Steering Rack / Drive Shaft Costs - Fiesta ST

Postby ingridm » Sat Apr 15, 2017 3:59 pm

Unfortunately hit a curb with my Ford Fiesta ST 2016 - waiting confirmation of repairs, but should the Steering Rack and Drive Shaft be broken , Ford have quoted me R14 500..00 ad R8 500.00 respectively ! Concerned that the damage could be too costly and that the vehicle could as a result be written off by the insurers.
Please advise whether the above figures are exhorbitant ?

I would try the insurance route.
Someone I worked with priced a replacement for the rack on her Fiesta ecoboost at somewhere around 14k if I remember correctly.

yeah doubt insurance will write it off if repairs are 23K, needs to be closer to trade value of the vehicle to do that if I am not mistaken
