I did a number on the front of my 2004 Ford Explorer. Basically, I rear-ended a car at something like 10-15 mph (brakes locked). The other car, a Jeep Liberty, looked like it sustained about two puncture wounds to the spare tire cover.
It still ran, no gauges were off, no leakage… nothing seemed bad for about 24 hours. I started thinking, “Okay, it’s ugly but drivable until I can get it fixed” Then I had to restart it and it made a HORRIBLE rattling noise. So much for that idea.
With the provision that I won’t hold anyone to anything, can anyone give me a very rough estimate for repair?
