As a consumer would you want to pay premium dollar for a frankensteined brand new vehicle that has been used as a parts donor???
As the dealer would you want YOUR inventory reduced in value by scavenging parts - paying the interest on a unit that sits unsellable until replacements are received? Not to mention being out of pocket for the labor as warranty service does not reimburse for removing parts from a working unit thus rendering it unusable?
OP - this should be an insurance claim - do you have rental car coverage?
