can other parts of vehicle be damage if no visible sign through the naked eye?
does ford dealership mechanic during inspection only repair whats broken or damage?
will the parts be replace with the original manufacture parts?

Yes but unlikely. He's not going to fix something that is not broken that would be pointless. And from a Ford dealership they will use oem parts for sure.

It's the body shops job to find anything damaged. The more they fix the more they make and the happier the customer will be. A good shop will take the time to fix it right. Anything the shop finds damaged from the accident the insurance will pay for.

When I drifted into a curb I bent my axle shaft and rim, every thing else was fine. I was quoted for $600-650 to repair it at the dealership but ended up doing it my self for about $300, appearently a solid rear axle is fairly strong. Who need IRS right.

your damage dont sound bad, just outer is damage no real mechanic problems. im surprised my airbag didnt deploy, it was hit pretty hard against a curb(passenger rear wheel) and a pole( dented the passenger door) knocked it clean off the ground. can my airbags be defective?

Well it was worse than it sounds. And yeah they probably didn't deploy because most of the sensors are in the bumpers I believe.

Not much... Do 2013s have irs?? If not maybe the sway bar is bent and your axle but that's all u can think of really. And the dent they might just be able to fix, but who knows for sure.

today, claim adjuster came and body shop examined the car. small portion of the fender near passenger door will be repaired, passenger front and rear wheel & tires will be replaced, passenger rocker panel will be replaced, passenger door will be replaced. total came out to be 3.8k but the car has not been lifted up for underneath inspection. cost could be more if axle or suspension are damaged which its very likely. as for right now the car takes about 9 days to repair, any other problems will probably add another week or so. im so relief, my baby is gonna be alright.

It's incorporated into the ABS system and there's a built in accelerometer that adds to the witchcraft it calculates.

No, there's sensors at all for corners incorporated into the braking system, usually on the inside of the rotors. It senses constantly what each wheel is doing in relation to the others. Combining this info with the accelerometer data it can sense a skid, wheel spin, sliding on ice,rain,or snow, etc... Stability controls main purpose is to keep you pointed straight and prevent any situation that may lead to a rollover situation. The traction control just handles wheel spin. But when these aids are both enabled they work hand and hand to keep things in check. But like any electronically controlled system it can make the wrong decision. Some instances it can hurt you by abruptly cutting out throttle when the throttle can actually help you get out if the slide when used by experienced drivers. Either way, your not a newb, these are good questions. Good luck to you! I hope helped clear things up a little.

You ask advice from people who know what they're talking about and have been down this road before. Then you don't supply any pics so they can properly assist you and relieve some of the so called stress and anxiety your feeling worrying if your car is totaled or not. Which it's not btw. Now you have the nerve to call one of the best contributing members to this forum and all around nice guy a troll for cracking a joke at your expense. Burning any bridge that you made here is about as good of a decision as letting your uncle drive your car in the rain with the advanced track off. Find help on another forum if you don't want it from here, can't take a joke, or are going to start name calling. Grow up and get your act together.

I got your back gtstyles.
