VR Berlina V6
So, here I was driving to uni this afternoon, minding my own business but then a lady driving a rav 4 in the left hand land next to me decides to merge into the right lane (my lane) without looking at all, directly into the side of my VR. Scratched and dented the rear panel that meets up with the boot, the rear passenger side door and the front passenger side door. They will all need panel beating and respraying by the looks of it. I was pretty pissed off but she admitted it was her fault, we swapped details etc.

Hopefully insurance wont be hard to deal with. I dont like driving a car that looks like it hasnt been looked after. There was a few small scratches on the door at the time, so I guess its good that they will be getting fixed.

Ill get pics up when I get home.

Get in the ute
sad to hear mate,

but at least she was insured, and hopefully after a couple of phone calls and quotes, you'll have a hire car, and your car will look shinier than ever!

Rav 4 drivers must suck everywhere.

One did the exact same to my dad, and claimed she was in the right...

Anyways, hope all works well for you... With the panel beating etc.

Wow. I had my only accident in my VR about 2 years ago and it was by a silver Rav 4 running a red light, hit me in the back passenger door. Bout $4k damage (insurance). Spun me 180.

Whats with the Rav 4's. Bad drivers or bad cars?

Whenever there is someone who posts up an incident about a 4WD.. whether it's accident (life dangering) or law breaking.. there's always a thread about it where bunches of people pipe up saying how much they think they should be taken off the road.. im simply saying "lets wait for it".

wow, one crazy VL driver. RAV4's are tuff, my friends sister knocked over a brick fence, there was only a couple of scratches on thr bumper bar, no dints or broken bits, I was amazed.

My dad hit my door (Rear Right) while reversing, the whole door was pushed in and had to get replaced, and my dad's Camry (1992) had a little scratch on his rear bar which we touched up with white paint.
