That didnít work, so I borrowed a beater from my parents for the remaining time.
That's absolutely ridiculous. This is why insurance companies get sued all of the time.

Imagine if you needed the car to get to work and had no other possible options. Hell yes I would sue. I would sue for the rental car plus any lost wages, maybe more.
