Five stages of my CX-3 being hit while parked

Here are the Five stages of my CX-3 being hit while parked.

I cannot be 100% positive but I think my neighbour hit my car.

1. Denial
There cannot be damage to my car, it was parked in my assigned spot outside my condo.

2. Anger
I can't believe the way 'those people' park.
Hit my car will ya' ? I'll get you for any 'perceived' wrongs , past, present & future.!!

3. Bargaining
It doesn't look too bad.
Just that small fender piece, no one will ever notice anything happened.
I'm sure it'll be fine.

4. Depression

It's not only that small piece, the one behind is also cracked.
It'll never be safe to park my car anywhere, ever again.
Why spend all that money on a new car ? people don't care and will ruin it for you.

5. Acceptance
Oh well, what's done is done!!!
New fender piece $ 26.32
New shield (the piece the fender screws into ) $ 28.04
Labour (in a condo, -30 C , let the dealer do it ) $38.99
Taxes, shop supplies, etc total cost in the end $ 104.27

Got off easy - The second piece screws into the bumper piece , which is one piece all the way across .

Nice to see it wasn't expensive.

I’ve never damaged anybody car but I’m quite sure that if I did I would leave a note on it and do the right thing.

It is upsetting (summarises your 5 stages) but keep your chin up and thanks for sharing.

It's a bummer that you take care of your property and others are careless.Im thankful I have a garage and if I go out I park well away from other cars if possible.
Bad things happen but at least the culprit should own up to it.

I normally go through your stages 1 - 2, then have a 3rd stage .... Revenge.

Sorry to see that but at least the repair isn't to expensive even though it should be them paying for it.

This is the main reason why I'm going to get a front and rear dash cam with a parking recording feature. Some people just really don't see that as damage because they themselves wouldn't care and it is really frustrating to see the result of your hard work treated like that.

I have dash cams front & rear.
Very cold temperatures - everything on (defrosters, mirror heat, heated seats) and short trips = hard on battery.
Not enough charge in the battery to maintain parking mode.
Looking into LiFePo solutions but rather expensive and again the short trips have a large impact.
Hoping Karma delivers the revenge.

Fully repaired - 16 months in and it's still like new.

I feel your pain. I don't have off-street parking in Baltimore city. The people here don't stop until they hit something when they parallel park. So they back up until they bump the car behind them, then pull forward until they bump the car in front of them, and repeat until they think they've got it right. Most times, they're still over 2 feet from the curb. My one year old CX-3 has a few scars just because other people can't or don't care enough to properly judge the corners of their cars. On the plus side, it can be fun to watch people spend 10 minutes trying to park their Prius in a space big enough for a Suburban!

I used to face my Nest camera out my window in my old condo where I parked.
During that time I caught one person stealing my UPS package and another that Hit my roommates car. It basically paid for itself.

Sorry about your car!

Can you believe another hit & run today ?


This is why the rear dash cam pays off
