Well at least the same until he slammed on the breaks trying to avoid a women trying to commit suicide by running into the highway. I was following him a bit to close ( probably 15-20 feet behind him)

I gotcha. I just wanted to clarify...your post made it sound like it was a 65mph accident.

Modern cars & Jeeps take a rear hit better than a front hit. I think it was said before that the front is designed to crumple and protect the occupants. The seat backs protect in a rear hit and the back doesn't have to crumple as much. My son's Mini Cooper was rear-ended by a Lexus SUV at a traffic light. The Cooper's bumper cover had some black plastic marks on it but not damaged much. Even with the small bumper, there was no sheet metal or damage behind the cover. The Lexus bumper cover was flopping, a headlight was loose, and all of the foam underneath was falling out.

Lets compare number of classes and years behind steering wheel if you wish ...

I'm pretty sure I could kick the spare tire and bend the sheetmetal on the tailgate. I'm going to work, but if I get home before dark I'll post a picture of what a plastic bumper hit at less than 1mph did to my tailgate.

You totally lucked out.

Exactly, why would I argue with CRV owner ignoring everything besides his own opinion! I am not your member of your fun club since pressure post, similar ignorant responses there as well.

I posted facts you can't ignore, later this week-end I will post more photos with 0 damage. So far near by Jeep dealer said - 0.

Why not? It is amazing example of how good Japanese cars are. Maybe someone will think twice before getting CRV?

You seem to have a problem with reading comprehension. It was stated by a number of members that you were extremely lucky. However, your cluelessness continues to show, as your pics clearly illustrate that you are not even looking for damage in the right place.

Most vehicles are designed to do that...crumple zone. Let the vehicle absorb crash energy and lessen what your body experiences.

Not right place, next would be microscope attached to camera? Problem is that you are ignoring what I said with all your followers. Ignorance put you in trouble as I could see , I said and repeat - Neither car should crash like this Honda does from nothing as this impact. It is junk, waste of money and cost for insurance to fix it. Insurance will gradually spread this to all ...

I am out

Here is my tailgate dent, administered by the plastic front end of a Toyota Tacoma (straight above door handle). My wife tapped the spare of my Jeep at half a walking pace while trying to inch up close in the driveway. No damage to the Tacoma at all.

Anyone of even moderate strength could grab both sides of the spare and flex a dent into the tailgate by hand.

Breitling, just a question and I hope you don't take this the wrong way as I am trying to be helpful. At points in this post and some of your others your grammar and tone and expressions seem a little "off". Are you a native English speaker, or is English a second language to you?

Unless you have a steel bumper with a stinger/prerunner, the Jeep will have just as much (actually more because of the tranny cooler) damage.

The CRV is a great workhorse vehicle. Mine has 82K and it hasn't put a foot wrong. Reliable as a woodburning stove, great on gas, great resale, comfortable, etc. If you want to be a true enthusiast, you can't be monolithic.
The front of the Jeep has the frame sticking out past the grill and hood. The frame would stop most lower to the ground plastic vehicles from doing too much damage to the Jeeps front end. Most of those little plastic cars don't even have a real frame like the Jeep.

Those two pieces of frame don't do anything in low speed collisions. They simply impale the other vehicle (if you left them naked with no bumper) and the damage would just continue past them. Ive been on wrangler forums (not just this one) long enough where I have seen what happens to the front end of a jeep when its stock at low speeds...it is VERY VERY weak.

I kind of wondered this myself but then I remembered he is from NJ. Being originally from NJ myself, I know this cocky young attitude and that it goes hand in hand with poor grammar.

Im not knocking his writing because English is obviously is not his first language....thats what I think anyway. Im surprised mods let this thread go so far again...I think every thread he started has been locked.

These two were gems
