I haven't even had my V for two full weeks - barely 500 miles on her, and BAM I get rear-ended yesterday. I'm still crying inside...
Basically, idiot on a bicycle decided to try to cross in front of us just as we got the green light. I saw him just as I started and then stopped. Just as i took my foot off the brake again a van came up behind me, didn't even brake, and slammed into me. From the way I was jerked from the impact, I'm gonna guess they were doing 45-50 when they hit me. Knocked me into the intersection. I can't get good pics of it, but the bottom of the bumper is bent around the exhaust. Both lights are dislocated and one is broken. Whole bumper will probably have to be replaced. As I said... Still crying inside. Not sure what's more painful - my incredible whiplash pain today or the thought of my damaged car before I have even gotten a tag or made a payment. .
I have to say though... I am extremely impressed with how my car looks after the impact. I feel like it at least looks like little damage for the impact it took. Maybe it's because I didn't have my brake on at that exact moment, so there was less resistance, but still. My old scion would have been crushed.
