Question about 2000 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Bumper estimate My son backed into the rear bumper of a 2000 pathfinder. It caused minor scratch marks and about a quarter size dent. Estimates for repair at two locations in the Seattle area were $550 and $640. The lady was just as surprised as us on the costs of repair. She said most of the cost was in the bumper removal. Could you explain the reason for so much labor to remove the bumper? Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated.

If this car is a second car why don't you find out if a shop would bench repair the bumper? You could take it off, have them recondition the part and then you reinstall it.
If you have time and luck there may be a twin car to yours in a Salvage yard. With even more luck it may be the same color. It may be good enough to bolt on without repainting.

If it only has slight dents and a little rust you'd be better off having those repaired, with the products used today for rust and bodywork, the cost would be a little less in overall costs,, your going to have to have the replacement body part painted to match the rest of the car anyway , and replacing any quarter panel in a car is one of the hardest fixes on a body , getting alignment correct , If nothing else I would take it in for some estimates on total cost. If you still would rather do the replacement, I'll hunt down that info for you

I hit a red pole that put a dent and scratched my car. How much would it cost to fix.


Depends on how big the dent is. Can you get a dent puller and pull it out and then just have aplace touch up the scratch. Most auto body shops give free estimates. I would look up three places and get the estimates and choose the one that suits you best. Good Luck.

I have a holden senator new model 2009, a car slightly.


Depending on how deep the scratches are, you may be able to keep the bumper. You can probably sand, bondo, prime and paint the bumper and be ok. If you choose to replace, after market bumper covers start and around $70 usd and OEM bumpers start at $250 usd. Good Luck I hope you find this very helpful!
