Door Ding

So, April 25th I got my first door ding on my car. Thankfully I was sitting in the car and caught the guy. His door hit my car so hard, I thought a car had driven into me. Took it into the PDR people and they said they couldn't get it back 100% and I knew I wasn't going to be happy with that. So...had the dealer look at it today and got a quote of $1073.10 to repair it.

Called my insurance company, gave them all the information and by 3:00 this afternoon, it was authorized for repair! The other fellows insurance is paying for the whole thing!

After May 17th, it will look like new again! Pics aren't the greatest. Taken with iPhone4.

Try a couple of shops. I had a rather sharp encounter with a pine cone that left a nasty dent.
A mobile PDR guy tried, but couldn't do much. I happened to luck into a shop with better skills and that guy made the dent almost completely disappear.

Believe it or not, it was a 2001 Mazda Protege! I was shocked when I saw the damage too. I had to take a double look at his car!

I was very lucky that I was sitting in my car. He actually started to walk away, then realized he wasn't going anywhere!

They have to go so far as to remove the rear bumper and the 1/4 window to repair it properly. They said 3-4 days for this

Yeah, I talked to 3 places and each one cringed when they saw where the damage was. One place even said the paint may crack when the try pushing the dent out.

Yes, you can say that again! At least it is getting repaired. When my adjuster phoned me back this afternoon and said it was approved already, I thought she was putting me on! I asked her if it was a joke and she said the guy was not even trying to deny it. She told the appraiser at Southgate that it is a go for repair.

4 days without my car, but I wouldn't have been driving it anyway. I work all that week 12-10pm. There will just be an empty space in my garage. Might be time to spring clean in there!

Wtf! That's a crazy ding. I park so far from everyone, and I've still managed to pick up 2 or 3 dings on my passenger door. :-(

That sucks man. Had a ws6 T/A in the 90's and had the same thing happen in a parking lot, the woman got out of her mini van, licked her finger and rubbed the dent in my car. Hoping it would make it better I guess then proceeded to walk away, not seeing me in the car. When I confronted her she argued with me until I made her open her door and show her they lined up perfectly LOL. Her insurance covered it but it was still a piss off!

I'm so paranoid about door dings I won't drive my Camaro anywhere I might have to park near other cars, I take me wife's car instead if possible. The car has been out of storage for one month and I've driven it less than 400 KMs.

I'm careful about where I park, but I try not to be too paranoid about it.
I had a ding like that in my MonteSS last year, almost same story, I was in the car. I got her name, number, license plate, but when my insurance agent called she tried to deny it.
Her insurance paid the whole thing.
But after 3 trips to the body shop, I gave up, lights on the window and lock switches still don't work

As he started to walk away, hoping I wouldn't say anything, I kinda yanked him off his feet. After that he was very "passive". LOL

You know what gets me John? Most, if not all, of us try to park away from everyone to prevent this from happening. Then some dork has to pull in right beside us and roll the dice. I just don't get it.

The air was quite blue when I got out of the car, then I saw the damage and the air really clouded over! LOL When he tried to walk away, I pulled him off his feet by the scruff of his collar and said he was going to pay for it.

Matt, that is funny, I have to admit! When his door hit me, Matt, it was so hard, I thought someone had driven into me. If I hadn't experienced it, I would never have believed that a little car like that could do so much damage with it's door.
