how much to fix my 2009 civic's bumper

Hello my 2009 honda civic hydroplaned on the highway and the bumper hit the guard rail. I got some damage on my car's bumper and tail light cover broken. I am not sure if I should submit a claim on my insurance or get it repaired by paying out of pocket. I am looking for advice from folks on the this forum as how much will it cost to get it repaired. Thank you so much for your help!!

That's minor, should be under $1000 to repair. Most likely better to fix privately than claim.

Re: how much to fix my 2009 civic's bumper

Idk, I think it might be more than 1,000, a lady backed into my car while I was working (luckily she had the honesty to come in and tell me)

The bumper was cracked a lot and trunk lid was dented/scratched in a few places...repair was quoted at 2,000.
('06 sedan)

Looks like you'll need a new bumper, tailight, and possible some work done on the quarter panel(can't tell from the pic if it is damaged or not)
My bumper was replaced and trunk lid repaired(not replaced), and mine is a 2006...so like I said I think it might be more than 1,000.

Also, off topic a little...but must have been one heck of a ride to hydroplane on the highway, glad to see all you got was a little body damage.

Thank you so much for your reply. You were right I got some damage on the quarter panel. I took it to a body shop, he said if I am paying out of pocket it would be around $1800 or more but if I go with insurance it would like $2400. I am thinking I might put in a claim with my insurance as it is a lot of money.

Yeah I am glad I am safe. My car did the full 180degree turn on the freeway, got lucky that there was no other traffic. I still don't know how this happened as I was going slow like 55 mph. Just glad I didn't get hurt

I'd go with the insurance, it may be hassle but i mean, what's insurance for in the first place?
If you really explain the situation your rates might not even go up, depending on how kind your insurance company is.

have you checked 8thcivic.com for replacement bumpers? guys on there are selling their bumpers for 300-400 bucks. if that is all you need, i would say check there first.

The grand thing is pretty accurate. Someone backed into mine(and drove off) a month or so ago. I'm thinking it was about a grand to replace it. Total was like $1400 or something, but they also had to straighten the hood and the fenders. Assclowns backed into it hard.
