Default Wingnut is in da house!

Thought I'd stop in and look the place over, kick the tires, raid the fridge. Just point me to the bar and the bathroom and I may never leave this place!

I'm a Subie Newbie. Picked up a my 1st Subaru, a 13 XV Premium CVT in the best color 6 days ago and love it. Unfortunately 3 days ago she was rear ended. A Little Camry tried to violate the Grey Ghost. Subie drove away. Camry was towed and totaled. Justice!!

Be back later. Look forward to meeting you all.

Cya,

Wing

Hey Wingnut, welcome to the site! What kind of damage was done to the new Crosstrek? That's really unfortunate but at least it sounds like no structural damage was done.

Thank you for signing up and please share some pics of the ride if you have them!

Welcome! Congrats on the new XV and yet sooo sorry to hear of the crunch. Sounds like she took it well. But still hope you are ok and your new replacement or repairs comes to you quickly!

Please keep us posted.

Thanks all. I'll post up some pix Sunday. I was crawlling around under the rear today looking for hidden dammage and saw the muffler was crushed all to hell from the impact. Since it needs to be replaced ....anyone go after market exhaust on their XV?

I'm pretty impressed by these photos Wing. Is there a estimate of speed by Camry? The disparity in damage is quite revealing. I'm feeling pretty good about our safety. I know it's tested well and that's great- seeing what actual happens when the rubber meets the road is reassuring evidence indeed.

A guesstament on the speed I think would be between 10- 15. With ABS on most cars today you never hear the tires screech before the crash anymore so It was like a sucker punch!

Welcome to CCT and sorry to hear of the fender bender... SUCKS!!!! Looks like you faired ok ( noone hurt from what I assume) A little TLC and the Ghost will be back to normal in no time.

Welp, Dropped the XV off at the Body Shop to repair the rearend damage. While the rear bumper cover, reinforcement bar and Muffler are off they are going to install my new Tork-Lift Invisie hitch!

Wish the Grey Ghost luck that they can get a great paint match on the Dark Grey Metalic paint.

Good as new..... Good as New....Good as new :'(

Here's to hoping it comes back looking brand new! If they don't get it right, make sure you put pressure on them. It's the other driver's insurance covering everything, correct? They need to make it look exactly like it did pre-accident.
