Insurance companies are not on your side. They are in it to make money. You do have to make sure things are done correctly as it is your car and they just want it fixed. Usually to the lowest bidder. The claim adjuster will evaluate the car and so will the body shop.Ah yes, I see them now. Don't worry about getting it fixed at the dealership, most don't do bodywork or paint anyway. They are only useful for access to proprietary tools and software. Insurance uses the best body shops in town from what I've seen, let them deal with it. Might get a new wheel bearing as the basic bearings used in these little passenger cars aren't designed for lateral forces. But then again it's not an open discussion, you won't be asked for your opinion. Just let them deal with it, you enjoy your rental and be happy you walked away with a story to tell.
Do yourself a huge favor and see what body shops they offer and then look them up in the BBB. They should give you a couple choices. Choose the one with the best review.
