Someone should make a vid game of shopping carts eating cars.
they did, it's called PacMan or PacWoman
A couple of days after we got ours (25 Aug) I was told there are "about a dozen" in Indiana with "about half of them" being in the Indianapolis metro area), and just last Saturday I was told there's a 2nd Prime owner here in Lafayette now... a white one... I'll have to keep an eye out for it....
With Purdue being so close, I'd think there would be more Primes around here. Theorizing for a moment... thinking maybe there's a higher proportion of Volts and Bolts and Leafs and such around here as compared to nation-wide stats?
Whenever I notice carts NOT in their "corrals"- and ESPECIALLY if they're just two-or-three-or-so parking spots from the nearest one - I find myself thinking these three words: "Lazy f-----g Americans!"
have you checked e bay for a used one? the car wash will not help you, they never do..
so.....pick up a used one on Ebay when I already paid $500.00 for the replacement. Yup, that sounds like a good idea.
FYI -- it is easy to remove front and rear bumpers and install replacement light housings.
The part for the Prime that OP bought was expensive, but it hopefully will drop in price as time passes.
I replaced a front light housing on a Prius wagon last week. Ebay was ~ $40, the dealership $70-ish.
Every once in awhile a fellow employee asks me why I park my car way out back behind the (food) store.
And those lazy people, yup. Every cart run includes picking up ~20% strays and those "beached" over curbs out far away somewhere, etc. Worse in the winter when there's bad weather or when we're busy and everyone is in (too much of) a hurry.
Yup, and lower odds that anyone's as "crazy" as you, going to park nearby. Plus you get a bit of exercise.
OTOH, what's really creepy: when you're out in the parking lot hinterland, and some joker still parks right beside you...
