I don't know how long you were away from your car but my theory is ...never judge a book by its cover. You don't know, for sure, if this truck did the damage even though he was parked next to you. That space could have been occupied a few times. After all you said the truck wasn't there when you arrivrd. I've seen granny getting out of her new Buick, slam a door into someone else, and continue on without a moments notice. So, my point is, I'm glad to see you didn't cause damage to the other vehicle because...it may not have been him that did the original damage.
: Yes it had to happen... after 13k miles of enjoyment. Just the other day coming out of a restaurant, I noticed a deep 1 inch scratch below the driver-side door handle. Next to the driver side of my car was a "chromed out" 4x4 Ford truck closely parked. What an inconsiderate JERK!!!!! What makes me more irate is that the way the scratch is etched in my door... the JERK hit and pushed his big door (i.e. approx. 1 inch) against my door and my car was parked before this JERK.
: Any advice on how the fix this deep scratch? Since this is my first major scratch... maybe I m over reacting but what a JERK! Thanks.
