Did they show you where it was bent?
It's possible that the chassis has been bent without you really realising ie driving over something, running up a curb or something like that. Chassis damage is repairable so the first step would be to understand where it is and see what's required to get it sorted out.
They did show me where it was bent, the left hand rail has what I would class as a crinkle in it. I'm getting it quoted today, but if I could claim insurance for it that would be best for me. Its only a $6k car so I don't want to spend a lot.
I can't imagine them repairing something that's worth so little. They'll probably just pay out on it.
Well the quote came back at $1400 dollars. I wouldn't mind if they paid out on it, my issuance does pay out on the agreed value. Biggest thing I'm wondering is if I don't know how or when the damage was caused, what are the chances they will approve a claim.
