2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer QuestionsRefine by vehicle
we owned our vehicle for 3 hours before a lady mashed the front end of it. The guy that towed it said that he was sure this vehicle had frame damage and to make sure they check it. So, when the adjuster looked at it, he stated that the hood was too mashed for him to even get it open and he couldn't crawl under the vehicle, so he said that the body shop would check the frame. Well, the body shop has tried to make the front end of my car line up and it will not. I have had it back to them 7 times and he finally said that he didn't know what the problem was. I asked him if he checked the frame and he said, "No" but that he could tell by looking at it that the frame was fine. He said that he didn't own a frame machine to put it on and check, so I contacted the 3rd party insurance who is having to pay for this, and they sent the adjuster back out. The adjuster said that it was a horrible job as far as the repairs go, so I asked him if the frame could be damaged and he said the body shop should have checked that. I told him that they didn't but tried to put it back together anyway. He crawled under the car and then said well I don't see any frame damage, so that's all we can do about it, even though my car will not stay together, literally, and everything is uneven in the front, the bumper has ripples all in it, like its just jammed in there, there is a 2 inch gap under one headlight, and only 3/4 inch gap under the other one. I keep telling them to check the frame and they say that they can tell by looking that the frame is ok. I think because they paid this body shop to fix the car, they are afraid there is going to be frame damage and they refuse to have it checked, but someone said that if there was something called core support damage, then 99% of the time there is frame damage, and the core was mashed and had to be completely replaced, what do you think about this? Thank you

Trailblazer not to start?
The gauges will be well beyond the full side and they will just point directly down. Once the gas is low, the gas light will come on, but the gauge doesn't necessarily always respond.
Fuses good turn signals good hazard good the lower brake light didn't work 3rd brake light did replaced bulbs and lower brake light work but 3rd brake light doesn't work now
power steering seems to function fine when turning to the left, but steering to the right is very hard. I tried left-right-left-right turning with the vehicle in 1st gear to keep the RPMs up. This had no affect on the steering.
