    Backed Into The Garage Door, Again!!

    Oh Dear!

    After a couple light taps, one with the XM Antenna on the car, one with the rear spoiler on the Acadia, and once with the tractor ROPS, my garage door finally met its match.

    My wife opened the door with the wall button, then ran back in the house to get something for my little guy. She got back in the car, instinctively pushed the remote button and proceeded to absolutely drill the door with the car! It was on the way down, but still too high for the back-up cam to catch it.

    $500.00 for the door replacement sections, $1500.00 for the body work on the new Murano.....

    Didn't get upset though as it nearly happened to me once when the door opener stopped mid-lift for no apparent reason.

    Think we need a door-up alarm!

    Had the same issue not once but twice on the same garage door (1 of 4)! The wife and daughter each popped the same door within about a month. First time I repaired it with just a lower panel but the daughter KO'd it the second time. She was preoccupied getting her cell phone connected via bluetooth so she could listen to her tunes. She wasn't paying attention as she backed up without opening the door. This time it was a few panels and replacement tracks not to mention some damage to my vehicle. Pi$$ed I was!

    Like Gizmo2 ,,, hate when that happens ! Could have been worse. I all most backed into the garage with 3 mountain bikes on the roof rack. Thankfully I seen the shadow of the bikes in front lawn ,only inches from hitting the rear tire .

    One of my friends mother had a new garage door installed with a row of windows in the one section. The old door had NO WINDOWS a, solid door.
    She got in her car, seeing light shining in the rear view mirror, put the car in reverse and backed up, right thru the new garage door. I'm thinking the replacement door had no windows.

    No problem! It happened a little while ago so I am over the pain. It's kinda funny to me now too! My wife and I get a chuckle out of it every once in a while.

    Back in the '80's my wife had to have this little car. Fiat X 1/9. Little 2-seater, mid-engine, yellow with a removable top. Now my wife is only 5 feet tall at her tallest moment. So the seat is always very close to the steering wheel as it's her car. Our son, who's more like 5'9", and I went up town in her car and he drove. It's also a manual shift so when he parked it he left it in 1st gear and shut it off. Next morning when my wife went to go to work the seat was to far back, she thought she would start it and let it warm up while she adjusted the seat. Her feet wouldn't reach the gas, clutch or break petals. Soooo, she started the car and...... it went through the garage door. At least the front half did. MAD, oh yah she was mad. Came into the house and told me that from now on when I, yes I, drove her car from now on I was to put it in neutral and put the emergency breaks on just like she does. I went out and lifted the door off her car while she backed it off and out of the door. That night I rubbed all the paint off the car and all she had was a small dent, just one in the front trunk. Yes the trunk was in the front and one in the back. It was 3 days before I told her it wasn't me that drove her car. When she found that out she wasn't so mad anymore. Wonder why that is. We did get a new door out of it and insurance paid for it all.

    Not sure about the general population of cars, trucks, etc, but UPS claims 70% of their driver's accidents happen in reverse gear. That was as of 1978. I doubt it's changed much.
