It will really depend on the frame. With the motor mount broken and the motor lifted up like that makes it look worse then it might be.

Trash it if your insurance company will let you. Hopefully, it's a total. You can get another Cobalt. They're not rare. You don't want to jeopardize your safety by getting a totalled car repaired.

I wouldn't want to keep this car, when another one can easily be had...

hope you have gap coverage...or are not upside down on a loan..

Yes my gf is ok thanks for asking, just a few scratches From the airbags. The bad part is the insurance isnt covering this. So im on my own with this. I'm REALLY leaning towards fixing it. The radiator is destroyed and the supports are bent. Im really stuck on what to do with it. I dont want to see this car get junked.

I don't mean to be nosey, but why isn't the insurance covering this? Are you still paying on this car? Again, sorry to be nosy, just trying to undertand the scope of things here.
