In an interesting article on State Farm's secret research lab we learn that carbon fiber cars are very expensive to fix. Like the one a poor, intoxicated State Farm policyholder drove into. The bumper alone was $24,000. Carbon fiber is becoming more common on non-exotics though and insurance agencies are preparing for how to make the material easier and less costly to fix. Some of the past suggestions from the research center have even been implemented by automakers like Mitsubishi. The Outlander is one of the easiest vehicles to fix according to State Farm. Too bad the same can't be said for Mitsubishi itself.
