How do you know what the average price of repairing or replacing a front fender/bumper should cost on a 2002 Toyota Corolla CE?
I have a right inner fender & bumper cover that hits my right front tire when I turn in certain directions and go over certain bumps. For this reason I need to have it fixed or replaced.
I'm not concerned about looks as I've already got quite a few bumps and dents, etc. I am concerned about safety though. I want to know what I am looking at so that when I get to the body shop:
1) I have an idea of what I am dealing with financially.
2) I don't get taken to the cleaners. But rather they can tell that I know that, even if I am not a professional, that I have educated myself.
If you can help me, I would appreciate it.
I do have the name of one place that should be trustworthy, as I was referred there by my mechanic and they are very trust worthy. Other than that, I don't know where is a good place to go.
I am in the between Baltimore & DC, if that helps.
I have a 2002 Toyota Corolla CE beyond that I don't know anything about my car.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
