Imagine the following: Your luxury vehicle has been damaged by another party. You may be sitting at a red light, driving down the road, or just received your car back from a valet. Bottom line is that it has now been damaged by someone else's negligence.
You go through the unpleasant process of getting your vehicle repaired and finally the car is in your possession looking "like new." You test drive it and think "all is good."
Fast forward a bit: You are now looking to sell or trade your vehicle. The potential buyer runs a CarFax or AutoCheck and learns of the damage to your vehicle six months earlier. The next thing you know, the potential buyer tells you that your luxury vehicle isn't worth your asking price and the deal falls through.
Welcome to the world of Diminished Value! Despite your vehicle having been satisfactorily repaired, it is now "damaged goods" in the eyes of the public. It is a loss based on the belief of most people, that once goods become damaged, they are never as valuable as they would have been had they never sustained damage.
