That's total BS. I hate people that do that crap. If they find them, it should be legal to beat them to death.
Sorry for your trouble...

Sorry to hear that man... there is just an element of society that thinks that nothing is their fault and that everybody owes them a living. Even though the get caught in enough numbers, they reproduce like he**!! Hope you can get a cheaper fix...

If caught, they can be charged with leaving the scene of an accident. I'm pretty sure it's an arrestable offense.

That $ucks. Look at it this way. You may be the first person in history to own a 2007 Tundra to take claim to a hit and run.

What really $ucks is the fact your damage is probably close to your deductible, and it's an out of pocket expense. Never file a claim if it's under $2000 unless you want your rates to increase, or be put on the "red flag" list.

Man, Sorry to hear about the Hit and Run. Last year my wife ordered a BMW 330i; waited 10 weeks for delivery and the day she picked it up, some jack a$$ smashed the rear while PARKED in a parking lot! Take it to Phil Therals in La Mesa. They do high end cars there...

nah it had to happen between 1pm and 5pm, cause thats when i got home and went to leave again. its definitly coming from the rear moving forward... if you were up close its easy to tell. i think it has to be someone that lives around here cause i live on not a busy street. ive been checking cars around here for fresh damage and white paint....no luck so far:cry:

Really sucks. Makes me sick to the stomach just reading this and seeing your pics. Don't feel too bad though. I had my brand new 2002 Tacoma just a few days and was on the way home from church. Saw a Ford speeding up behind me but I was boxed in at a red light. He hit me going about 40 and I saw it coming the whole time but couldn't do anything but brace for the impact. Turns out he was an illegal immigrant with an expired visa, forged passport, someone else's truck, and no insurance. :mad:

I had about $2k in damage but there had to be at least $5k to his crappy Ford since he hit my beefed up towing package. I was so mad / sick about that event that it took me a few weeks to get over the rage. Good thing he disappeared after the police released him - no telling what I would have done if he showed up in court... :devil:

With my new Tundra I always park very far away from everyone and everything. Some days it seems like it would have been easier to just park at home and walk to where I was going. I am installing my new camera system and will add a DVR soon so it can record interior and exterior while I am away. If some clown hits me while parked then he better be invisible or he will be tracked down and arrested - caught on tape! :)

Damn! New vehicles seem to attract fools. Jealousy?
I'm in SD also; haven't seen another 07 Tundra. I know they exist, just haven't seen any. Small silver lining, you can get it fixed at cost. Hope you find the culprit.
