Sad to report I got rear-ended by a Barina today.
I was stationary at a set of lights outside the Gabba this morning.......then a mighty WHACK from behind!
Got out to see if the driver was ok, was not particularly worried about the Jeep. No injuries so all was good.
Then had a look at the Jeep - totally amazed. Only a few very minor scratches to the bumper - not even a sensor out of place! The Barina was another story, bumper bent in, bonnet bent up into an A-shape.
Spoke to the Barina owner this afternoon re insurance etc and she said her car had been written off.
Mine will just either need some very minor cosmetic work or a new bumper but I'll get it to the panel beater tomorrow to get a quote make sure nothing else is bent.
I'd say the Barina was at the same height of the Jeep's chassis so the plastic bumper simply hit the metal frame and bounced back.
Says a lot for our Jeeps.
