This past Sunday I was rear ended while I was stopped at a red light.I would estimate the guy wa going 5 to 10 mph.Needless to say I was pissed and right away thought the worst.The guy was driving a chevrolet cavalier and the bumpers must have been a perfect match because there was no damage and the paint didn't even have a scratch on it.I realy lucked out on that one.

You might want to check your alignment. I had a low impact rear end collision once and it looked like there was no damage, but later when I had my car aligned it was WAY out of whack.

I was rear ended many months ago by a 17 yr old and it felt like a hard hit yet the only damage was the indentations of his front license plates screws in my rear bumper . . . I never fixed it


I can't imagine how a light hit in the rear would screw up an alignment . . . maybe unless it pushed your car a little to one side :dunno:
