I havent driven my new car all weekend. This am I pulled it out of the carport, washed it, and went to breakfast.
I parked in an empty lot next to the diner. No other vehicles around.
When I came out, I walked around the car, and saw a ding that actually chipped the paint on the passenger door.
I am so ticked off! It seems that every time I take this car out, somebody bangs it somewhere.
I make it a point to park far away from anything, yet some one inevitably parks right next to me, and bangs my car.
I'm starting to think the car is cursed (ran over a dead deer on the interstate the first week I had it).
I'm seriously thinking of selling it.

You too? I bought a new truck last October. Within less than a month there was 2 little marks and dents in the driver's side rear door. Body guy looked at it for all of 1/2 second, and said, "shopping cart dent". Now, I think I go out of my way to be nice to this truck. It doesn't go off road, etc. But I can't keep the dents and scratches off of it. Same thing with my last one. After I'd had it 1 year, I had accidentally backed it into something in my garage, multiple scratches, and the windshield cracked 'cause of a rock ding. Really chaps my ass.....

Years ago I had a really raggedy truck. I'm talking Beverly hillbillys truck. I could park that in a crowded parking lot and when I came back out there wouldn't be a car within 10 spaces of it. Loved that old truck.

This past Sept. I bought my Jeep Patriot. I got the new car ding and chip discount by buying it a year old!

My Daddy always said anytime a man buys a new truck he should just go ahead and put a big scratch in it right then. That way he can get it over with, quit worrying about it, and enjoy the truck as a truck.

I know how you feel. Lucky for me, my truck is about 14 years old and the paint is not all that great. I did notice the other day that someone must have turned just a little too early or late getting into a parking spot because I have a 4 inch dent right in front of the back bumper.

Yeah that's one good thing about having an older truck. Mine had some crash damage in the front, (everything worked), crash damage on the bed, PLENTY of scratches, dents, dings, etc. I bonked it good one day with a log, and just shrugged. Whatever. LOL.

Thank goodness, I thought you had been peed on.

There are definitely advantages to driving older vehicles.

The car is 14 years old, but it was garage kept, and only had 2 minute dings on it.
It looks like it just came from the dealership. I'd like to keep it that way for a while.
