damn it - UXe took a hit


 Share

Recommended Posts

UXe took a hit from the rear today. Letting a van come through a narrow road and bang, old chap in a Meriva comes around the corner - luckily at not much more than the speed limit

Damage done, details exchanged and luckily he's also insured with Admiral so hopefully all goes smoothly.

A bit worried about this paint but taking it to Lexus so hopefully can  sort it out.

Likely will replace the plastic trims and bumper.

Hopefully the parts will be available to sort. With the current global situation I know someone who has waited 4 months for an NX repair. Sorted now but was flying around in a courtesy/rental car for that period of time. His was a no fault also.

Looking at your photos it's likely they will want to change the sensors also.

Be interesting if you could find out the repair cost, I bet it's not far off 3-4k by the time it's sorted.

Read the other day that development under way whereby an electric car charged overnight on cheap rate can be used to put power back in the home or national grid during the day.

Will the electric car become a multi use device much like the mobile phone became.

The flaw I see though is that you would need to buy another car for travel because your electric one is cooking the dinner. 🤣

Sorry about the bang Rayaan, you must have felt sick at your new car being damaged.

I shall be paranoid about mine when I pick it up and the thought of leaving it parked...........

Hope a good and speedy job is made of repairing your car.  It's particularly upsetting when you have taken care and car it so new.  What is also irritating is that although you were not at fault, by some strange logic, Insurers consider you are more likely to be involved in another accident and thereby pose a higher risk!

I agree

So Im hoping things are speedier due to both of us being insured by the same company. 

I usually take it to the Lexus bodyshop that did the RX and IS twice. The repair was good so I will be using them again. Luckily, despite looking a lot uglier, the car is driveable and nothing has fallen off yet so thats atleast some reassurance.

How infuriating, Rayaan.  And it’s clearly been maintained in excellent condition.

I see that your dashcam has recorded the fact that you are stationary at the moment of impact.  Did you actually have a rear camera as well?

If not, it may be worth adding one when you have the car repaired.  I’ve found mine to every useful - and entertaining!

I never added a rear view dashcam. I figured it wouldnt be much use to me as if someone hit me from the back itd be quite clear who did what especially when the front dashcam can show the direction of travel lol

Fair enough, Rayaans.

Personally, I’ve always been of the opinion that if someone hits my car it is not possible to have too much evidence of it.  

I would also point out that my dashcam has a Parking Mode, so that being rear-ended - if you’ll pardon the phrase - while stationary in a car park, will still be recorded and available as evidence, long after the culprit has fled the scene,

.I have also recorded a few instances of a car recklessly overtaking vehicles behind me, getting up to my rear and I’m expecting a similar manoeuvre, when they suddenly drop way back.  Presumably having spotted the rear camera - but by then it’s too late.

The point being that if that driver had overtaken and was then later involved in  an accident, that record would have been vital evidence.

Apparently EU bringing out regulations for new cars, they must be fitted with smart technology to slow your car down if you get too close to the one in front, my current Niro has this but only when on cruise control so the tecnology already there on most cars these days I would gues.

That would be OK i guess although almost nanny-ing. The thing is, there must be a way of overriding it and that would still cause accidents.

Dont think it would have worked in my case, the car that wacked the UX is 18 years old lol

I think the idea is a good one for specific circumstances, ie tailgating where you have some idiot right up your backside at high speeds. Agreed probably wouldn't stop low speed shunts, or would it, depends how the system is controlled I suppose, it may only come into action above a certain speed, not read any more info at the moment.

Sorry to hear that. I hope you get it repaired to your satisfaction.

 

Drivers seem to be more impatient now - possibly due to the density of traffic.

 

Tailgating also seems very common. I can never figure out why someone should drive so close to you and have no intention of overtaking? I wonder if they learn after rear ending someone? Probably not.

Install a Rear View Camera, place it in a prominent position and watch the Tailgaters recede Davey.
