Various undercarriage bits that might have gotten broken or dented up.

The car didn't roll, probably doesn't have structural damage, and the airbags didn't deploy. Might get away with under $10k damage.
T-case was puking fluid, assume it's dead. Steering rack looks fucked. Slid on frame for 1000'+. Et al.

How fast were you going to slide the length of 3 1/2 football fields (nearly a quarter mile)?? As long as the unibody structure isn't heavily damaged, I'm fairly sure this will be repairable. Our cars aren't exotics, so the parts aren't uber-expensive when compared to something like a Camry.
Definitely keep us posted though.

I was going ~35mph and the thing fucking coasted just over a block from the accident. I was impressed. Momentum, fuckn a.

I'll keep you posted. Hopefully they can get an adjusted out there soon.

Accident happened on 11/2/12. I was traveling behind a car that slammed on his brakes for a cat in the road. Whatever, I was only going 35... I stopped without incident, without screeching, no problem. I was firm on my brake pedal when suddenly I was thrust backward into my Recaro. My ash tray was in the back seat, my passenger side airbag was deployed, and my AWD System Service Required Light was flashing.

I was rear ended by a Hyundai Sonata going about 50 MPH with no attempt to brake of any kind. I was pushed about 7 feet and subsequently hit the vehicle in front of me, which caused damage to the front of my car and the rear of their's... I was an Evo sandwich. Early AM, dry conditions.

Bottom line, the police found the Hyundai 100% at fault... All three of our stories matched. I guess I got lucky to deal with honest people on this one. $19,758 in total repair cost, $1058 in rental car, and I'm at about $7k for medical treatment thus far. I'm convinced that I would be in much worse shape if I wasn't in my Mitsubishi.

I wasn't in the best shape so I didn't get good pictures of the accident, but I got some good ones while it was on the jig at the shop.
