Civic got my behind
Monday, December 03, 2007 8:31 PM
I had my car rear ended by a civic today... Interestingly enough, where was no damage to my bumper, not even a scratch, the only sign of a hit was an imprint of their license plate on the dirt of my bumper. The force was actually strong enough to jump me forward a couple feet and take off one of interior heating/cooling vents. Unfortunately for the civic, it tore their bumper.
Are our cars naturally that strong, or was I just lucky.

i think you were lucky if it managed to tear their bumper. I got rear ended once but very lightly, he rolled into me enough where i felt it but it didn't leave any damage to either of our cars.

If it shoved you forward you better check your trunk latch. Probably wont work correctly now.

That's cause your car is made of plastic. Sometimes there are not dents.

Also it is a good idea to take off the bumper cause the rubber behind the bumper could be fully compressed, and next time you get hit you might not have the chance to be so lucky. It would be dumb not to go get the car checked out it is not your fault...

take it to a shop or take off the bumper the energy absorber could be damaged the re-bar could be damaged, the rear body panel could be pushed in, there is always more damage then you think

I to would have to say you got lucky, and i would have it checked out. I clipped a lady who cut me off a couple years ago. I was in an S-10, i was doing 30-35 and she was doing 20 or so..

It @!#$ totaled her cavalier...i mean so bad they hard to cut her out of it cause the doors compressed...it didnt even break the headlights on mine

Rust must have been the only thing holding the bumper on.

i was hit from the back by a lady in a elantra. i had a 2001 sunfire at the time. i was on my breaks because traffic stoped and i went into a skid but the ABS came on and the elantra just went into a skid and hit me. her whole hood got pulled back took out her grill. my car where is said sunfire in the bumper was all marks and a few paint chips. i took it to a shop they looked over everything nothing was wrong. that sunfire took a hit and took it very well. her pos elantra didnt.
