Please help, car is seriously wrecked
This might be kind of hard to explain, so I will attach pictures. How this happened is a very long story, I plan to take it to the dealer tomorrow, but I just want advice from anyone who might have some knowledge about it.
First of all, I couldn't tell you exactly what I hit, but seeing my rims I am almost positive it was a high curb or something similar. Both rims on my passenger side are bent, the front rim is busted so bad that pieces of my wheel are missing. The tires (brand new) are also both scuffed, but somehow they are both holding air for now. But the rims & tires are not what I'm worried about.
The car pulls so bad towards the drivers side, that I have to keep my wheel turned 45 degrees right just to drive straight. My front wheel is sitting way too far back in the wheel well (meaning too far towards the back end of my car), so I know something is very seriously damaged. Im not driving it until I take it to the dealer because it rubs against my wheel well so bad that there is a constant loud noise the whole time I'm driving, even worse when I turn my wheel or when I brake.
I would appreciate any knowledge or help you guys could give me. Being a girl I don't know much about cars, and I'm going to college three hours from home so I dont have anyone to really help me out here. My manager at work said its probably something with my front axle. I know this is going to be a horribly expensive situation, but any advice will help. Thank you so much.
