Hey guys..I'm new to this forum..this is my first post here..my car had a front collision damage..the frame is untouched during the accident just body parts damage..checked by mechanics..my question is..is it repairable? Will it affect the driving after correctly repaired? They say if the damage only external body parts it's nothing and can be repaired as new..is that correct? advice me please..again car frame is fine and untouched during the accident.

Anything is repairable, but is it worth the cost? What does the insurance adjuster think?

If done correctly, it should drive the same as it did before the accident.

I live in Jordan..the insurance company will cover all the repairs costs..my question is do I have to worry after the repair?? I'm worry that the car won't operate fine after the repair!! Repair will be at Ford dealer!!
So changing the damaged parts will be enough and the car will be fine again??

There are too many variables to consider to give you an accurate answer. You should be asking those questions to the person performing the repairs. If there are problems later on that are related to the accident, your insurance should cover that.

Wow...I can't believe that didn't get totaled... Was an air bag deployed? ( it should've been)...How fast were you going? This must be a brand new car and I'm guessing the labor rates in Jordan are lower than the US...

If the frame was undamaged then it should't be a problem,,,Just fenders, hood, cross support, frt clip & paint,, maybe some electrical....

When it's done, just look it over close,,, No large gaps between the fenders and doors & hood and you should be good..

Afyer reading his question it appears the car hasn't been gone over yet. It may well be totaled, depending on the cost of the parts. I'm would expect the bags did deploy which will probably add a couple thousand to the estimate.
