I usually try and park far away from other people around my apts, but I don't always get that luxury of good parking. I'm wondering how much this would cost to fix, or if paintless dent repair is possible. Thanks for your feedback ^^

Well in order to help you find out what the damage cost is, we would bee to see the damage..

Add-ON:

Since you put pictures

That's a hard dent to remove due to the fact that's it's right on the angle of the fender.. Maybe about 300+ no more than 400 to fix that..

They may even just have to replace the fender.. Those type of dent are hard to remove.

I'm with BP, I think a new fender is your best bet. You can probably get one from a dealer for 200 roughly. Figure another 2-300 to paint it. Its time consuming to put on yourself but not difficult

Just trying to gather some assessments. Last thing I would want to do is replace the whole part for that dent... All comments are appreciated. It does look very difficult to fix it without replacing since its on the corner =/

My luck``

This damage can be taken care of by a good PDR technician, it is easily accessible from the underside, no need to replace or even repaint the fender.

I have had worse dents taken out with PDR.

PDR specialist.... no more than $150
+3...PDR. A good tech should be able to tell you BEFORE working on it whether it can be fixed or not. Which is a no lose deal for you. Should run around $100.

Usually PDR doesn't work flawlessly on creases, so I wouldn't go that route if tech doesn't guarantee you results. I wouldn't replace the fender for that either. A good bodyshop should be albe to repair that area and 'blend' the paint maybe 3" around. Shouldn't cost you more than $150 IMO. Good luck.

Fender Bender

It was one of the dumb mistakes after working long hours during the day and feeling very tired in a dark night with very little street light. Last night I accidentally backed into a car behind at low speed, probably a couple of miles per hour. The woman driver of the other car became very upset and even hysterical and a bystander called the police. Then 4 police cars showed up. There were a couple of dents on her driver-side door and there was no damage on my bumper. I had a body shop checked my car today and they said there was no damage at all.

Here is the problem. Since a police report was filed and the woman driver was overly excited and hysterical at the time, does it mean that I lost the opportunity of paying for the damage myself already? I am concerned that the police report would eventually go into Carfax and diminish the value of my vehicle even though there was no damage to my vehicle. Besides, I don't want my insurance to go up.

Appreciate your inputs on this.

You can still offer to pay for the damage yourself and not involve the insurance companies, I don't believe CarFax will have automatic access to police records, that would require court orders to do so, and I doubt a judage will issue blanket approval for outfits like CarFax to obtain these kind of records.

What I would suggest you do is to inform the other driver that Paintless Dent Removal service may remove the dents on her car without repainting. f possible, PDR is ALWAYS better than repainting since it is less expensive, can be done quicker, no paint matching problem (it's the OEM paint), and no paint peeling problem, plus you can always throw in the "It's environmentally friendly since no harmful chemicals need to be used", maybe she's a tree-hugger and will appreciate it. :)
