Here is the result of someone doing an improper lane change. $10K later she is all new.

Pretty stout dent, but if there’s no real damage to the paint, a good PDR technician will make that disappear.
Added bonus... no panel repaint and blending.

Sadly, there is paint damage, there’s a pretty deep scratch about 6 inches in the middle of the dent that you can’t really see in this photo.
The scratch could probably be buffed out or touched up.
Go get an opinion or two from a PDR guy before you get it repaired
I had PDR done on the wife’s Odyssey, there was a scratch present also and the tech had no problem with it.
Only problem for a PDR tech is if the finish is cracked or if there is paint missing.

It was a female driver who hit me. Early 50's, talking about how she couldn't wait for the police because she was going to see Cher in Newark. Real Housewives of NJ type. Told her she would be making a big mistake if she left the scene of an accident. Oddly enough my dashcam did not capture the event. It was a very light hit really but still did damage. Scuffed up the wheel a bit and put a small gash is the sidewall of the tire. So I explained to her insurance(Allstate) that the tire pressure monitoring uses the ABS sensor and that replacing only a single tire would result in an error light since the rotational mass would be off. They agreed and replaced the opposite side tire too. Now I am having them rotated to put the new tires in the front.

23,800 miles on the rear tires and 0 miles on the front. Her insurance covered a rental car, a 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan. It was nice to drive that for 2 weeks to see what it was like. Lousy on fuel economy (22-26mpg) but lots of usable room. I liked that the seats could fold into the floor. After a few days though I really missed my Civic. Headed to the dealer at noon to have the fuel/oil/a.c. update/tsb performed. 15% oil life left so the free oil change timing is nearly ideal. Only 8300 miles on this oil change.

Hmmm...could that open the door (no pun intended) to rust issues maybe? Not saying it will but just thinking of some potential issues further down the line if the scratch isn't properly sealed or dealt with.
