How Much Will It Cost To Repair A Car Dent?
Its Located Above The Drivers Side Tire And Is Probably The Size Of A Softball? Heelppp
The cost depends on whether the paint has been scraped or chipped off. Without paint damage you might be able to fix it yourself with ordinary tools or take it to a paintless dent repair (PDR) place for roughly $100-150. With paint damage you would look at $300-1000 depending on whether the fender would need to be replaced.
If you are hesitant about spending this much money right now then consider applying zinc-rich primer on any bare metal or otherwise scraped surface to prevent permanent rust damage. With a well-done zinc-rich primer application this will buy you indefinite time to wait or reconsider if the dent can stay.
Help With Car Insurance?
Can Someone Explain To Me How Car Insurance Works? I Know A Little Bit About It, But I Need To Know What I'M Dealing With Because In A Few Months I'M Going To Buy A Car. I Have A Lot Of People That Can Help Me Definately But I Wanna Know For Myself What Its About. Thanks!
Sure I'll help. Keep in mind this is a basic-basic rundown of the whole thing. And you didn't say whether you live in a tort or no-fault jurisdiction, so I'll go with tort because it's more common. Here's the stuff an auto policy will contain...
Liability (bodily injury / property damage): This is the required stuff, and how much you need depends on where you live because it's a matter of state / provincial law. You probably want more than the required minimum, because liaiblity is what covers your butt if you're sued in an accident, and you can't buy extra coverage after the accident happens. Doesn't work that way.
Uninsured Motorist: Covers you (usually just for injury but sometimes vehicle damage) against damage caused when the other idiot is at fault but has no or too little insurance.
Accident Benefits: This goes by many names, but will cover you for your injuries in an accident if it's your fault or if you can't sue the other guy for whatever reason.
Collision: Covers your vehicle against at-fault accidents, hit and run damage, and usually accidents that are the other guys' fault but he has no insurance.
Comprehensive: Also called fire & theft, it covers the non-accident damage to your vehicle. Lightning, tornado, vandalism, broken glass, falling objects, etc.
Loss of Use: This covers you to get a rental while your machine is in the repair shop because of a claim.
Family Protection: Covers you if you have to sue the other guy (usually for injuries) and you win a million but he's only insured for fifty grand. It's kind of like uninsured motorist, but gives you more coverage and works even if the other guy isn't uninsured.
And there you go. Remember that's only the very basics. The laws and regulations vary between states and provinces, so ask your agent / broker for a better summary than this one. Remember to ask about upgrades and options and what they cost, because some of them are worth it and some are just pure profit for the insurer. Guess which ones they try to sell you on first!
I Have A 2009 Dodge Journey And The Side View Mirror Glass Is Cracked. Nothing Else Is Wrong.?
What Should I Do? I Am Seventeen And I Do Not Know Much About Cars. The Glass Is Just Cracked/Shattered, Everything Else Is Fine.
Check around, the driver's mirror on my wife's '97 Dakota cracked and I had the mirror (just the glass portion) replaced at our local auto body parts supplier for the grand total of $15.00. The glass portion is just glued to the motorized framework.
If your mirrors are heated, replacement may be more involved, check locally before buying a complete mirror.
Has Anyone Ever Bought A Car At An Auto Auction?
I Am Going To An Auction In A Few Weeks And So Far People I'Ve Talked To Who'Ve Bought Cars At Auctions Have Had Them Break Down Shortly After Purchase. Does Anyone Have Any Good Stories, Or Should I Just Go To A Dealer?
Remember an auction is not a "used car lot", it is a HUGE inventory of used cars....most have not been cleaned up, recently maintained, etc.
Dealers go to auctions a few times a week to buy cars for their used car inventory. But what most don't realize is....that dealer then has the car worked on by a mechanic, has it detailed by a detail company, then a touch up paint company goes over the car, a dent removal company, a windshield and glass company, and interior repair company, a pin stripe company and last a smell company. This is what makes an auction car....a good used car.
Can you get a deal at auction? sure....save thousands over what a dealer might be charging for the same car on his lot. But the car at auction.....hasn't had anything done to it yet. So unless you can get dealer cost (wholesale cost) on those above services....the thousands you saved....you will lose once you clean it up and get it to a mechanic.
Now if the car is like 1 year old, 15,000 miles or less....then there isn't much of the above list that needs to be done to the car...and these are the ones you can save money on.
I deal with auction cars weekly.....as I am a touch up paint company.
