Did the airbags deploy? Thats usually a total if they did and I can't see how they wouldn't have gone off. Even if they didn't I would say totaled.

How TF can that not be totaled?
I'd be REAL surprised if it isn't.
Glad you're OK.

Surprisingly the air bags did not deploy, since most of the load was on the grill/headlights/hood area, the bumper didn’t take the direct hit.

I spoke with Allstate today, luckily my dashboard sustained pretty bad fracturing across the top, even still the aren’t able to total it yet. Guy says they’re very close to the threshold, they need to pull the hood and fenders to inspect the engine. He says with engine damage he can total it. I noticed today the throttle body is facing upward which mean the intake manifold ( being plastic ) is probably broken, fingers crossed!!

Yes! They totaled it. Got the car stripped and found a bent belt tensioner, shredded belt, cracked TB, broken intake manifold, smashed air intake, broken passenger motor mount, mass airflow sensor harness was cut.

Im relieved to say the least.
