    Ok i just bought a new car, monday!!(YAY) Today was my first day taking her out and driving to school/work. I have to pick up one of my friends on the way. I get off on their exit. At the stop sign, i get rear ended!!

    Now i am over bearing protective of my cars, I get out of the car no major damage(a saturn can take a hit!), i leave madder then a wet hen, obviously my head was knocked off my shoulders with the initial hit (i just flipped a car 3 times a month ago so i still aint all there!). Didnt get insurance info or license plate number!

    I get to class and my teacher tells me that the damage would be about $1700!! not only did it chip the paint but it knocked the rear quarter pannel in, out of line with my trunk. AND messed up my back door alignment!! Its an easy fix for me, but DANG why cant people learn how to drive??!!

    I dont want to be the bearer of bad news but with alot of these new cars the molded bumpers have foam inside to absorb some of the shock of impact. sometimes after an accident the bumper looks ok but if the foam inside is damaged it wont work properly if impacted again.
    But the good news is your OK, cars are replaceable.
