    CX-3 hit by elderly driver

    My cx-3 parked outside and hit by an elderly driver during thanksgiving night. Driver was ok but went to the hospital for evaluation.
    My car had less than 3k miles.

    Not too sure. Iíll have to wait till I get an assessment. But the rear wheel seems to be bent inwards. So could be axle damage.

    Just an update.
    Damage came out to $9800.00 and another few thousand supplemental damage after taking the car apart.
    Surprisingly the car drives like new and doesnít in anyway feel like itís been hit. Have to say the body shop did an amazing job. Rental car cost came out to ~$1200 (approx 1 mos) Glad Iím not the one paying for any of this. I directly dealt with the other insurance company and things went much faster. Iíd say all in all cost of damage and repair and rental was probably ~$13,000. Have Iíve gotten the low end model, it probably would have been totaled by the insurance company. Glad itís a lease!
