    A tree fell on my car last night. Do you think this is fixable at a reasonable cost. If fixed, what are the chances of a menacing windshield leak?

    Thanks.

    Fixing is always cheaper than buying unless it's a total

    Can you even open the door? I dont think the windshield will leak. The window has a layer of laminate sandwiched between the two layers of glass, so that should keep the water out. To be honest I think it is totaled.

    it can be fixed, but you would need a new post/roof/door, and maybe new fender.

    have insurance total it out and then buy back and repair yourself depending on cost.
