Cost of repairing a wheel and battery

Postby paulsiu » Thu Oct 18, 2018 11:40 pm

Car is 2014 Nissan Versa SV.

At the last oil change, the mechanic stated that one of the wheel is bent and should be replaced. I believe the car may have smack the sidewalk at some point. He quoted a price of about $250 to replace, does this seem reasonable?

If the wheel is bent, could they just bent it back to shape?


The battery also needs to be replaced. The car is 4 years old, so it's not surprising. He quoted a price of about $158, does hit seemed reasonable?

If wheel is aluminum you can't bend them back, if steel then lightly bent in a very local area I have rebent them back to run fine but more gradual and spread out around the wheel pretty much requires replacement. By local I mean like bent at the edge maybe an inch or two in length. If the wheel is bent enough so that you don't see just a very small spot at rolling it and rather the whole wheel is bent out of true a good amount it is time to get a new one. If considering the edge only and how well it seals to bead of the tire rubber then more than say one half inch dented in from the line is replacement time.

As stated previously fixing it depends on how badly it's bent. For piece of mind, I'd just replace it.

Batteries for your vehicle range from $70 for a generic that has a 3 month warranty, to over $200 for a premium battery with a 3 year warranty. If it's a quality battery, that price isn't bad.
