On Friday i mashed my brand-new 2010 Subaru Forester 2.5 X Limited.
Almost 5 months to the day after trading in my 1994 Jeep Gr.Ch. Laredo for crushing via the US CARS.gov program.
So many crunch-free yrs, and now i have an accident... in my new Foz. :shake:

Current estimate is US$4600+ ...*sigh*. and "10(labor)+3(parts)" working days.

Thanks to those on the forums here, i did some research via my insurance, BBB.org, etc. i decided to get my Foz repaired at a shop chain with a nation-wide, multi-year guarantee. I'll post back with how that goes.. but so far so good. (They emailed an estimate to me today w/ photos, including these .)

FYI: if you don't have another means of transport, consider the extra few $ per payment for a rental car. lesson=hard-way:chair:

Thanks for asking. I was making a left at a 5-point; ... the other car was a Honda accord. low speed collision but both cars un-drivable.
Frame was checked...a bent tie-rod and a few other bits, but frame was good. We JUST missed much more damage by less than an inch (driver door ok, grill ok, battery ok, hood ok). So we were VERY lucky.
