diminution in value (auto)

A measure of the perceptual and/or actual lost market value for automobiles involved in major accidents, even if the automobile or vehicle is repaired properly. This lost value is particularly relevant for newer and higher-value vehicles. Most states do not recognize an automobile insurer's obligation to indemnify for this type of loss.
