Tag and bag (camaro 1-vandals 0) *MUST READ*

To make a long story short, my camaro has a computer alarm and compustar dash cam system. So a couple mins after parking, walking to the entrance of the mall, my alarm went off. So of course I go back and check and a van with a family comes out. So at a distance I stand and stare at them to let them know that's my car they just hit. I didn't check what happened to the car until I was too paranoid walking around in the mall to see what happened. So at the camaro I see the door ding they put in there with paint missing and all. So of course I blow my top but I thought smart and went into detective mode, taking pictures. I left a note behind explaining what happened to include what there options were and a call back number. So after intercepting the driver, I calmly told him what he knowingly did and he started stuttering and looking down. So he asked how much it would be to do the repair and he didn't believe what I was telling him. so both of us drove to the chevy dealer and got the estimate for $550 to repair the driver door. He ended up paying because he didn't want the police involved after I had him on camera hitting my car. Glad I got the W bc I refused to pay for anything.will add pics later.

Vandal or just a guy who thought he could get away with it?

Either way, that guy is a scumbag.

So is the dent in the door going to be painted for $550 or is the dealer using pdr & touch up paint? For some reason I feel sorry for the family that was in the van that just got ripped by a dealer quote of $550...You're in a mall parking lot, accidents happen. Why park there? Yea it sucks you got a dent and need a little touch up, and people should respect others property and all, but looked where you parked!....

I fix dents for a living and still park away from everyone.

Some of us need groceries and clothing and toilet paper.

We aren't all able to walk a mile to the store to walk a mile in the store to walk another mile back to the car.

That's a lot of trouble for a...scratch...that's dwarfed by those dirt spots on the fender.
Like some touch up paint and a little time would fix that. $550 was a rip to an almost innocent family. Kind of a dick move to them. Yeah sure I would be pissed, but I would feel worse making them pay $550 to fix such minor damage to already cheap paint.

I don't know... I see both sides. Yeah, $550 is high, it's a lot to pay. But then, they shouldn't be banging doors in parking lots. Who knows how many other times they did it and got away with it? I don't bang doors, do you? So they got screwed... they caused it themselves.

If I go to the store in my Camaro and such store doesn't have any safe parking spots, I go somewhere else.

I would have went to a shop and got them to fix it for a fraction of the cost, it's just a little ding. I wouldn't sleep easy knowing that I just took 550$ from a family for something so small. Yes I believe the guy should pay and that he's an ass for not caring but come on dude, no need to break their bank for this.

I don't feel sorry for the family. If they pay the price, then maybe there's a lesson in there that can be passed on to their kids. If you can't afford it, then stay at the house or get a better paying job. Why does the victim have to shoulder any burden on this?

Sure, it probably wasn't intentional, but the carelessness of slinging open doors comes with a price. $550 in this case. Pay up or educate the family on parking lot etiquette.

And DON'T park any car in public parking garages, etc., where this has a probability of happening if you can at all help it.

did he pay you cash on the spot? or write a check?

I'm sure I'm not the only person who had the wind grab their door and accidently strike the car next to mine... I'd hate to drop $550 every time that happens. Expect dings if you park next to cars... that's why I park in the boondocks.

What is the difference , cash /check
He most likely paid it strait to the dealer , that's what the OP should have ask to be done
By doing it that way , if the guy try to cancel that check , he would be in a much bigger problem and would have start the all thing over again

If one of you had a dent that little and I said I'll fix it for $550, would you pay me for it? I don't think any of you would. I guarantee you would say it's a rip for sure, because I could fix that tiny dent and it would be perfect in less than 1 minute and be done with it.

I'm just saying, it could have been handled differently. Especially if one of the kids did it. I'm sure the family could have done a lot more with $550 then fix that dime sized dent.

The word "vandal" implies they did it on purpose.

That's why I don't drive my Camaro to malls...grocery store or errands...and if I did..I park far away from everyone and walk.

You can't have nice shit without someone mucking it up....and it's always someone with a POS car that is the offender.
