P.S. It wasn't branded, so I'm assuming the frame is perfectly fine.
My Suzuki Grand Vitara Limited Edition was rear ended and finally, is at my mechanics' to be repaired, thanks to my insurance company's settlement. It needs a whole new tail gate, rear bumper, and perhaps rebar (? the square cross-sectioned bar just behind the gas tank that the tow bar attaches to - it's bent in.) THe lights are fine, and she drives as sweet as ever. Also, will probably need the spare tire replaced, as it took a lot of the impact, as well as the solid cover, but I'm not fussy about the cover! My mechanics are fabulous, shop rate only $69/hr, but haven't got back to me yet with an estimate. What would be your estimate and time to repair? The mechanics are in Kitchener, Ontario. Thanks!
