Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My wife reversed the jump cable connectors, while unsuccessfully trying to start my 2000 Nissan XTerra XE (4x4 - V6). During the attempt she reported the car making some "weird noises" :-o and I told her to stop; my neighbor confirmed my suspission on reverse polarity. However, after correcting the polarity, the engine wouldn't even turn. What are the possible damages and approx related repair costs?
