Someone hit my 2010 Escape in a parking lot while I was in shopping, no idea who and my bumper is all messed up. A bunch of scrapes and a tiny bit off kilter (only noticeable if you know it's there)

Just wondering if I would be better taking it to a body shop to have it repaired or if anyone knows of a site I could order a new bumper from and possibly replace it myself for cheaper.

Thanks for any suggestions.

First off, that's terrible news on the bumper. I have some door dings from careless parking lot people, and a deep front bumper scratch from a groundskeeper's lawnmower and they bug the heck out of me.

This sight will give you a good ballpark price on a new bumper, figure on quite a bit more to have it painted to match,... etc,...

good luck getting it fixed.

That happen to me last year during the winter. I went to get my car washed, it had dirt and salt all over my car. After a clean wahsed, I saw that my rear bumper on the left side was scratched and crack a little. That is when I figured someone probably try to back out of a parking lot and didn't have enough room and hit my rear bumper... it really suck, because it cost too much to get it fix.

Geez!

I remember the first month i had my Escape, a "near new" honda cr-v parked besides me and bump his door on mine when i'm inside cinema. When returning to my car and noticed a small scratch on my car (obvious that it was him), my feet accidentally hurt his driver door and my other feet hurt one of his mud flap throwing it away... result: a damaged door and 1 missing mud flap, but i said to myself, " doh! all in all, this idiot dont care about other's cars so it wont hurt him to see those damages on his... probably he wont notice it"

i hate peoples who dont care about other's property so they have what they deserve...

so dont park too close from my car and pay attention to your doors hitting mine's or you never know what can happen to your car. hehe

Not to hijack this thread, but......Oh man....I hear ya. I purposely park farther away just so I won't get those idiots near me. Guess what.....there have been times (more often than not) when there's dozens and dozens of empty (and closer) parking spaces, and guess where people park.....yep.....right beside me. :doh:
