Doesn't look too bad. But because the cost of the repairs is MORE than the value of the car, it's totaled. There is damage on all 4 sides of the car... all 4 quarter panels, the hood, the liftgate, the bumpers. And you can't really tell it from the picture, but the back tire isn't exactly lined up with the rest of the tires meaning that there is frame damage. I'm having a hard time replacing it; yes, Expeditions are a dime a dozen now-a-days, but this one had a unusual set of options. I need (more than comfort stuff) the big engine (5.4 L) and low differential reduction (more torque). I also need a Class III or Class IV hitch with the electric brake controller.
I don't like car shopping. Sigh.
