ecudorian is cool... so far.
Question bent axle into motor mount..

I feel like an idiot because I got it recently.
Is there anyone that could fix it for a good price?
I can't find under $1300.

I hydroplaned and hit a curb, it bent the axle into the motor mount and messed up the suspension. It made me extremely sad. But if I cant get a better price, I may have to salvage it.

Do like I did when I totaled my rear end. Had about $900 damages, fixed it myself for around $200.

Do you have any body damage or is it just the driver's side axle and suspension parts?

If you post a picture of the damage it would help.
From your post I'm guessing you're not currently mechanically inclined, and without doing the work yourself, I would guess it's not going to cost less than your lowest quote. Still, ask yourself where can you find a good car for $1300? If you actually have the cash, repair may be your best option, unless you can find a well functioning car for less $$.

If you have the time and interest, you could fix it for less-much less.

A new axle (remanufactured) could run you $180, other suspension parts (depending on what it damaged) could run you $150-$250, $20 for fasteners, a Junkyard motor mount (assuming yours is damaged) I don't know, less than $50, and your time, and add on $80 for a professional alignement when you are done.

The more expensive and/or specialized tools (torque wrench, for example), or tie rod separator) could be borrowed from a place like Autozone.

Much less than $1300 in that case.

However, it's what most people who don't normally take their cars apart would consider a "big job" and you would have to read up and learn, maybe watch some videos on the internet to get a sense of what's involved for replacing each part.
