The woman actually had everything documented with a police writeup and her insurance money. I was a little in disbelief as to someone actually doing the right thing.
Turns out I needed a new rear quarter, flare, and rear bumper so needless to say she slammed me pretty good for being in a parking lot.

I agree 100% with Dan. This does help to restore my faith in society to some degree. Not only was this person responsible & considerate but she could have gotten away with it, especially with being in a commercial parking lot. I'm happy for you.
THIS IS A LOT TO READ BUT THIS RANTING HELPS ME VENT HAHAHA!
I, unfortunately, was not so lucky:
This is my sons '08 Charger 2.7 that my wife & I bought for him for his High School graduation gift in 2011.
My family & I went to the beach for the weekend of June 28-29. Mauricio, you may remember that after work, I went to the Autobruder Grand opening & I had to leave after to go to the beach.
Well, we returned home Sunday evening to find this. My sons car was parked in front of my house (facing East) & my neighbors accross the street who are 2 DUI having brothers, irresponsible, unemployed, wreckless, living off the government, Aholes,
have 2 old beat-up Jeeps. Now, the way they drive in & out of that house as if they were leaving the Pit @ the Indy 500, I have a strong suspicion that it was one of them. Of course, I have NO PROOF.
So, I confronted them & then my wife came over too. Now, I know that I can't prove anything but I did tell them that I think it was one of them. They swore up & down that it wasn't them. I measured the back & front heights of the Jeep that WAS there & they don't match up to the dents on the Charger. The other Jeep was not there but is the same style. I told them, "If it wasn't you guys then it was someone leaving your house because my sons car was not side swiped, it was a direct hit. What bothers me is that we are neighbors & we've never had issues, someone should be honest. If it was me (& I did hit a neighbors car once when I was 19 AND I told him so AND paid the $300 for the repair) I would say something. If I find out who the MOTHER*&%$ING, NO B@#LLS HAVING SOB was that did this they will regret NOT having stepped up!" I also said. "Maybe it wasn't you guys but since I know what a couple of irresponsible drunks you are I have to be suspicious!"
Not a PEEP from them!
AGAIN, I have NO PROOF. For all I know someone could have done a 3 point turnabout between their drive way & my sons car. But, considering that one of the brothers totalled his Corolla 5 houses down last year & was DUI & the other one did a Hit & Run then I can't help but suspect.
Funny, one of their cousins (who I haven't seen since the day of the incident) has another old, beat up Jeep. HHMMMMM!!
I've lived their for almost 20 years. NEVER had a theft issue or a neighbor issue.
So, Here goes:
* $1400 to repair his car, (not worth going through the insurance),
* $1200 in 18" OEM Chrome Challenger wheels/tires that I ordered as a surprise gift for his 21st birthday in August,
* Now, I want to install atleast 1 camera in my house (under my car port facing out towards the whole front of my house). MORE MONEY!
BTW, Anyone recommend a good company for home cameras? Let me know.
ON A SIDE NOTE:
About 1 1/2 years ago, a 15 year old boy (with NO license) was driving his parents Excursion, made a turn & hit my sons car on almost the same section. $2600 in repairs. So, The kid gets the ticket. My son is fine (FIRST & FOREMOST) & we are waiting for the kids parents insurance company to call us for the repairs.
About a week later we get a letter in the mail from the kids parents Insurance Company stating "we dropped Mr & Mrs ******** from our insurance policy due to irresponsibity on their part & therefore we will not pay for any repairs". I put the repair through my insurance, paid the $1500 deductible AND my insurance went up slightly although it WAS NOT my sons FAULT!
How do you like that?!?!?!?!?
So Sippi, I am VERY GLAD to hear about your experience because it does show me that there STILL are good people out there.
Just not in Miami! HAHAHA!
