Vehicle damage of any kind is rarely inexpensive to fix. Certain components of a vehicle can often exceed the value of the vehicle in replacement and repair costs. Damages are sometimes so extensive that the vehicle is considered ‘totaled’ since the cost of repairs exceed the value of the vehicle. While this may be an extreme example, as vehicles age and succumb to wear, certain essential parts need to be repaired and replaced. Some of these car parts and systems can be expensive, even after seemingly minor damage or malfunctioning.
The nature of many of the specialized parts used to manufacture modern vehicles can mean that a seemingly simple repair or replacement can cost thousands of dollars. While the part may not be exorbitant, labor costs can run up the bill for certain work. The many electronic components in newer vehicles tend to inflate the repair costs as well. The extent of damage, in addition to the make, model, and condition of the vehicle all contribute to the cost too. When it comes to components of the vehicle, here are a few of the most expensive damages to repair.
