Need To Vent: Mall Parking Lots + Bad Drivers

Come out of the mall after a little shopping... (always try and park away from the busiest lots) to come back to my car and see a scrape/dent along the rear bumper as if someone had clipped me entering/exiting the stall beside mine. This is the second incident where some moron has hit my car while in a parking lot, I mean its kind of surreal to not drive places in fear that my car will get damaged . All in all guess it's a good thing i was thinking of eventually grabbing the SS kit.

Sorry for the rant.

It is all good. I park away from other cars as much as I can, but whenever I wax and detail the car, I almost feel sick with every scuff, scrape and rub from bags to bumpers.

Sucks balls.

i always try to park beside a car that looks new or shiny because i figure that the person tries to take car of their car and wouldn't want to scratch THEIR paint on your car so it keeps them away from my car.. people need to learn how to drive better or dont go out at all..

Ahh I hate that!!!

You should see me, in school I park in the lots farthest from the buildings in the most remote places..

At malls too, one time I parked 10 spaces away from the nearest car, then after I stepped out- 2 hot chicks in an altima parked right next to me, cant say i complained then lol.

That really sucks, the only thing you can do prevent that sort of stuff (aside from not parking in a risky spot where another car may give you a door ding) is to join the back of the lot club lol

Hahah I know how you guys feel.

This one time, mind you I've only owned the cobalt for 4 months now, I was stopped in traffic the f***ing moron rams right into me. At very low speed (left his car in "drive")though, no damage except a little ring imprint on his font license plate bolt. We settled it on the spot, not worth having an "accident" record for a ring for a 5 mm imprint. But it's stuff like that that can happen in parking lots that no one is going to leave any note for sure....


So yeah I know how it feels, but you know I guess sh*t happens!


I do see some people that parks in the middle of 2 spaces to "protect" their cars, but I think it'll eventually get vandalised because of that behaviour.


I don't know... just put spikes/nails around you're entire car, no one will bother it!
