Had checked the car at A.S.C after the accident.Had got an estimation of nearly ₹1.8-2L for repairing the car.

-New front bumper
/QUOTE]

Unfortunate event happened. The front bumper is costly. Fortuner bumper costing between 25000 to 30000. It can be repaired. It is made of Fiber, and hence any bend can be just heat&straight.

Overall estimated amount is on higher side. Your vehicle at front and Fortuner at back, right? How the front bumper of your vehicle damaged?
The driver was asleep and he hit the car and bumper got broken.

Here is the pic of the car after accident.Sorry for the pic clarity as the uploading of pic is limited to 1MB only.

Update-Due to cheque bounce from our side,the stupid insurance guy is not even accepting the renewal.So,it may take time to get the car repaired.But,we are not bearing those expenses coz the expenses of accident will be beared by that uncle,who took our Innova and ex-owner of the car.

But,I still miss our Innova��.Since the day we bought Innova,I lost my interest on Vento due to low seating and it became old.I hope that our Innova will be back to perfect condition after the repairs.My dad's friend,after seeing this pic,said that chassis has got bend a bit and suggested my dad to sell it off.But,I denied it coz I like this car and I straightaway said him that I started hating Vento since we bought Innova and he agreed about it.I still wanted the Innova to be here with us for atleast 3-4 years.

Really very sad to see this. If Chasis is bend, then kindly think a bit.
If it can be corrected by any workshop, you can retain it.

But how come Toyota bumper is this much cost. Try it in old spare market, surely you can get one.
Waiting for your workhorse back in race.

Update:Estimation of repair would be nearly Rs.2L to 3.5L as per my dad.

Unfortunately,we didn't get the insurance renewed,which got expired on August 24,on time as we were busy with our brother's marriage,which happened in August.Hence,the delay for the repair.Will be getting the insurance renewed by this week and will get the car by this month end or Nov 1st week.

Work has been started and almost nearing its completion

Finally,the work has been started a week ago and my car is almost complete with fitting new parts like radiator,condenser,new horns,intercooler pipes.By Monday or Tuesday,parts like bonnet,front headlights,fenders will get fitted onto the car and after that,Toyota guys will do test drive of the car for checking the car whether it is running with any problems or not.Most probably,by this weekend,we will get the car with new parts fitted in it and get Pooja done at temple.

And,Im gonna get accessories like front and rear bumper guards,music system from dealer itself.

Update:Still didn't get the car due to lack of auspicious day and closure of banks due to the recent ban of Rs.500 and 1000 notes.Hope,I'll get the car by tomorrow i.e Saturday or Monday.

Odo reading when I saw last was 81514 Kms.

Still didn't get the car due to cash crunch[frustration],thanks to our Modi Ji for making us cashless[frustration].But,got the car ownership transferred to dad's name few days ago.Everytime uncle calls me,the person who took the car,says the car will come today or tomorrow.But,still days are going ahead and there is no signs of getting our car from repair.Hence,told my dad to pay that extra Rs.98,273 and get the car ASAP.

I usually hate waiting for something or someone and I hate people who keeps delaying.
