Thanks to a careless driver, I now have an ugly scrape along my right rear quarter panel and damage to the associated wheel. No one was hurt. Without the right-of-way he turned out into oncoming traffic all the way into the middle lane where I was driving. I tried to swerve but came up a fraction short on my reaction time. At the very least I saved both vehicles from significant damage and possible injuries to one or both of us. I was initially pissed-off but kept my cool. Now I’m just disappointed that I can’t own a new vehicle for 6 months without some negligent person damaging it. Such is life, accidents happen, but it is going to suck having to drive around a truck that now looks like crap until his insurance company approves the $2000 damage estimate and they can start doing the repairs. They want to replace the whole body panel and wheel so I hope there will not be a long wait for Nissan to send those parts out. Has anyone had to replace any Titan body panels and if so did you wait long for the replacement body parts?

Man, THAT does BITE! As you said, "Such is life, accidents happen", unfortunately there's usually not much we can do about.

Glad you're safe, and hope all gets rolling quickly!

Thanks guys. Every time I look at that scrape I want to scream. At least I have his insurance willing to give me a truck rental when it is in the shop so I can still do my job. Hopefully, it will go in on Tuesday or Wednesday and take no more than a week.

Yeah, stuff like that is going to happen, but what really gets me is the fact that there are so many morons on the road today! I'm sincerely sorry to hear about the damage to your truck. I hope the body shop does you justice.

The damage starts just in front of the wheel on the panel and goes back toward the side of the bumper. They will probably end up buffing out the scratches on the bumber.

I've had my truck in for the body repairs almost 2 weeks now. I dropped by their shop today and they had the whole bed off the truck. They said they had to remove it to replace the right rear body panel. Almost didn't recognize it as my Titan. If I had a camera I would have taken some pics. The thing looked naked without the bed on it. I really hope I get it back by Saturday because I want to spend the weekend installing my Flowmaster cat back exhaust as well as the Carbotech brake pads and Crown SS brake lines. It's killing me to keep seeing those things just lying around unused.

I hope you get it back today. Your lengthy body shop saga is what I don't want happening to me. I know on mine they're waiting for one part that had to be reordered because the original one was received damaged. They are expecting it in today or tomorrow.

Saw a Red Brawn KC in a 30 mph head on with a full size van a few days ago. Almost wanted to cry. :( Still had temporary tags on it.

Probably the result of an ex Hemi owner driving a real powerfull truck for the first time and it got away from him. They should put a warning label on the window for these old Hemi owners. LOL

Well, the part isn't coming in until next Tuesday now. So much for adding the mods to my truck over the weekend. Looks like I have to learn to live with the F-150 loaner for a few more days. :(

Thanks m4ck - I know better than to dedicate much emotion to this type of stress. I was looking forward to escaping for a few hours on Saturday to work on my truck. I'll just have to push that back another weekend.

I used to have a Dodge Ram traded it for the Titan. Best thing I ever did.
