54 weeks to get first ding!!!! :(

Hi everyone,
I took my sled out of the garage on Monday to head down to the local home improvement store. Parked well away from everyone.
15 minutes in the store and headed home.
Walked by her parked in the garage and noticed someone had creased the right front wheel well.

It's stuff like this you can't avoid, a**holes with no consideration.
It sure does make a dude irritable and of course they are lucky I didnt not see them!!!!!!!!
Already have a call in to my body work guy.

I'll let you know how things work out.
Regards from Portland

Sorry to hear about your ding. I just discovered mine on Saturday. It is small on the door but none the less it is irritating especially because I am sure it probably happened at work.

I feel your pain. I too received my first damage this weekend, I was rear ended on the freeway. So needless to say I'm going to be without my car for about a week at least. Sucks too because I'd only had the car 3 weeks. It's just really frustrating, the lengths we all go through to take care of these cars & other people just come along & ruin it in the blink of an eye.

We are on the same boat, I just discovered today that my car was hit on the passenger rear fender. I didn't notice it until my dad got home and pointed it out. Damage to my car is bigger.

Do you have an idea how much it will cost to get it repaired?

I really don't understand the people that do these things. Pay attention idiots! Is it really that hard to open your door without flinging it open with blatant disregard for what's next you? And then to leave without a note or anything?

I once saw a lady getting out of her car and she swung her door right into a Mercedes. She looked at it, felt it, got back in her car and moved to a different spot. I felt the need to confront her about it. I was nice but told her I witnessed her hitting the other car and she got all upset about it and told me to mind my own business. Long story short the owner of the car came out of the mall and I was able to flag him down and he got it squared away.

Tough location with the bend on that one, little bit more cost associated with it based solely on location and time needed. One entry point so shouldn't be bad, but make sure they enter underneath and remove the tire and wheel well liner.

Tired of people not caring what happens to others property.
