Asked by Jan 31, 2017 at 11:12 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I crashed my 02 oz rally my airbags did deploy.
Weird thing about it,  my car starts with no check
engine light on at all... but she won't move.
Everything under the hood just got pushed back
(tuff cookie lol) I got hit head on in front,  and my
wheels won't turn could it be fixed?

With enough money it could be fixed, the big question is, should it be fixed? With everything shoved back chances are high that the front subframe has been damaged as well as the supports, then ther is the drivetrain damage, but it just break and axle or ruin something in the tranny like the ring and pinion or not vent cracked the case, then how about the steering and suspensions? Can you turn turn the steering wheel?

The steering wheel turns, it's like the frame is blocking the wheels from moving the steering wheel all the way

My axle tranny everything else is good I think it's only the frame

* could my frame be pulled out? , it's front wheel drive n I think my frame is just stuck on the wheel but I really don't know, should I just sell for parts or try fixing I don't wanna keep putting money into it but i don't wanna give up on her, she WAS loyal but idk


You can spend a LOT of money trying to straighten a unibody or unibody-to-subframe out. In fact you could probably find a rolling chassis cheaper (same make/model minus the engine). If the damage was confined to just the subframe the cost to swap that out isn't too great, but you have no guarantee that the damage doesn't extend to the unibody. You have to be objective in your case, as you might just be throwing money away on this old warrior.

Thank you


It really sounds totalled, what does your insurance company say?


A 2002? It's totaled. Just the air bag deployment probably totaled it.
