Is this fair to make me pay for a new bumper?

Asked by Mar 30, 2016 at 04:44 PM about the 2012 Ford Focus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I backed into a car, and left a scratch and now they want to charge me 700$ to pay for a repaint and a 3 day rental. Just need to know who thinks this is fair, or if I should take them to court like they suggested? I just guessed on the car details by the way, I have no idea what year it is.

They need to get you 3 estimates if your paying for this out of pocket, 3 day rental is nuts though, just judging by the picture it is just a repair not a replacement and shouldn't take over a day to do.

The other alternative is to contact your car insurance.
