So I haven’t been having the best luck. I was making a left turn and some lady decided to take a red light while I was making a turn she struck me on the rear passenger wheel. It happened so slow, it’s quite ridiculous how cheap built these cars are made, they bend like a soda can barely anything happen to the other vehicle which was a rav4

Sorry to see that. I hope you were kidding on the total loss part. It'll be fixed good as new.

Honestly at this point I rather have them do that, I don’t want to keep paying for a car that’s going to be salvage. Ik man it sucks really I was minding my business but at least it kept me and my kids safe I got lucky it wasn’t a drunk driver speeding who knows how that would of ended up. These cars don’t do good on head on collision a lot of people had died from accidents

I had damage very similar to yours and it was fixed.

I know accidents can be upsetting, but this is definitely not a total loss. Literally a "fender bender" lol. Not sure if your insurance will cover aftermarket wheel damage, so may need to throw your stock ones back on.

It wasn’t my fault it was the lady’s so her insurance needs to take care of all that my insurance has nothing to do with it. The wheel has no damage the suspension is damaged causing the wheel to be toed in and cambered. These Chinese wheels took the hit better then the car ??‍♀

Not necessarily damaged. Likely only out of alignment. Like arpy said, I know it's upsetting but it's just a fender bender.

I'm shocked that someone voted that it's a total loss.

Well, crumble zones and modern cars that do ok in higher speed crashes aren’t the battle wagons of decades past that’d have less superficial damage but allow more energy transfer into its occupants. Plus the push to make car ever lighter for efficiency’s sake. Unfortunately, it makes for cars that look absolutely wrecked when it comes to their sheet metal when they take small hits.

My vote is fixable though with no airbag deployment. Even if rear suspension work is needed, you’re in the rear axle so the power/drivetrain shouldn’t be of concern

Got bumped by a young kid in a keep last summer. 2500$ in damage to repair barely a scratch on his bumper.
