That sucks! Hate that happened to you. I always try to remember that 90% of people look at a car as an appliance to get you from point A to point B. They generally don't give a flip about their car and sure don't about yours. No matter if I am in the Challenger, the CTS, or my 8 year old pickup I park on the back 40 away from all other cars. So far none of them, not even the old truck, has a dent or scratch on them.
And people wonder why you park miles away and take 2 spots.
I know it's tough at xmas to do that. If I was able to drive mine in the winter... I'd still take my winter beater to the mall.
Worse offenders are little kids, but they don't know any better unless it's drilled into them when there young. Even then, I always remind my 18 yr.old daughter every time she gets out... but I'm a gear head so it matters.
Maybe damage from a ball hitch? I was in the parking lot the other day, mad holiday shopping everywhere, and watched two folks slowly back out of opposing lines into each other. It was in slow motion, one driver clearly aware of the other, tried to drive back in to his space, but the other, totally oblivious, kept going, and... whack!
Another good one is some people dont even care at the car shows I had my 1970 AAR cuda at a show and it got damage and I had to get three areas painted a door rear fender and front fender on the other side that when I was looking at other cars at the show Its a shame some people do not care good luck getting yours fixed HEMIB5BLUE
