147 accidet, should i be worried
Hi, first im sorry for my bad english and lack of knowledge in car terminology as its not my native language. My problem is as follows. My Alfa 147 was in accident where my car was hit into left rear corner with force that pushed my car into next car and directly into its tail hook. My Alfas damage was: tailgate didnt close, rear left door was stuck, also the impact went through rear door and hit the driver door also. Boot floor was warped, rear suspension stabilizing rod that is situated in the direction of driving, took the impact, this cracked open welds that are on the box like structure under doors. In front, hook from next car bent the beam that connects the front fenders and that in turn crashed into conditioningunit radiator. The bonnet was pinched between fenders. Airbags didnt open.
Body was streched. front beam was pulled back out which pushed the fenders back out and then replaced. back end was also pulled and straightened, and welded.
As a result all doors close finely and car looks as it was before accident.
My problem is my passive safety and how much can that kind of accident influence structural integrity of the car (or in case of similar accident do i end up with this stabilizing rod in my a**). Does anyone have a opinion or experience with that kind of accident and maybe help to quiet down little voice in my head that says, sell this car and by new one.
