    Default Chassis bend repairs of 2004 Honda City.

    Dear fellas,
    I own city 2004 and it never undergo any major crash except one two days ago. i dont know whether i should refer it major crash or not but the big thing is CHASSIS is bend....
    Due to F....king HID i was blinded while driving and my tyre hit concrete divider, which i was not able to see. So the car windscreen is cracked as it hit is badly, axle tot geya, goda, and one more thing which mechanic told me. But the thing is he told me that i cannot repair this bend chassis and you should go to Honda for this.

    I am well aware how ridiculously Honda charge for their services, i am here to ask you fella from where should i get that chassis fixed?
    The car has reduced in its length by few inches, enough to stuck my knees under dashboard.
    Kindly tell me about some good mechanics, or whether i should go for Honda. How much it would cost (approx)
    As accident happened in Sialkot, so sialkot mechanics would appreciated, or else Lahore ones are fine. But it would be dangerous to drive it here (once axle and things are fixed)

    P.S Alhumdulilah my baby cousin escaped this incident without a single bruise. Although i have been injured badly coz of that steering and screen. Pray for my health plz.

    P.SS i dont have any pics, Sorry. My phone broke, plus it would look ridiculous to take pics after such horrendous crash. One more thing, i guess silencer or something which looked like a long pipe came off from underneath of car...

    Thankyou for reading such an exhausting thing.

    Without pics no one can judge the damaged and if it is repairable or not!
    So post pics , else we can't help you or you may be misguided , chassis repair means car is gone its totalled
    Always respect your parents

    may ALLAH bless you and give you full recovery.

    considering your description the car does seem to be a basket case... only solution would need a chassis alignment rack... and i dont think its something common.... i would suggest getting an estimate from honda at least... and some mechanics.... keep in mind resale is shot... so may be feasible to sell the car as it is instead of repairing if the repair cost is too much
    the problem is not our govt... its the people..

    Chassis bent is a very bad news for you, do this, Get the Chassis only repaired from honda as no one will be able to bring it back to factory state other than honda, and get the dent work done outside,

    nearly every large dealer would have the chassis alignment rack, they can pull it back to shape if no part of it is torn and its pulled out cold.

    the bodywork needs to be fully removed to see and measure the extent of the impact, if you say that the windshield is also cracked then the cabin is also out of square, AHL showrooms can do this because they have the data and rack - but its not cheap.

    Some large/upscale bodywork repair shops also have this rack - you can ask them to straighten it out for you.

    kindly let me know where is AHL showroom? Though the car will be in running condition in a week according to mechanic but chassis is still a concern... Moreover, the car was slow, or else some major losses would have occurred. it was around 20-30km/h

    Chassis maybe have not might suffer much but it will always have alignment issues etc!
    But it is repairable damage (not to original) better option is to sell it as it is

    AHL - Atlas Honda, any large scale honda showroom has that rack - there were 3 in Karachi alone. It can pull the car to correct shape,

    how is the undercarriage?
