New Trax owner from New Brunswick

Hello all, bought this beauty as a wreck, really don't understand why insurance wrote this one off. Must have something to do with new vehicle replacement policies. No air bags deployed and the vehicle wasn't even in an impact, it was just ditched from lost of control. I replaced driver's side headlamp assembly, driver's side mirror, driver's side fender, driver's side mudflap and lower front valance in one mornings workout. Buffed the paint and voilà! Brought it for an alignment and they didn't touch it, said it was bang on. I was lucky to get the fender and mirror of the right color.



I've since made it more mine by adding front fog lights, rear bumper protector and doing little stuff like painting the front bow-tie and rear wiper cover. This replaces my old 2007 Cobalt which was a great car and my 2011 Silverado, wish I could say it was a great vehicle but the check engine light was on more often than alarm clock.





Today I replaced all four center caps that were really corroded from last winters driving, will never happen again with me.

Nice job, looks good. If not for needing more room, we would still have our Trax. Hope you enjoy is for a long time, maybe a little tint on the front door windows next ?

Great rescue story and a really beautiful car. Looks like she's finally found a good home. Don't tell my black LT, but I think yours is one of the best looking colors available on the Trax.

Nice looking Trax, you can find some great cars that need very little in the way of repair that were written off for small amounts of damage.

A friend of mine builds wrecks, he buys cars makes the repairs then sells them after driving them for awhile, he buys high end cars mostly.

Good luck with your new Trax.

Did you put the front tag on? Mine didn't come with one installed and now I want one.

Tag is the license plate I think he is referring to the license plate bracket or holder.

My car came with one I took it off, because Pennsylvania is a one license plate state.
Of course now I have 4 little holes that the dealer drilled in my bumper, but the little holes are better than that big black thing to hold the plate.
