Yeah that kind of crap happens too much. I make a habit of parking a long way from the front door to avoid the door dingers.
Sorry for your ding. We all know how frustrating that can be.
If it's bad enough, talk to a pro about having it fixed. It's not that expensive.

My wife backed into a tree stump on my brand new rear bumber of 5 months I had replaced on my Toyota Tacoma 2003. I feel your pain.

I agree, Lot of idots out there who do not care. Hopefully you can get it fixed with too much hassle.

I guy I work with had the ultimate story. His wife proudly announced that she "topped off the windshield wiper fluid" in his Honda. Just because he detected a tremor in the force he decided to check. He found the washer fluid level was quite low and began wondering. He discovered his wife put the washer fluid in with the BRAKE FLUID! Luckily none of it had traveled elsewhere so he was able to recover w/o major expense or DEATH resulting from slamming on the brakes with water in the lines.

And you still find people parked around you when you come out, right?

Happened to my wife a couple of years ago, with a new car. She parks it in the back 40, and walks away with our daughter. Gets about 80 or 100 feet away and hears a crunch noise.

Someone was parking beside her and hit the back bumper. Can you frikking imagine? At least the knob wasn't a knob when it came to getting it fixed. Cash in the hand.

Glad I got body side moldings when I did...came out today, after parking away from the general population of cars, and found a sharp divot in the front passenger door molding. No telling how bad that ding would've been. There are some real idiots out there!

Glad to know that I'm not the only anal compulsive when a car is new. I've often thought to kick the door myself and save the aggravation.

I should probably look into the side moldings, sorry for your problem Frisco but happy that you were proactive to save your door.

Thanks AD...highly recommend the side moldings. IMO they also accentuate the body lines of the CT...function and form...

My wife was driving "her" CT on the Interstate when she got a stone chip on the windshield - seems like a pretty common occurrence here. Anyway - I'm glad she was driving and not me. I woulda heard about it for weeks!!! She took it to an auto glass place in Santa Fe - and they fixed the chip for free!!! I guess the old girl's still got it!!
