>>14208053 Everything is crazy expensive on cars but by some divine grace it looks like you didn't damage your bumper cover or your door so my guess is it'll be around $700 to repair "right" at a shop approved by your insurance or like $250 by Mexicans who may not do it perfectly (texture/color somewhat off)
>>14208244 No accident report.. Enjoy driving it around like that for months on end waiting for the insurance company to finish their "investigation". If you get it to a shop don't get a rental, you're probably partially at fault. Get the damage estimate from the adjuster, get the check, go buy another one.
What's your insurance coverage, OP? Just liability or collision as well?
If your insurance looks at it they will total the car most likely (unless it is extremely low miles and in perfect condition or something). That panel can't be cheaply replaced as it's part of the roof. Pulling/bondoing/smoothing could be done and make it look halfway decent, but the finished product would be far below insurance company standards - their estimate will be for replacing the panel with new, and it will be higher than the value of the car.
>>14208338 Then you are stuck with the car like it is. No one's going to total it, but you're not going to get any cash to fix it either. So long as it still drives a straight line there's no reason not to keep driving it. Although that door might leak now, I'd drive it through an automatic car wash to find out.
On the bright side, if you pay out of pocket to get it fixed (a cheep maaco job or something), I don't see why anything would show up on a carfax. No insurance claim, no police report, it's like it never happened.
>>14208313 Hard to tell with the bodyside being all bent out of shape. Nothing good to compare the wheel against. Looks to me that the wheel is still straight but the fender is all out of whack. He might be to just get a 4-wheel alignment from a tire shop and call it good.
I would just replace your fugged rear suspension parts, make sure that wheel sits straight, and use the good 'ol automotive hammer to try to seal up the door. But I don't drive newish cars and I definitely don't specialize in body work.
