But they gotta pay me

Doofus thinks the more numbers he throws out, the better his return is going to be: How do I know if my car value has dropped and how much it has dropped?

The moment you bought it, it dropped. But that’s almost another matter:

I bought a new car on June this year, and 2 weeks ago, an incident happened and the car was damaged pretty bad. The car has been fixed and now it looks like new. The incident is not my fault, and I believe it is cause by a defect of the car itself even if the maker, which is Honda, denied it. I probably need a lawyer to talk to them but that is another topic. Now as the car has been repaired once, how do I know if t he car value has dropped? and how much it has dropped. Is there any place I can take the car and evaluate how much its value is?

Update: The reason I am asking the questions is that I plan to ask Honda to pay for my financial damage, including the depreciation of the car, my rental car, my insurance deduction, and so on. I have specific numbers for all the others except the depreciation of the car. that is why I want to know if there is anyway to find out.

Um, you said Honda had already told you to go pound sand. So you’re going to fling a bunch of numbers at them and you expect them to change their mind?

You might want to spend some of your vast cash holdings on proving Honda is wrong. This is going to require legal and possibly engineering assistance; perhaps the best you can hope for is that hiring all these experts doesn’t exceed whatever fantasy value you put on it.

    If he had a leg to stand on he wouldn’t be looking for help at Y!A.

    In such an environment, people aren’t necessarily looking for correct answers; they may want answers that reinforce their own views.

    There was one person on there who spent several months demanding an answer to “Does God hate me because I’m a nudist?” At one point, I grumbled, “What God hates is lying, and none of us believe a word you say.” Didn’t shut her up, either.

    You have way more patience with the truly stupid people on Quora than I.
