Yes - that would be painful

Irecalled the sick feeling when my 4 day old QASHQAI was rear ended causing 7K worth of damage. The car never felt the same after that -


I really do feel sorry for them

On the A1 today nearly got hit by another car trying to change lanes into me... luckily there was noone in the lane to my right so I could avoid him!As I went past there was an old man driving, looking straight ahead, completely clueless of what he had done...

Ouch - what a nightmare. The waits have been so long that a written off car would mean another 5-6 months wait. Not sure I could take it

Well, no sooner do I comment on this thread than someone runs into the back of me on the way home today.

Bent the front of his car a bit and the numberplate is dangling off, but not found a scratch on the Juke yet. Only damage appeared to be the plastic trim underneath the bumper had bent inwards, popped it back out again without any trouble. Will get it looked at properly in case it broke anything behind it but it appears to have come off pretty well out of it.

ooohhh - thats not good

Remember to take out all of the boxes and storage in the boot as you may have found it rumpled.

There was no obvious damage externally to my Qashqai but in the boot well - it was crumpled to bits...

i am so so so sorry for you - Hope they were insured... Daft numpty - driving too close...

Good luck - Although it has to be said cars can be repaired - people cant - just as long as you are ok

It was fairly slow, I was stopped at a junction and the bloke behind pulled away while I was still there. I am taking it in to the garage tomorrow to get checked over, I will make sure I check in the boot, thanks!

Well, put in the insurance claim! There is a small bulge in the back panel inside the boot, but it is so small it could be an imperfection from manufacture to be honest. Mostly, the damage is the plastic trim underneath the bumper which is all cracked underneath, so that needs replacing, and then they will need to take the bumper off to have a good look underneath and make sure everything is ok. I've been driving it in the meantime as the bloke at the garage said it was perfectly safe & drivable still, just the plastic trim that is visibly damaged.

No, although I've had it for a month and a half now so the 'new' feeling isn't as strong as it was when I first got it! Still very annoying though :(
