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. If your vehicle has been in a minor accident, you can contact a reputable mechanic or auto body shop complete the replacement services. It may also be a good idea to have a comprehensive safety inspection completed before putting your Mitsubishi back on the road.
