So i was on Rt 80 in parsippany today.. It was a f_ckin ice storm. i was driving with the pace of traffic when the front of the titan starts to go to the right and the back end of the titan starts to go to the left until i am facing the wrongway in traffic still moving foward but from inside the car i was now moving backward down the hill twards the divider... now on rt 80 they have these weird dividers.. they are metal posts that have steel cables running through them.. well i started going for thos as i seen it in the rear view and i just closed my eyes and prayed until i heard. brap, brap, brap, brap, brap, brap, brap, brap, and the car stopped now i was facing the wrong way twards traffic down in a ditch.. so i went out to look at the dmage and the cables rode up the ball and hitch and went under the rear door and pushed pressure on the bottom of the rear quarter panels... looks like somone used dental floss on my titan. so i just drove out of the ditch (like a champ) and went to my autobody shop.. i have full coverage so its gonna cost me 500 bucks for the co pay but he said since im not taking the rental option i get a 15 dollar day refund and it will be there for at least a month.. so that pretty much pays the co pay.. he sayd that he has to take the bed off and cut out the rear quarter panels out of the bed and replace them. i also ripped off the trailor plug, broke both rear lights, and distroyed the bumper and distroyed the back bed door and the mounts that hold the door on ripped out.. sucks man.

Holy crap son! I'm glad you're alright, but that's NO GOOD for the ol' Titan. I know it's morbid, but did you get any pictures???

You're okay!

I can't imagine your insurance attempting to total out your Titan based on the damage you have.

I messed up the whole front end on mine, no engine damage, and they fixed it. Took two months on mine.

Good luck.

Dude, that is terrible. Its scary to think how that happened so easily. She just 360ed during normal highway driving? That road musta been like glass. I know those guardrails you're talkin'bout, they got them all over NY too. They're worthless.

It's weird when you brake on ice with these trucks, the brake pedal feels really strange, like nothing I've ever felt before. I can't even explain it. Anyone else know what I mean?

I FEEL your pain!

Got rear-ended at a stop light on New Year's Day.

What a pain! Had to pay for a rental and shelled out $600.00 in rental car fees while waiting for Nissan to take FOREVER to ship parts.
