Hi there. Unfortunately, the determine depreciated value of a vehicle is something that’s nearly impossible to do without inspecting the vehicle onsite. Something like this is best left to a professional claims adjuster or one who is certified in that practice.

It may also be a good idea to have a comprehensive safety inspection completed before putting your Mitsubishi back on the road.
