Same thing happened to me a few years ago, with only slightly less repair costs. I asked the dealer what the post-repair loss in value would be and was told $4-$5 k. Of course, the car was fully repaired with no residual deficits.

A few years later I traded with the same dealer, who knew about the prior damage. I was given the KBB trade number with no prior-repair write-down.
