GREAT description. You said "was" - and mentioned insurance adjuster - so care to share what the damage is?
Your grammar and lack of punctuation makes me
Hopefully no one was injured in the accident. Considering your fragment of a sentence Im guessing it was a total loss. When my GTI was totaled they compared KBB prices to ones that were being sold locally on Craigslist, autotrader, ect and they basically averaged the price. Considering the older passats arent very popular I doubt you would get the suggested price from KBB. I think around 3k sounds reasonable depending what your standards of perfect condition is.
