    this suzuki i now have is probably the most incredible vehicle i have ever owned . coming from someone who has a pinto and had a corolla that may not be saying much ,, i knew nothing about the cars when i jumped at the low price and bought it ,, i needed a ride right now ,, it cranked up cold and did not make a single noise so that sold me .. it had a check engine on ,, the seller told me that the ABS traction system light comes on from time to time ,, it does and goes out a few days later ,, i had oriellys check the check engine light and the codes were for bad crank sensor and bad cams sensors ,, i replaced all that and still the light will come on after driving a bit ,, i had a good friend who i could trust to fix things but he quit the mechanic business ,, i have not asked him for help yet .. i looked into a XL 7 website and every complaint by owners has been the electrical systems with these things .. i can see why .. this thing starts itself basically .. you just turn the key to start and let go and it continues to crank till it fires up ,, sometimes it does not fire up ,, i turn the key off then after a few more tries it fires up .. seatbelt and emergency brakes warning bells go off whenever they want to ,, some kind of noise continues in the rear of the car for about 30 seconds after i shut it off ..i would have no problem spending a few thousand bucks to fix most things if i could trust someone to do so ,, beats spending 10 grand or more for another corolla ,, as i say the suzuki drives incredible ,, runs fine when it runs ,, at the moment i have black tape all over the half dozen warning lights .. HA ,, it may stay that way ,,
    iv`e used up all my sick days at work .. can i call in dead ?

    iv`e never been one to fret over how my yard looks .. my neighbors left and right mow their lawns every week whether they need it or not .. about a month ago my neighbor on the left cut my yard while i was at work .. i did not think it was that bad .. i could still find my way to my mailbox .. it was the worst time to cut it .. right in the middle of a dry spell ,, anyway i let it get out of control again and with a bit of rain it had gotten about a foot high ,, the neighbor on the right has been lamenting that i have not been very sociable of late ,, fact is i have been deathly ill .. i dont think it was covid as i was only bedridden one day but i was very sick for over a week .. i`d do my 5 or 6 hours at the hardware store and come home and shut down ,, he would even bang on my backdoor but i would not respond ,, just leave me alone ..yesterday he finally caught me outside and ran over to check on me .. i told him i was fine .. just have been sick .. right now he is cutting my yard ,, i was in the shop tinkering with the suzuki but quit when i saw him .. i`m too sick to cut grass remember .. i`ve got good neighbors but it is because i am also a good neighbor ..

    cutting the grass in a drought is the worst thing you can do. not only does it take in dew but stores it for the roots. also keeps the soil cooler . my Saint Augustine is a ft tall and will stay that way until fall. i also dont rack leaves. i run my mower over it in spring and i've still got a green lawn .

    I cut my neighbors lawn once. Their mower was broke, and I asked please to let me be a good neighbor and cut it. Mine is a rider mower. It wasn't a big deal yo me, but it made a huge difference for them.

    Another time my neighbor on the other side cut my grass when my mower was waiting on parts.

    It's what neighbors do.

    well it`s been over a month since a person ran over my toyota and narrowly missed killing me and i have not heard a word from her or her insurance company .. it is my own fault that i am difficult to get hold of as i dont have a working phone sort of .. it only works when my internet is on .. but im` sure they have my mailing address and perhaps even my email .. i have not made a copy of the accident report as i dont know how to .. you have to scan something with a cell phone and send it to a printer somewhere .. i dont have that ,, i am going to stop by my insurance provider and see what they say or can do even though they are not responsible to do so ,, there were 2 eyewitness recordings of the event but i dont know how to get copies of them ,, the state trooper saw the citizen videos ,, it aint a real big deal but if someone owes me 5 or 6 grand for destroying my car i need to collect .. i did not have the towing company bring my car to my home .. they have sold it to pay for storage .. it was not fixable anyway but it was still my car ,, stupid me ,,,

    Go to your public library. They can help. The insurance company might also.

    From a quick Google search,
    "Under Alabama law, crash victims must file a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver within two years of the crash. If you miss this deadline, you may lose your right to compensation."

    Looks to me like the ball is in your court, and her insurance company isn't going to reach out to you to volunteer anything. As a "fault state" it's up to the injured party to figure out who all to go after to get what's due, and there may be multiple claims or lawsuits for a single accident. For example, you get hit at an intersection by a car that runs the red light, and from the investigation it's found that they've been drinking and are well over the limit. You have a claim against her, but you also might have a claim against the bar or restaurant that over served her and allowed her to leave. If the review shows that she swerved to miss a car pulling out of a parking lot before hitting you there may be another claim against that driver. Your insurance company may be able to offer some guidance, and if you had full coverage (collision, comprehensive and liability) on the 'yota they may take the lead going after the gal, but you may need to hire an attorney to get your money.

    On the accident report, you can walk into the police station and get a hard copy of the report. You may have to visit the highway patrol office too, but I expect that they've compiled it into one document. The instructions for phone & computer are a convenience, and old school still works. Bottom line, in a fault state you have to look out for yourself and make justified claims based on the facts. Good luck!

    Hoss,
    A friend lives in UCLA (upper corner of lower Alabama) confirmed my statement. His truck (full coverage) was T-boned by a young gal driving her mama's car, and mama had liability only. His insurance paid him for damages less his deductible. Several months later his insurance sent a letter saying that mama's insurance had denied the claim, saying they didn't agree with the assignment of liability. My friend had to repay his insurance company, and elected to have his truck repaired at a local shop that had reasonable rates.
    As I said earlier, you're on your own to get your money for the 'yota. Again, good luck in your battle!

    i am going to speak again with my insurance company .. i dont know my current agent as my policy has changed hands several times in the last 40 plus years i have been with them ,, but the local office is run by a relative of mine ..i know now i messed up right from the beginning of the wreck ,, i kicked my way out of the drivers door as it was crunched up pretty good ,, i was standing in front of my car looking at the damage and the fellow who videoed it all came up to me and told me i had blood running down my face .. i did not feel that .. the state trooper asked if i needed an ambulance ,, i said no ,, anyway i had a slight headache for the next two weeks .. i was looking left into the parking lot when i was hit and my head hit the drivers door glass cutting me a bit .. looking back i should have at least had myself looked at for a possible mild concussion and a big payday lawsuit but i dont run that way .. if they will make a little bit of effort to replace the yota i will be happy ,,
    iv`e used up all my sick days at work .. can i call in dead ?

    You need to understand, "They" are not going to make ANY amount of effort! "THEIR" focus is to pay you NOTHING. It's up to YOU to go after what's due, whether you run that way or not. You're setting yourself up to get a BIG ZERO.

    I am sure there are at least 3 advertising Law Firms on your TV begging you to call them if you've suffered an injury from a slip / trip / fall / auto accident. The insurance companies will give you the cold shoulder - that's why ambulance chasers have become popular. If you do nothing - they win. You give'em monies for 40 years and now you need'em , better make sure they are there to protect your interests, you've paid for this "privilege"!
