To "total" a car means that you were in an accident and the car is not repairable.
I had a couple of "toteled experiences" in my earlier days. When a vehicle suffered a collision and the physical damage, which requires x number of parts and Y numbers of labor hours for the repair, exceeds its market value, it's "totaled".
It came from the bottom line of the bodyshop estimate.
Cool BreezeI don't understand how anyone could "total" a car.
