Sorry to hear that. Any pictures?
On my old car (2007) I had a wild boar (about 350-400 pounds) suddenly appear in front of the bumper. Same story as yours. This beast was impossible to miss and tough as nails. I was going 55 mph. Bumper replaced - end of story. The boar lived to see another day.buickx said:Yesterday morning about 7:45 am I'm driving on a back road, doing about 40 mph, when all of a sudden a deer appears to my right running full bore out of the woods about 5 ft from the truck, and slams into my rear side passenger door, dead center. After getting an estimate from a body shop this morning it's $2,900.00 worth of damage. :-[
Yep, these things are expensive to repair. The damage on mine was a broken grill, the skirting around the front was cracked in the corners and stretched, and the front passenger side fender had a tiny crease in the corner by the bottom of the headlight. $4600 to repair that.buickx said:Went to body shop Saturday....needs more than door shell...trim, mechanism, repaint, not counting what you can't see without removing door...just under $3,000.00
I noted if it's only the door shell which you can't tell until you inspect the vehicle. Don't be surprised that when they start they find something else and the cost goes up. Paint prep, paininting, blending and clear coat are very expensive parts of the repair. You have insurnace so after the deductable you don;t have to worry about the costs going up.buickx said:Went to body shop Saturday....needs more than door shell...trim, mechanism, repaint, not counting what you can't see without removing door...just under $3,000.00
