This is what a hit and run looks like on a Vibe :(

Post by jessep19 » Sun Jul 04, 2010 11:24 am

Well for some reason, some idiot in a parking lot decided that he was going to hit my car, and leave. This is the end result. I got an estimate and the damages were estimated at 2 000$ and around 2-3 days of work.

I know the car is dirty but I dont want to wash it/wax it until it comes back from the body shop.

Wow that sucks! No cameras in the parking lot I'm guessing?I know how you feel.. In my old car I was rear ended.. And they swerved around me and mashed the gas.. We didn't get the right plate number either..

Someone hit my car in a parking lot recently too...where did you get that cover on the bottom of your bumper and how much was it? It would cover most of the damage on mine.

nop, no cameras and nobody saw anything. Kind of rediculous in a parking lot but what can I say. The final cost was 2 250$ and 25 Hrs of work which means im loosing my vibe for the week. but during that time the body shop gave me a brand spanking new 2010 mazda 3. It pretty funny it's a 2.0 and our 1.8 vibes have a better acceleration. so thats the update and should be out of the car hospital thursday or friday.

I have a small dent in that area as well. Dont know where it came from. Im assuming some idiot who doesnt know how to park.....by the way what kind of aftermarket bumper is that? Really cleans up the factory one.
