Long Story Short... Wife crashed the 05 gx470 (our nice car) with 150k miles . The fix it shop told me I couldn't drive it, but I did, I just couldn't turn right. The engine sounds fine, but now will die if I take jumpers off (alternator?). I left it as is all winter as my estimate was 8k for a full fix.

Is there anyway to just make this drivable ? The rest of the car is pretty much flawless. It kind of looks like if I just pulled the frame back to where it was that I might have a chance of driving?

What would I ever sell this for as is?

Any thoughts from the pros on what to do?


I have had enough dumb jokes from my dad and brothers so can we just pass on those, please and thank ou.

HUH ? Oh..... CT
I think that’s a good price. I backed the 4Runner into a wall like an idiot and the repair will be 4k, way less damage.

If you are not mechanically inclined to that level save the money and have it done right.

I see rust, sun bleached headlights, corroded wheels, etc. Do you have insurance? I would take the claim on this one whether it’s a repair or write off and shop for a cleaner one myself.

To add to the parts list, rad, condenser, power steering reservoir maybe.
