wrecked car

something terrible happen last night, my uncle crashed my 13' stang....... he took out for a drive after a light rain had the advancetrac turned off, made a hard and fast right turn on a wet road the whole car lost control. passenger rear wheel is bent pretty bad, passenger door is dented and with the bottom plastic piece of the car fell off. this has been reported, now waiting for a car inspection on monday. anyone know if the damage is more then just a bent wheel? could the rear axle, sway bar..etc be damaged too? i hope my auto insurance declare the car totaled, i dont think repair will fully recover my car back to its original performance. im so stressed out, thinking about trading my car in. about how much will my trade in value be with depreciation and accident(repaired)?

Post some pics if you can. We can't determine how bad it could be without getting a good look at it.

It all up to the insurance company as far as damage goes for a repair. They can only make guesses as to what's bent underneath, they mostly just look at what they can see and do their estimate. Probably have to take it to a shop to look at the suspension underneath.

I wrecked my jeep about 2 weeks ago and think something is bent under the rear but my insurance basically said they could only guess what could be bent so I need to take it to a shop and have them figure it out for them.

We'd love to help, but no one's going to be able to answer your questions unless we can see the exact damage on your car. Specifically pictures of the undercarriage and rear axle. Yes, a picture of a '73 Mustang with damage to a front wheel and fender can give us a basic idea of the rear fender and wheel damage to your modern Mustang, but we'd honestly just be guessing. The best thing is to wait for the insurance company to do their inspection. We wouldn't want to get your hopes up by telling you one thing and then the outcome be completely different than what we say.

Cars probably not totaled, you need to wait for the shops assessment. I know that's a rough wait. You'll be impressed with the repair if the body shop knows what they're doing, find out what dealers they do work for in the area. That's a good indicator of their quality. Usually if its fixed right only professionals can tell.

Sorry for this stress man, but this is what insurance is for!

Damn, it's just a car. You or I take it, your uncle wasn't hurt? You won't really know until the insurance company looks at it. Being a 2013, chances are they won't total it. About $5,000 on the trade in.

As long as the unibody is straight any damaged part can be replaced and your car will be fine and perform as it did before as others have said we can't see the damage but it likely bent the axle it doesn't sound like something that can't be repaired and be totally fine. I at one time had to replace an engine, transmission,gas tank, brake lines on a newer honda accord had the car totally stripped from head to toe. Put it back together and has been fine. Moral here is stop stressing 1. Its just a car 2. You uncle is ok and 3. It can be fixed. Make insurance take it to a dealer imo you want techs who know the car to asses any damage. Good luck.

the unibody didnt look damaged, the only damage i saw was passenger side. passenger door is dented need to slam to close the door properly, bottom piece below the door fell off. other than that just the rear passenger wheel bending inward and the bars on the wheels broken in half. i really wish i had some pictures but i was hung up on making calls and getting someone to tow my car out of the gas station. my only option is to wait for the inspection on monday. the car is dropped off at a ford dealership closest to my house, mechanic there should be familiar with mustangs

Based on your description and it being a '13 it's probably not totalled. You'll have it back in 6 to 8 weeks and will lose your butt on resale or trade.
Unless you have $6-8k in cash laying around to make up the difference or are willing to go upside down on a car you're stuck with it for a long time.

Also, depending on what you put down I hope you bought gap insurance as it will be even more important now

thanks for your advice, i have taken it to consideration. as a first time car buyer im not familiar with this type of stuff. it would be great if you can help me out. im planning to trade it in for a new 14' gt. this 13' gt is currently being financed, i putted down 9k, remaining amount is 23.5k not including the finance rate(around +1.7k). will the remaining amount be added to the new car total? about how much can i get trading this car in (after repaired)? if difference is only 6-8k, im willing to put that extra money tours the new car. even with it repaired its not going to be the same, not to mention if they miss any part thats not visible to the eyes. i just want a new car, the bad feeling the car has been wrecked and possible future mechanic problem.

From my hw and being In the market I wouldn't touch a car involved in a accident. That being said get it fixed and just keep It for a while if ford fixes it which that's who you should have do it . Then you should be fine it sucks but at end of the day no one was hurt and it's just a car

Yeah I would highly doubt it would total. The way your describing it does not make it sound like $35,000 in damage. I drive an 02 and wrecked it, all in all it came out to $8600 to fix it. I found the best shop around and had them do it... You would never even know it was in a wreck. It does not drive different, look different, or preform different. I think your worrying a bit to much I would never personally take a $8000 loss just because my car was in a wreck and I thought it would never be the same. But it's your money and your decision... And if you keep telling yourself it will never preform as good then the first time you drive it, you will look for something to be wrong that isn't. And then make yourself belive that something is wrong. I think you should calm down and stop worrying about it till its all fixed up.... Either way let us know what you decide.

I work at a body shop and I can assure you that from what you described that the cars not totaled. Good news is that a good shop can fix your car back to original or better than original condition. I know it's no fun at the moment but it'll be okay!

The damage has to equal 70% of the cars value inorder to total it. Your description of the damage is far from that.
