Angry Shark Fin...dead

So, tonight as I was backing out of the garage for some UKNOWN reason my husband hit the garage door button, and of course ripped the shark fin (XM Antenna) right off the car. It tore it out of the roof, scratched the roof and dented it. The connector that holds it in place ripped out and broke off. I got an estimate to fix it today and its going to be over 2100.00. This includes taking the sunroof out, and the headliner down, etc to get to it.

SO, until I can get it in there I am out OnStar, NAV, Satellite radio.

TIP FOR THE DAY: Don't rip this **** thing off. Its going to be a pain in the ass. LOL

Current - 2019 Chevy Equinox 2.0 - LT/2 - AWD - Kinetic Blue - Purchased 01-19-19
Former - 2018 Chevy Equinox 2.0 - LT/2 - AWD - Cajun Red Tintcoat - Purchased 06-11-18; Totaled it 01-14-19

My wife drives into the garage before the door is completely open.. I keep telling her it's a bad habit but it will probably take ripping the shark fin off for her to to agree. I wonder if insurance would cover the damage.

Maybe after you pay the deductible. My wife does same, thinks she gets in or out faster..

Sure, blame your husband. But insurance will cover this if you have full coverage. My mom somehow shut the garage door on the hood of her Buick some years ago, insurance co. didn't even haggle.
