accident

Just rammed the back of someone's older Saturn.
Their back bumper is basically dented in and back hood popped out...

My jeep's fine... other then the brakes and a ding in my bumper. I hope that's all at least... fml.

But basically i appreciate my Wrangler so much more. Any other small car I would've taken in so much more damage.
Anyone else leave an accident with a jeep unscathed?

Had a fender bender in my 350z @ my work parking lot. she pulled out and tried to run me over....marked up her front bumper, not a thing to my Z...which saved her life

There was a guy on here who head-on'd a mustang on a military base....mustang lost. It was low speed, but yeah mustang needed a whole new face.

You likely totaled that Saturn. rubbermaid doesn't hold value well.

Haha ya that Saturn had no chance against my jeep.
This was actually my second accident... all my faults. Ya Girl drivers really do suck (we're impatient). But ya, both the cars I hit have had some gnarly bruises. :/

Got rear ended by a crown vic. Hard enough that I was at a dead stop and he pushed me forward (with my foot on the brakes) 5 feet and into a car in front of me. Tweaked my rear bumper and rear cross member. Essentially destroyed the front end of the ford. Totaled the trunk and bumper of the Scion in front of me. Two squirts of rustolem and I'm back to normal.

About a year ago I had a guy in a Nissan Max. hit me in the rear as I was trying to pull off at a stop sign ( he basically stepped on the gas to try and beat the car coming but I was in the way)! Totaled my rear bumper and and factor tire carrier and totaled his Nissan. I drove off laughing while he was waiting for the tow truck! Thanks to that guy, I now have an aftermarket bumper with tire carrier!

my sister rolled my Jeep years ago... her friend got thrown out into a marsh but she was ok... her other friend was buckled in and was ok and my sister slipped out of her seat belt and ended up getting her ear almost all the way cut off but they put it back on and she was alright... if she wouldnt have slipped out of the seat belt she prolly would have been alright... it could have been much worse but the Jeep saved them and the roll bar did its job

I know right... its great to hear that your Jeep will be able to drive away with little or no damage ... even when my sister rolled my Jeep we tipped it over, popped the smashed windshield off and drove it home

I was rearended in Atlanta a year ago. The 2" ball mounted in my receiver hitch went clean through the grill and radiator of an lowered Ford Ranger. The gangbangers in the puny pickup were not wearing belts and left perfect impressions of there faces on the windshield. I was very upset the chrome ball had a few very deep scratches. I told the bloody boys for a hundred bucks I wouldn't call the cops or my insurance. Mororns gave me the money and we drove away. My wife called the cops and the insurance agent.
