Default Sigh...This soon?

Well...After only Having my Baby for a week, I took the time to wash/wax Etc her...In the process of washing...Below the dirt I uncovered a very irritating surprise...

Click the image to open in full size.

Someone Kindly hit the cover for my Gas tank and left two small dents...I realize they aren't Large, and many people will say I'm over reacting...But Shes My Baby and at only a week old...I purchased the Ford Coverage program so I will be taking her in this weekend to get those removed...Hopefully they can do the job well!

I saw that other post as well, no idea why people do this... Yes it's just the fuel cover as far as I could see... Hopefully it's easy for the dealer to fix/replace, or hopefully it's covered, if not might buy a carbon Fiber or gloss black cover to match the rear of the vehicle.

I feel for you. My SUV is my DD and within the first month I had 2 dents in the back passenger door from some WalMart parking lot butthole.

I feel for you. The general public just irritates the hell out of me. WalMart & Target are the workst places on the planet to have to park in. They have tries to cram as much parking spaces in theat it is pitiful. It seems that you cannot have anything nice anymore. Sometimes I wished Trunk Monkey was for real.......

Dents to the gasdoor is probably the best place to get them. I can't think of anything else that's easier to replace.

That would be a big deal to me.. I'd be very mad and have to have it fixed immediately... Those are some weird looking dents..

+1 I have a 91 Toyota 4x4 pickup...I am absolutely paranoid of parking my car anywhere that it is not in sight...I tell people that anything or anyone within 10ft is in the kill zone...I certainly feel for anyone finding someone screwed up their car...I have no doubt if I ever see someone do something to my car ..I will be cuffed and hauled off afterward...

I think I noticed a new dent in my car too. Why can't I just own something nice without someone else ruining it? Are people really so stupid that they can't even properly exit a vehicle?

Those are malicious dents for sure. Easy fix but very concerning that the 47% thinks a new mustang is the reason they are brokedicks. Sometimes you wish you had your own private sniper on duty.......just saying.

I Honestly park my car at the very end of every parking lot so it is no where near another soul...and daily I return out to see some piece of Junk clunker parked next to it Like they are trying to irritate me...I've since just started parking on end spots only, and when possible near a Tree Etc on one side to prevent damage. I agree with the thought that they are malicious dents, If the dealer doesn't cover them, I'm going to replace the Cap ASAP, What do you guys think, Get a matching color or go with a Carbon Fiber/Gloss Black like my rear valance?

OP, I feel your pain.

Came out to my car the other day....found finger prints on the hood...1 day after a good wash. So irritating when people have zero respect for property that does not belong to them.

Hopefully the dealer does a good job fixing that for you.

This first man I spoke to basically told me to buy a new cover, But he refused to listen to anything I had to say, needless to say I walked away and am going to be speaking with someone separately on Monday when the Service department reopens.

After my incident, I basically gave up. I have decided to no longer take my car anywhere that I have to park it and can't see it the entire time. No more grocery store, target, etc... And while I drive it, I will be the biggest dick ever. If they want to hate my car, then I am going to make them hate it more because from now on, its untouchable.

I am just kinda lucky I have a 2nd car. Albeit a 2000 Honda Accord.


I highly recommend getting yourself (not just OP, all of you) a good used beater car for around 3 grand. Insurance is like $25 a month and it's paid off in like a year or 2. with payemts hovering at or under $125/mo

I've since stopped taking mine to places such as those as well, There is a shuttle that runs from base to the NEX/Commissary etc, and I've hence been using that instead and just taking the baby out for fun.

I would rather enjoy my mustang 24/7 and worry about getting a door ding than drive around in a piece of ****. Use that money to buy a used blower on s197 forum

That sucks OP, but thank goodness it's on the fuel door! Easy fix.
