      Although I do not know the specifics of Mike's case, I think calling the insurance company a "rip off" might be a bit harsh. In their eyes, we are trying to justify an $8000 valuation for a 97 Geo Metro. You have to expect some push-back from them. They need to be educated. This is why I always insist calling my Force a Solectria, not Geo or Chevy, for insurance and registration purposes. It is like valuating a Tesla as a Lotus.

       What was the name of the "offensive" insurance company that tried to rip you off.   
      I'd like to avoid them with my business in the future.

      You also have the other insurance company to deal with if they are at fault and not a no fault state. Had this situation years ago and it was not a pleasant deal. You will likely have to fight against them trying to total the vehicle at geo market price based upon the vin#.

      You may need legal representation. Small claims court is another option if the other driver can pay.
