Definitely sounds like a broken hinge. I'd let a reputable body shop look at it. You're probably looking at about $300 to $500 for the repair. If you have full coverage insurance perhaps your insurance can cover part of the cost. HTH. -Jim


You will probably need to replace the hinges. I would open the door and look at exactly what broke. As long as he didn't break any welded parts, you can easily get new hinges from a junkyard and install them fairly easily. Most self service yard will sell them for under $20.
