(Well it's not 11 days old, I've had the car for 11 days.)
A bit aggravated today. I found a small dent on my car in the oddest place. The flat area above the left rear wheel, parallel with the road, which I call the shelf. Something had to fall on it or it was purposely done. No paint chip or scratch. :( :angry:

first one is the worst one. Always thought you should just take a hammer to your door the day you buy it and get the first one yourself.

Doing it yourself DOES NOT make it any better, had mine 6 months and backed into something in the dark at midnight that wasn't supposed to be there. I bawled my eyes out for 2 hours, and then for about 2 weeks if anyone mentioned it. That was January 28th, and I am just now getting to the point that I don't get sick to my stomach when I see it. Not fixed yet, insurance deductible makes it so I have to do it out of pocket, kinda hoping someone just hits me.

Sorry to hear about it. Nothing takes the "new" off of a car like the first ding. Karma to the guily party!!

Unfortunately it is something you'll have to get used to. Over the course of 3 years I've had 4 small dents appear on my passenger side. Sucks but what can you do?

Try having your car 6 weeks...AND at car wash....an employee doesn't "see" the door open and drives a HUGE Dodge Hemi truck into it.$4K in damages...I cried...an older gentleman waiting for his car....saw my tears and said...."it's only a car"....under my breath I said...."then why the HELL couldn't it have yours"

chapel...I know, but I never do get used to it. I am a car fanatic. I get a new car every
2-3 years and I don't lease because I always say I'm keeping this one. I loved each and every car but always needed a change and everyone of them wound up with some ding and it really bothered me.

I went to the dealership and showed the GM the dent. He said maybe an acorn fell on it. Then he said that he'd take care of it at no charge. I was really surprised. Have to bring it in on a Monday morning when his "ding girl" is there. Hoping I can find the time within the next two weeks. Happy, as long as she does a good job! lol
