Well it happened :( - used oem rear hatch?

Well after 8.5 yrs and 116,000 miles someone backed into the fozzy. It will need a new hatch and the black plastic piece on the rear bumper. Iím bummed but trying to stay positive. At least it wasnít my new truck.

I was originally thinking about taking it to a body shop but part of me wants to keep oem paint on it so Iím thinking about getting a used hatch from the junk yard that matches. Any ideas on where to look for an oem rear hatch for a silver 2011 forester in Western PA

Thanks

@adock22096 shipping on that could exceed the price of the part, so you'll want to find one locally.

Try a search here: Car-Part.com

Don't want to go through insurance?

The higher, the fewer.

If you are picky, I'd recommend having a body shop do the repairs. It will be expensive, but it will be done correctly... to your sanctification. It could require additional body work to get the replacement hatch to fit properly... perfectly.

I'm going to say a good body shop paint job will be better than what came on the vehicle & it will be expensive. As with most things in life... you get what you pay for. Go cheap & that's what you'll get!

No we board our horses at the guys barn so he was just going to write a check for it. I did decide to go with a body shop as it was going to be less of a head ache. My neighbor who is also picky about paint recommended a body shop thatís not to far from home plus they have really good reviews online. I took it to get quoted today and itís going to be $1756 to replace the hatch with an oem hatch and replace the black plastic piece on the top of the bumper.

Yes, expensive, but it will be perfect or they will make it as perfect as it can be!

Thatís actually cheaper than I was expecting. I was thinking it would be at least $2000.
