It probably would be an easy fix. I find it odd as well but cars are worth a LOT more in parts than in one piece. My 2015 Impala was just totaled and it wan't even that bad- still drove straight, never lost fluids etc. They're just afraid of going in to it and finding something they didn't expect and then the repairs pile up.I find it odd that the car is not offered as a rebuild candidate.
Thanks, I was, but I've ended up just buying a set of Blizzak winter tires and putting them on the car.
