I have been involved in a traffic accident today. My first, and I am extremely shaken. I ran into the back of a vehicle on the freeway and had to have my 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan towed home. Triple AAA towed it and the driver told my dad and I that the damage has push past the "core support" damaging the radiator, AC compressor, water and coolant resevoirs and maybe more. The air bags did not deploy, nor was I injured, but the bumper and passenger side headlights are damaged as well. I am 20 years old, working and putting myself through college. The van was my hugh graduation gift from my dad and has just over 110,000 miles on it. I cannot afford to replace it nor can dad. We HAVE to get it fixed. Where do we start. What should we do. Please help oh, and we have contacted the shop below and he says he will ACTUALLY come to the house to give an estimate!! We live pay check to pay check, are there places that will let you pay off this kind of repair in monthly installments? Unique Collision 3784 Green Ind Way Chamblee, GA 30341 (678) 910-3922

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Tawni, I am sorry that this happened, to help cut down cost of repair you can search a local salvage yard for parts comparable to your year make and model. Typically, a repair facility will not allow you to make payments and release the vehicle to you to drive while making repair payments.
