Does anyone know an estimate of fixing a 2010 Mazda 3 with a totally wrecked cooling system and front in general? Rear ended a lifted truck and their tow hitch plowed right into the badge of my hood.

It's a total at least but may want to fix it? A shop need to check this out not a web site. It will be local to you who might even take this on at any cost so check.
Find a whole front "clip" matching engine/trans and all or pass on this whole car make it the donor?

??? It's enough to leak fluid so unknown damage not just what YOU see. It may not be known till professionally checked/measured.

You might see seams hood to cowl area or doors to front fenders a bad sign. Even if OK it may only have sprung back from nano-second impact left other issues???

You could try posting pics but in the end takes in person checking with tools, live eyes seeing what was damaged,

Tom (I do wish you luck it does happen)

You have no idea of the degree of unseen damage that is likely in there. I'm sure the radiator support is damaged and many of them are not "bolt on" and require extensive frame repair to replace.

There are also a lot of plastic components around there that can get quite expensive.
