I just bought my car a week ago, and i wake up (well was woken up) to find this shit. I'm on kind of a busy street, so i'm keeping my eyes open. But does anyone have any ball park figure on repairs?

Holy crap dude. That sucks major balls. Brand new too. I would see wat the insurance is gonna say. Hey... Maybe your car is still under the dealership insurance which they provide for a month. Just a thought. But good luck!

That sucks, I used to park on the street at my parents house and always feared I would wake up to my baby being smashed by a school bus or trash truck.

Hopefully they'll just have to replace the door, but I'm sure that won't be cheap.

I also think that someone backed into it. I'd be watching anyones cars coming and going from across the street. Also check with any neighbors, maybe someone saw something or heard something. I "HATE" people that do damage to someones car, then just drive off like its nothing!!!!!!!!!! People like that are real a-holes! I feel for ya! I'd be really pissed off too!

would have never happened if ford would have left the trim strips....

Nah but in all seriousness dude, you're lucky its just the door and a little bit on to the quarter, a little bit further back and your talking $3k to fix that. Does the door open?

Yea it sucks, I have full coverage, it's just a pain in the ass. I'm in the Marines and i leave in two weeks so its a pain. The street is pretty busy and it got backed into.

i hate people that park on the street, they are always in the way in my opinion. HOWEVER, i would never go as far as doing this to someones car. its prolly gonna be one of those repairs that cost an ungodly amount to fix, but insurance may bail you at, that is if you deductable is low enough, most people have a 500 dollar deductable, but if you plan correctly, then ive seen some with 250. even with a 500 ded. thats gonna be cheaper than what that door is going to set you back out of pocket.

People have to park on the street or would you rather have them park their car in your front yard? Anyhow, that is a pretty substantial damage and it had to have been backed into. If you didn't move your car before you took those pics, I would be knocking on the door of the house across the street. That's why I try to stay away from driveway entryways, but sometimes you have no other option but to cross your fingers and keep peeking out your window every three seconds.

One final note, even if Ford left the door strip on, there's no way in hell that in would have prevented this. The center of the hit is right beneath the door handle.

Good luck getting that resolved brother.

my brother sorta had the same thing happen to his 01 SE. He was parked on the street and he came back to his car and the rear door was smashed, someone backed into it and of course just took off. But his wasnt a week old, i would of been pissed like you and probably would of cried.

Thanks guys. All the estimates i have are between 1400 and 1800 dollars. I'm pretty sure my deductible is 500 dollars, i'm calling today. The street is real busy, and our driveway is full. So i have to park in the street, and what sucks is i usually park in front of my driveway but it was taken so i park down one. And surprise. I asked the people whos driveway it was lined up with, but so many random people just use these driveways to turn around i'm afraid ill never find out who did it. [?|]
