So I moved out to CA June 2019 and shortly thereafter sold my RS in September with a little over 6000 miles on the clock. Lots of goodies, meticulously cared for as a weekend car... Guess the guy who bought it flipped it and parted out the goodies (to be expected) but made quite a bit of money off it--no issues there either. They sold it from their used car lot at over 7000 miles or so after 4 months, and the car didn't even live to 10000 miles. It bit it in 7 months since I sold it. Got a letter today in the mail about an auction, long story short I have no idea how they totaled it. The damage looks bizarre, maybe it got rear-ended into another car?

Here's the listing, I was willing to pay for the photos.

Never hoped to join the forum so I could add to this page but on the way home yesterday during rush hour, traffic came to a complete stop and the guy behind me wasnt paying attention and hit me at about 70 I saw him not slowing down and managed to point my car into the gore area and spun around a few times and somehow went around stopped cars without hitting anyone else and ended up in the middle of the freeway. Nobody was injured but he definitely totaled my 2017 Focus RS with 27k miles and that feels horrible the car didn’t deserve it. View attachment 341039

I feel your pain!

At least it was not a FreightLiner (for you).

I hate People who does not pay attention to the road!

Has this been on the forum before? Graphics look vaguely familiar.

I looked through but didn't see anything. I also briefly checked the NB thread since that's where the graphics are normally shown.

For future reference the car and pictures were listed on the IAAI website for free.

Happened on May 22 while going to grab some food. Doing ~60mph and a deer came out of the field. Brembos got me down to 35 with what little time I had. Deer jumped and kicked the headlight area then planted its a** in the windshield. Damage came to about $9000 and the deer ran off. Needless to say I did not get food that night...😞

Was it totaled?!
Thankfully no. I would have thought it could have been totaled due to the roof damage but the shop I brought it to said that it's actually not a hard repair. Would have sucked because I've only had it for 2 months and wasn't planning on car shopping again so soon. At least I'm upgrading the windshield to one without the rain sensor nonsense now. Should get it back in a couple weeks.
