We have an Escape at work that got rear ended, it's been in the body shop for 3 months now. We were amazed that the insurance company was willing to fix it. It's a 2008 Hybrid with 100,000+ miles on it. The impact caused the roof over all the doors to bow out. Estimate came in at $6,500. Part of the delay was the person who hit it was driving a car owned by a local government. I think our insurance is stepping in to pay the bill because settling an accident claim with a government agency can take 6 months to a year. Also, they keep sending the wrong parts.

My personal mechanic (who has not seen the damage) said that if they try to fix a broken frame it will never drive right again and be nothing but problems. I have never heard the term unibody, but maybe they were dumbing it down for us since we are not car people.
