I was thinking the exact same thing. That dent seems pretty deep to be an accidental door ding.

That sucks, sorry man. It does look pretty deep to be an accident or just a REAL careless person. Back in 2002 I bought a brand new Dodge Ram 1500 with the 20 inch rims. The 20's were a huge deal 10 years ago. Anyways, I parked what felt like 6 miles away from the entrance to the door. I was alone that far out. I come out of the store, and my truck had a huge ding and it was completely surrounded by carriages! One big circle around my truck! With my Challenger, I try to park relatively away from everyone, and try to park near one of the "islands" as to at least eliminate one side of the car being dinged. I avoid the carriage corral things they have because most people just aim and push and hope that it goes in.

Agreed with the people who say that isn't accidental. For it to be that deep you have to hit that body line pretty hard. Not just a little oops I bumped the person next to me's car.

Had my 2 Weeks and got a door scratch from someone openimg there door in the psrking lot at work. I now park completley by myself on the other end of tbe parking lot. I was abls to buff most of it out. I have a 6 year old daughter and she is very careful when opening car doors. Its more of a respect thing certain people dont respect other peoples things.

I think the safest place would be the shopping cartscollectors because most people dont bother to put shopping carts back anyway

Although I would have never suspected at a car show... yes, that's true! Last year at the end of the car show I went up to the announcing area and got involved in a conversation. As I walk back to my car I see some @sshat leaning against the front fender smoking a cigarette talking to some dude. When I said something he made some off-handed comment like "its just a Dodge." We visited a little.

I think I was even more pissed that it happened at a car show. Wal-mart is one thing but at a car show???

Not necessarily. The metal on our cars is extremely thin. A heavy SUV door swung open hard can easily create that type of a nasty ding. My son has an immaculate 2008 Tiburon that got the same type of door dings in the space of 4 months. That's why I NEVER put my Challenger in any parking lot.
