One more try. Find a mechanic with better analytical skills. They are just swapping the same parts without asking why.

We were deered 3 years ago with damage much like that on the right side. All new parts were used for a total of $7k. Hidden damage will up the cost. Don't go cheap with after market parts.

The dealer needs to figure out what is killing all the sensors and
the catalytic converter. Way too early for a cat to die. Probably a common cause.

Do some math homework first. Determine all services the contract covers. Then decide how many times you will use each one and price them. You will probably prepay more than will be used.

It is a brand new warranted car. Before buying anything you may want to have the car checked out by the selling dealer. Do check the tire pressures with a good guage.

Cost will vary depending on what it is jammed into and how much damage was done. Best to have the dealer or good independent mechanic give you an estimate.

It's torque that can't turn the wheels so it pushes the rear end down and compresses suspension springs. Nothing new.

The dealer may have sprayed a scented fungicide into the vents to kill a dirty sock smell. Strange that it is still around after 30 days though.

How about a quote from another local repair shop? Gas station with service bays. To be honest I would not spend a lot of time comparison shopping for that amount of money.

Cheapest would be a boneyard. Don't forget the cost of prep and painting. Won't your insurance cover that?
