Thanks to a deer, a friend got some dents in her driver's side doors and a crack in her bumper just under the headlight. A local mechanic said the doors and bumper will have to be replaced altogether and estimated the cost at $3500, including $650 for each of two replaced doors and something like 20 hours of labor.
This seems extreme to me given the damage, and I thought it might be a cheap fix at a body shop. Am I mistaken? Note that both doors still work perfectly, the damage is aesthetic. But I am not the car's owner.
