Escape the damage

Doh!!

Daughter just cracked up her Escape. Now i get to find out how hard they are to work on

Looks like she needs a front strut and a side axle and CV joint. Hopefully, the CV joint broke and didn't farge the tranny too.

Them pesky sunbirds just seem to jump out of nowhere, according to her anyway.

Garage
Escapes are smaller than trucks, and Sunbirds are a little harder to chew. Have her stick with Honda's. They're a little easier on the pallet of the Escapes.

Climbed under it last night.

Not super confident about what she might have bent. Looks like I need to get a more 'seasoned' Escape person to have a look. There goes the bank account
