    Default after horrible accident with chassis damage advice...

    hey guys, i have a 96 civic vti, its done about 190k kms. recently i had an accident on an open empty road. i believe i had a proportionating valve problem in the brakes and the experts at honda believe so too, but now that the car is a wreck we cant tell for certain. i ran onto the divider between the service lane and main road and all the damage happened under the car. im told the engine is fine, but hardly anything is left of the suspension in the fron, or brake kits in the front, and radiators and everything. plus the engine foundations are damaged. most worrying is the chassis. at honda they claim they can completely restore the car to better than new, but ive heard many people saying that a car doesnt drive straight after chassis damage. i was wondering if anyone could tell me what to expect when the car gets back...

    no one can fix HONDA cars better than honda (my personal experience) - so i would advise you to go to honda, thought they might be little expensive but they are masters in Honda cars.

    @poster no need to worry,nothing is impossible.
    can you pm me the pix?
    i guess you ate subframe and connected suspension right?
    unbolt it,throw it away,find a complete set in kabuli market(yeah its easy to find it) and get it coupled to the car simply.
    you might face some fixing problem if damage is done to the main frame but i presume that wont be too much.that happens in cases when car gets hit at very high speed etc.
    p.m me the pics,i'l tell you the exact tale.don't get depressed chap,chin up
    and yo...try to eliminate the autocross thingy in routine driving

    @immad100: Hahaha will do very soon man. The car is at Honda right now and I'll be out of town for some days. I will go to the work shop and find out all I can and pm it to you. I think it's a little late for pictures cuz they might have done the body work already but I will find out all I can. I wanted to autocross after the accident. Wanted to learn what to do in similar situations in a controlled environment. Because of the proportionatint valve problem, my car tailed out like a fish out of water the second I touched the brakes and this was at 130 but on a very open and completely empty road in the afternoon. Because the car is so wrecked, i thought I can spend a little on the parts I mentioned in my civic thread in the performance section. Just cuz they have to be replaced anyways. Including the wheels and tires. @irfansiddique: the car is at Honda man. And yeah experience tells me that also haha. They have always done a great job with my cars.
