Re: collision Sign In

That's a tough question. A 20+ mph hit in the front could turn an Accord into an accordion. It might also depend on if it hit a moving or non moving object.

As for prices that is really difficult to assess over the internet. You might need to have a body shop check it out and give you some sort of estimate. It being an old car with high mileage, might not be worth fixing.

Re: collision Sign In

The engineers designed the vehicle to crumple up on impact because that will absorb most of the force which means less transmitted to the occupants. If you notice the under structure of the hood is designed to fold up. If it didn't, the hood would go up through the windshield and decapitate the driver. The radiator core support and fenders are also designed to collapse. Get hit hard enough and the steering column collapses and the engine goes up underneath the vehicle.

I can't imagine driving an older car that had a metal dash and no seat belts. I'm sure lots of people did the old superman through the windshield in those.

yea you got a point there 3 year autobody but its been about 5 6 years now since i've done a thing with autobody i know about the colision points.... but oh well hate to get rid of a really nice car that ran so good....one other question on impact the car shut off no power to the car at all i couldent even row up the windows or close the sunroof but when i reconnected the battery the hazzards work what would cause everything else from working opening the door the lights dont even come on what would cause that only hazzards buttion works when everything else is just dead i never really been inside all that electrical Sh!t in car i tend to avoid that Sh!t and let some one else work on it ... and yes i don't put in radios eather bc i'll end up F**king them up lol

Re: collision Sign In

I am sure there is an electrical harness that runs along the radiator core support for the front lighting, fans, and whatever else that was probably damaged.
