well, shes off to mcdonald pontiac for an estimate.... i hate these guys.. but oh well its who insurance "reccommended
Screw what insurance recommended!!!! They are probably trying to get the cheapest estimate for themselves. It'* your right to have your car fixed where YOU want it fixed. Good luck on that. And defintiely check the suspension and everything and get what you deserve.

Hopefully the guy in the Blazer will get what'* coming to him, by that I mean hopefully he'll get run off the road by someone else, preferrably off the road and down a cliff.

Ditto.

Seriously, FireDevil, don't let insurance tell you where to get your car fixed. If you don't trust that place, take it somehwere you DO trust.

When my brother backed into my car, his girlfriend'* parents (whose van he was driving) tried to get me to take it to the cheapest place. I didn't trust those cheap places, so after a week of finding estimates for them I got to go with my first choice, and I'm glad I did because they even painted my hood which other places were not going to do.

Owwwiiieee!
When my car got smashed up I took it to two places for estimates. The dealership I bought the car from: ~ 5500$ all OEM parts, complete inspection of frame, etc... Local body shop:~ 3700$ with junkyard parts. Needless to say I took it to the dealership. I did not want junkyard parts on my car. Take it to where you can trust the work and the replacement parts.
