    After 15 days and $3700 she went from this:

    And rewarded me with over 70mpg on the ride home...a far cry from the POS Malibu that cost me $70 in gas to drive for 2 weeks.

    Glad the repairs went well. The paint looks like a perfect match. I'm guessing they just replaced body panels? Will this go on Carfax?

    I'm sure it will be on carfax.

    They cut the rear qtr at the rear window and at the door sill, welded the new one in and paint matched to the door.

    They also replaced the bumper cover, wheel, tail-light, wheel well inserts and a ton of little items.
