v6 camaro out of it or something.

Car goes into body shop Wednesday. I installed some 60lb injectors harness and tune today from zzp.

Runs better at idle and drivability is better doesn't seem any faster than the GM stg 2 tune.

I could go down to a 2.8 pulley from 3.0 on it now

canned tune? I wouldn't expect much. They're meant to work not peak performance.
