Default How can I tell if my Suby was fixed right?

Some of you may have seen some of my related posts - I'm not being a post whore, I just have some additional questions not really asked in my other posts. I'm getting my car back from the shop, it had 11k in damage covered by insurance.

What do you guys think of the idea of me taking my car to a Subaru dealer and paying for them to inspect the car to see if they repair shop missed anything? I'm not as worried about the body work as I am that there were mechanical/chassis/suspension stuff that may have been damaged in the accident but not seen or fixed by the repair shop.

Here's my car and the shop fixing it. I'm comfortable with the quality of the shop not to INTENTIONALLY dis anything - after all, they're being fully paid by the insurance company

If it looks ok! Just kidding. Listen rattles and odd noises, tire wear, and as far as the body look very close at the seams, or should I say gaps like around the door, fender to hood gap. They should be even on both side of car.

Not a bad idea; a small payment now could save you a lot of money and hassle in the long run.
