as you can see here is it dangerous to keep driving it? I need to get it to mechanic but no idea if its safe or not. And how bad is this?

You need a proper assessment done on that as the structure the arms bolt to is bent and I am not sure if that’s a replaceable bolt on part or if it’s a jig job to straighten it out

Update mechanic told me i need new subframe since that one is broken and there’s no way of fixing it. So I bought one just waiting to get it replaced and see what else is damaged and need replacement

At very least I would also replace the 2 suspension arms,if it’s had a whack big enough to mangle subframe like that then chances are arms are bent aswell
