    That's quite saddening to know, especially when it's just a week old car. But things like these can happen to anyone any time. So all you have to do is thank God for everyone is safe, get the damages repaired and move on :)

    Good that you managed to brake hard to minimize the impact up front. The damage at the rear can be fixed as well.
    Punto's solid build has definitely taken the impact quite well, one more reason for you to be happy for choosing a Fiat!

    Sorry to hear about the incident. Nice to know all are safe in all of the Cars.

    Front impact is not much and no work is needed, rear can be fixed easily.

    Rightly said dumbestcoder, since everyone involved is safe, nothing else matters. Consider this a small hiccup in a long healthy relationship you may enjoy in future with your car! It is remarkable how well your car has come out without too much damage to the rear. This is also a testament to Fiat engineering and one of the many reasons why the love hate relationship with Fiat car ownership finally culminates into a special love and affection relation with Fiat cars.

    Do post at leisure the post-repair pictures for everyone here.

    Very sad to see such things happen to a new car that to for no fault of yours. The damage seems very fixable and hope your ride is back in shape in no time. Enjoy the New Year and Drive Safe!!!

    Like everyone else said, these things can happen to anyone anytime so just take it in your stride and move on without worrying much.

    Having said that, I would advise you to maintain little more distance with the vehicle in front of your car, going forward.

    Fault is always of the person who hits from behind. since in this case, your car kissed the civic from behind, I would say little bit of fault was yours. If you had maintained little more distance, you might have managed without very hard braking.
