My wife backed into my 2013 Elantra GLS with her car. She drives a 2012 GLS. We picked hers up from the shop today. Mine is still be operated on sad.gif .

I was going to post a picture of the damage, but hit an obstacle. Can anyone explain to the new guy how to insert a picture into a message?

A simple way is to go VIP for a couple bucks.

You get to do a bunch of cool things

Another way is to use a site like imgur.com, drag the pic and copy the "Linked BBCode (message boards)" code and paste it in here.

Got rear ended in the spring. Old car blew a brake line. Small black mark on rear bumper cost his insurance company $2800.

Lets see... my "accident" was 2 months after I got my car... Some dingleberry backed in to the front of my Ltd in a parking lot and didn't leave his insurance info!! mad.gif His tow hitch went straight THROUGH the license plate clean, and snapped the plastic bumper. Luckily no damage to the actual frame underneath.

I chose not to get mine fixed since the damage would have been less than my deductible. So instead, I took some bondo, patched the crack/hole in the bumper, and by the time my CF vinyl went on and the license plate was replaced you couldn't even tell. Well, except for one small dent on the end of my hood that I plan on paying a body shop to bend back out when I get my tax returns in a couple months.

Reason for edit: added pic to post

Wellll, last year i had my new car for less than a week before i got into an accident because of some bad luck.

I was driving home along a stretch of highway at night, and in the fog mind you. I was about half a hour from home until i hear a bang and some grinding. i pulled over to the shoulder, turn off my car and turn it back on. it sounds bad, like as if someone removed the muffler. i decided not to risk it and not finish the journey, so i called Hyundai roadside service and ask them to call for a tow truck. while i was waiting for the truck, i tried to look around to see what i managed to hit. just about 20 feet from the car was a winch for a cargo strap you see on those flatbed truck.

The next morning, i got the call from the dealership and the servicing lady said something along the lines of, "What the hell did you manage to hit?" i told them to look in the trunk, because i put the winch back there. she manages to tell me the damages total $4300, and asked if i called my insurance company, and i said not yet. i thanked her, hung up and called the insurance company. luckily i only had to pay the $1000 deductible.

i took a visit to the dealership in the rental car the insurance company provided me with, and i saw the damage to the undercarriage. i. was. heartbroken. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-JtVrw6Fxg

so it took about 2 weeks to repair, and the insurance company said i was not at fault biggrin.gif! but since i got it back, i swear the engine doesn't sound like it used to, but i could just be paranoid. but all in all, i'm happy i have it back. now i just need to find out how to get a nasty scratch off my rear bumper after i backed into a rock last week.

This wasn't really a crash but my Transmission went out on me yesterday. Spent a few hours at a junkyard today pulling parts and a tranny.

Last night the phone rang and it was my wife. She was just down the street and winged a mirror on a parked car on her way home from work. So I walked down to inspect the damage.

Well the Acura she hit definitely had a busted mirror, and the right side mirror on the GT was pushed in and on closer inspection the glass was completely shattered. Damn, so much for the neat KDM blue tint mirror with Hanji script telling you things are closer than they appear.

The owner of the Acura came out and was very cool about the whole thing. Fortunately he works for a car dealership and will have it replaced at cost which was $120 the last time he had to have it replaced. Just last week! He told her not to make a big deal or worry and they exchanged numbers. For me it'll cost nada, I still have the OEM glass ;-)

-----------------------------

Fuck. The wife just called, the total for the mirror will be a more realistic $340. Good thing she picked up some extra shifts...
