Bent Rear Subframe..Boston roads

Soooo as we know Boston roads suck.. and once again I hit a pothole, this time it was a massive pothole, which caused a flat and it caused my rear subframe to bend.

I took it to the shop and they quoted me $1700 for the replacement including labor, do you think this is fair pricing?

Also, any recommendations of shops around MA that will ensure a good job?

Any input is appreciated!

Did you or someone else see that the subframe was bent? Or did you feel something while driving that suggested you to check it out? I was wondering in case it happens to me. Sorry for no shop input.

I don't see that as plausible. Other things would fail first. Everything on the subframe is double shear. Did they show you the bend? Do you have pics of the bend?
