GM already makes the vehicle in Mexico, and with the demise of the compact pickup truck in America, it might fill a nice slot for people who do not want elephantine trucks with 400 HP that go 140 mph to haul a sack of potting soil and a new rake home in a 2 mile trip.
I can only present you with the golden rule "Whatever got you into a car cheaply when you bought it, will come back to haunt you when you sell it".
It's in the automakers best interests. If cars become too expensive to fuel and drive, where does that leave them? Gas and diesel is certainly not going to be cheaper by 2025.
You can hire your own appraiser and you make the claim against the insurance company of whomever hit you. (In most states you cannot make a DV claim against your own insurance company). You have maybe $4K sitting on the table here, and an appraiser is only going to cost you $300 or so. There's also a website that calculates DV for you, which you can use as further evidence. It costs $39 bucks I think. http://mycarisworthless.com/.
Someone stigmatized your nice car. You're the victim here.
you're lucky you got 150K out of it actually.
