I may need to buy as many as 3 doors, The front driver side door is completely smashed in and will not close, the rear driver side door as smashed in but can close with some work, it still may need a new door, the front passenger side door is smashed in some but still closes and the dents can be removed, the rear passenger side door has a football sized dent all of the windows except for the rear passenger side are gone. I don’t now how much a whole new door is, I’ve repaired body damage before but these doors may be totaled I’m not sure. I’m hoping it won’t be more than $2,000 to get it at least drive able.

I live in LA. Had an unfortunate mishap and smashed my neighbor’s front bumper of a 2003 Toyota Camry LE. Body shops are quoting $160 for a replacement bumper, $207 for paint materials, $218 for body labor, and $440 for refinish labor and about $225 in taxes. Does this seem typical? Does anybody know of a good body shop in west la? Is there anything I can do to bring down the cost? I’m a college student cant really afford things like this. I really do not want my insurance to go up either. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

I got into an accident last night where I reversed into a Nissan 350z. I hit his front left bumper with my rear right.

Fortunately, I did minor damage to his Nissan 350Z bumper… There’s a small puncture (maybe a milimeter or so) below the lights (all the lights work ok, the people inside were ok and no structural damage, just bumper and paint). How much would that cost? Would you need to replace the whole thing (how much) or would a repair be more advisable (how much)?

I need to repair my rear bumper (Honda Accord 2005 silver coupe). The paint’s peeled off and the bumper’s dented in pretty good, but no punctures. It looks like someone smashed it in with a grapefruit, but the reverse curvature is almost perfect. Should I replace it? Or should I repair it? How much would either one cost?

Thank you in advance!

My car is under warranty, so I didn’t have to pay for the following repairs…
Three new wipers, front and back
One new spring for airbag sensor inside instrument panel
Extra lubrication for acceleration pedal

Hi. I am trying to find out how much a mechanic would charge me to fix a dent on the front hood of a 93 inifinit g20? The dent is minor, but enough to cause a slight “pocket” or raise on the right side of the hood when closed.

If I need to get a whole new hood, how much would I be charged by the mechanic for part and labor to have it installed?

Also what needs repair if a car tends to overheat? And how much would that cost me if taken to a mechanic?

And oil leak repair is how much to have fixed by a mechanic?

If you have some ideas of how much this kind of repairs run (including parts and labor) please let me know. I’m trying to make a decision.

Thanks in advance.

So I just rear-ended someone and his car did not have not even one tiny scratch while my mazda 3 is all messed up :( The passengers side headlight is all smashed and the hood got bended a little. Should I call my insurance? will my insurance go up? how much will it cost?
