Protege5+Trash Truck=Damage

Last Friday, I parked my P5 along the street in front of my parents house. Well, around 2pm the trash guy came to my door and said that they had hit my car.

Well, I respect that they came and told me because 'Waste Managment' is known to do hit and runs.

Well needless to say, I am glad I own 3 of my own cars right now as I have a few extra's... The Mazda won't be able to be fixed untill the first week of January. They won't give me a rental untill the date of appointment with the body shop.

I got one estimate from Mazda. I will give a cookie to whoever can get how much the damage is going to cost 'Waste Managment' to fix.

Man that sucks. I had some asshole hit me in a parking lot this weekend. But it didn't do near the damage done to your car.

The repairs from the Mazda Dealership after all said an done is, $2850. Doesn't seem like to much, but definetly more than I wanted! Blah.

It just sucks that I can't have the rental untill the car goes into service. I hate driving my del Sol, and now I am going to have too! Oh well, the del Sol is going to be sold on the 9th of January, untill than I am trying to drive my parents cars as much as possible since they also have an extra car.

damn only $2800 that doesn't seem right, does that include a new rim tire fender door mirror bumper and splashgaurds alignment and i would personally put the car on a lift or jack it up and make sure the a-arms, and suspension is 100% perfect. i wouldn't trust anyone else to look at the suspension part.

Yes, it includes everything Mazda would need to fix this thing. They already stuck it on a lift and so on and so on. My family is great friends with a mechanic so I am going to have him look over EVERYTHING before and after Mazda has it. Just to make sure Mazda doesn't miss something or make causes something while they have it. I know you will probably ask yourself why don't I have the family friend fix it, well, he doesn't do the greatest with paint. He knows it and we know it.
