Subaru vs my Jeep

Got rear ended last week on the way into work. Dude in a Subaru that didnt notice he not only had to yield to oncoming on that right turn on red, but he had to yield to the jeep already infront of him .

The police officer and the auto collision repair guys were all amazed at the difference in damage. I needed a new bumper, new muffler bracket, new exhaust tip and a new cover to the trailer hitch. He needed a new car. Looking at the pics, you can tell he hit that trailer hitch (factory installed Class IV, can be used as tow points) and that helped prevent some worse damage. The trailer hitch even took a chunk out of the license plate.

Reason number 124,744 I drive a Jeep. subie.jpgmyjeep.jpg

Yikes. Sorry for your accident. The Jeep did well. That's good to know.

Re: Subaru vs my Jeep

Reinforces why I keep my tow hitch on all the time. If someone runs in to me I intend to stick my tow hitch through their radiator. Only fair.
