Only had my fiesta since May and in the past 4 weeks Ive had two accidents! None being my fault, firstly the window cleaner left his ladders unattended and after a gust of wind caught them it sent the ladders across the bonnet of the car, been a pain trying to get it fixed through the insurance etc but finally it got sorted out yesterday and was due to go into the garage on wednesday next week for repair, however after going to 24 hr tesco this morning with only a handful of cars in the car park, a transit van cut through the space next to me while i was loading the car and practically took the side of the car with him then proceeded to drive away to the other side of the car park with me in hot pursuit.

I must be the unluckiest fiesta owner out there, makes me angry because ive looked after it so well since ive had it and now ive got all this to deal with.

That's so awful. No wonder you are gutted - hope you get it all sorted out.

He didnt even know he'd hit it, f**k knows how tho coz his van wouldnt have got through the space at the angle he took it! His boss wasnt amused in the slightest but hopefully the whole lot gets fixed in at once when its in the garage on wednesday.

Sorry to hear about this!

At least, I suppose, you were there when the d**khead in the van took the side off your car so could run after him - would have been worse if you'd come back to the car to find it a "hit & run" victim.

Sure your car will be fine - bodyshops are pretty good these days. Still a shame though.
