 An Electric Vehicle Owner Got Hit With A $42,000 Bill After A Minor Accident Because They…

A recent social media post detailing how much it would cost to fix one specific brand of an electric car would be enough to convince you not to buy one if you needed further justification.

This story concerns the Rivian electric pickup truck, produced by a popular startup company whose customers have been known to wait up to three or four years for delivery of their new vehicle.

The Rivian R1T has a base price of $73,000.

In a recent Facebook post in a Rivian group, Chris Apfelstadt shared his experience with getting his EV repaired after a minor fender-bender.

“In early February, I was rear-ended in my R1T,” he wrote in the April 29 post. “No airbags went off and the collision was at a relatively low speed.

“The other driver asked what kind of car I was driving, and my response was ‘the kind that is going to p*** off your insurance company!’”

He rushed to clarify that, at least according to him, he had only been cracking a joke. “We both laughed, and I told her about the brand,” Apfelstadt said.

But the joke turned out to be more prophetic than he knew.

The final repair bill totaled more than $42,000.

“I figured the repair would be expensive but had no idea,” Apfelstadt said.

The at-fault driver’s insurance company had estimated the damage to his Rivian at $1,600 and sent him a check for that amount.

But the repair work, done at a Rivian-certified body shop, turned out to be more involved than Apfelstadt or the insurance company anticipated.

“They were incredibly meticulous and detailed and completely disassembled the rear end of my truck to discover all of the damage,” he said in the post.

“They carefully documented every step with photographs to show the insurance company the process and It took over two and half months to finally get my truck back,” he said.

“They did an incredible job and my R1T looks as nice as the day it was shipped,” Apfelstadt said.

“I have heard that Rivian made some concessions in the repairability in order to keep the Aesthetics a certain way. All I know is that this is a very expensive vehicle to fix!”

“We are close,” he said.

“It feels good to have my truck back! It was almost like waiting for delivery all over again!”

Some people on social media were skeptical about the story.

One shared the story on Twitter, asking, “$42,000 repair for a dented rear bumper on a Rivian R1T?  Also, something doesn’t add up here, why did they remove the rear glass?”

Another Twitter user responded to the post, saying, “That is insane, insurance rates will skyrocket.”

The Twitter poster who questioned the charges agreed. “100%. That’s why it needs to be questioned now.”

“Repair shops have to follow [original equipment manufacturer] procedures to limit their liability. Blame the manufacturers,” he said.

“You can always find a shop to do it cheaper, doesn’t mean it’s done correctly. It may look great, but not done to manufacturers’ published repair manual. Done by the book costs $$$ and not just for EV.”

The woke agenda is being promoted everywhere.

Not only is it being promoted on television, and in movies, but that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Even the stores that we shop at are funding the very liberal, commie, woke agendas that we are doing our best to rail against.

Now, we have to deal with our meat being pumped full of this new mRNA junk!

So, there here are the three questions to ask before you shop:
What agendas, if any, is this company funding?
What narratives are being pushed by this company?
Do I trust that the products I’m buying are safe?
These corporate conglomerates have brainwashed us into thinking their products are the only products. And if they’re budget-friendly they must be all we can get.
This is categorically untrue.
There are safer, more affordable alternatives out there ?

We need to stop funding these woke companies and I have an amazing alternative for you.

The only “catch”?

It’s only by referral.

Good thing you know someone that can refer you and that is me.

They have everything that we are already buying.

Laundry detergent, hair care, skin care, vitamins, snacks, essential oils, candles, weight loss,  a complete baby line, discounts on health care, a security system, and even an identity protector for our online presence.
