What are the front door gaps like and when opening and closing the doors do they close the same or does the catch not quite line up with the striker latch?
Are there any kinks in the roof?

I recently hit a roo. About 70km/h.
Car valued at $10,500
Salvage rights $2,000
Repair quote $8,000
Settlement $8,500
The insurance company decided to write off the car and pay me out. I decided to keep the car. The air bags did not go off.
I suspect yours will be, too.
What is the car market value? Have you had the repair quoted?
You can chose to get it repaired yourself (not through insurance) and it not be written off.

no power could be anything but probably just gone into limp mode , a plug in diagnostic computer should fix that. A car is a total loss if it has 3 or more structural points are damaged, air bags is classed as 1, chassis , pillars, roof and seat belt points are others

Advise the insurance company you have had an accident but don't make a claim until you have seen the repair quote.
Once you make a claim, there is a good chance you have lost the car.

Do you have choice of repairer ?
If not, they will likely be inviting shops to quote it.

But I'm also with discomatt, thinking it cooted.
