Will it be salvaged ?

So I got into an accident last night . Guy driving an 04 Honda accord ran a red light going south at 40 mph. I was driving east at around 20 heading straight into the intersection . At the last second I slightly swerved right and braked to avoid completely t-boning him. So my front left was impacted . Car starts right up radiator leaked out all coolant. Does not look like any other damage . Headlighta fog lights new front bumper side front panel etc looks like needs to be replaced . I need some opinions on if it will be salvaged or repairable . Any help appreciated thanks . I miss her already I loved that car!��

Ah...sorry to hear! As long as there's no frame damaged but it's all up to your insurance adjuster. My previous car was repairable but felt better off that it would be cheaper to total the car and get me into something else

How does the suspension look? Wheel bent in or does it look fine?

It will most likely totaled if repairs cost about 80% or more of the wholesale value. Another "total" is if airbag(s) deployed.

My guess would be $7000 to $10000 to fix, how much is your car worth?

Paying cash won't help your score. Put the money in the bank (a dedicated savings account), finance the car and use the money in the bank to make the payments. This takes quite a bit of discipline so watch yourself. Your score is based on your payment history, not how much you bought with cash. Paying cash for a brand new Rolls does nothing for your FICA score.
