Default 2002 TL Hit in rear $9000 Damage

My 2002 TL was hit in the rear end by a Ford explorer on Sunday. The
other driver is at fault (This is Massachusetts). My problem is that the
Acura dealer refuses to work on the car because they say it can not be
repaired to Acura's standards (something about a support piece on the
side of the car). However, the insurance company say's that any other
major body shop would be happy to fix the car and repair the
frame/unibody and should be able to do it for the $9000 that he
appraised the damage at.

I'm in a quandry. The car only had 18,000 miles on the clock and now if
repaired will never have the same resale value as a non-accident
vehicle. In addition, my wife and I will never be satisfied with the
repair job if Acura believes that the car can not be repaired to
original condition.

Anyone have any advice for me? Anyone have any idea of approximately
how much the value of the car goes down because if a major accident.

You might consider hiring an Independent Appraiser to evaluate the damages.
Maybe $100 fee or so, but that assures they have nothing to gain by giving
you anything but their best professional opinion in order to help you make
your decision.

Try another Acura dealer, call back the insurance company, and if
there is still a discrepancy, get a lawyer.
