So my wagon got rear-ended by a Nissan Sentra the other day; he was probably going like 20mph when he made contact. His car's nose kinda dove under my car, and the biggest visible damage he caused was knocking my muffler and exhaust out of place. Besides that, the bumper got a little bit pushed in, there's a tiny dent on the hatch, and the chrome bumper trim came loose (but didn't fall off).

The Sentra... well, let's just say RIP.

Dropped off the wagon at the body shop over the weekend; we'll see how much unseen damage there is. Hopefully not much. At first glance, it appears that Bertha (my wagon) has lived up to her reputation of being "built like a tank"...

Really sorry to hear that. Hopefully the frame isn't bent anywhere. At 20 mph, the crumple zones should've... crumpled.

Yeah, significant bummer!

Hope they haven't bent the bumper mounting points.

My wife had a slow speed collision where someone ran into the back of her Jaguar.

A scratch on the bumper, they went under it also, but $3000 damage to exhaust mouts, bumper mounts, underfloor. Had to sell that car.

Good luck with the repairs.
