Hi there. The vehicle can be driven, but it will not provide any protection against another accident from the rear. If you want to be safe driving this vehicle, then the damage needs to be repaired as soon as possible.

I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to perform a safety inspection and suggest the necessary repairs to make sure your car is as safe as possible.

Q: When you did this SRX was it the 4.6L? If so, did you have to pull the front grill, fan, radiator, and condenser?
