Hi Fools... I come to you hat in hand seeking advice and condolences. My 1994 Honda Accord was stolen last night. (I recount the episode here -- http://www.fool.com/News/mft/2004/mft04101319.htm -- and put out an APB in the Virginia-Maryland-DC area.) I of course hope that some kids took my car on a loving joy ride after which they parked it neatly in front of a police station with an envelope of cash that to cover the damage done to the ignition. Yeah, right. Here's the kicker... I only have liability coverage with Geico. (Don't worry, my mother will take care of all the "I told you so's" in the coming days.) After calling the police I called Geico. The rep took down all the information and assigned me to an ajuster. The adjuster called this morning and left a very detailed message that essentially re-stated what I already knew: Without comprehensive coverage, theft is not covered nor is damage done to the car while it was stolen. So... now what? Was I right in calling my insurance company right away?How long should I wait before giving up hope of recovery? Do kids take cares to chop shops, or was this a probably a professional job? Is there any workaround to the whole liability thing or should I just kiss goodbye any chance of getting a KBB-valued check made out to me from Geico? Thanks for any insights you can provide. Now, I'm going to call and get my lashes from my mother.Hoofin it for a while,Dayana
