Looking for a little sympathy...

I know it's nowhere as bad as some have experienced on here, but I just found my very first dent!! And I can't figure out just how the heck it happened. It's a dime-size dent toward the rear, just above the driver's door window (in that little stretch of metal between the window and roof). I mean, what the... How did I get a dent there?! And she's only 8 months old! Guess it had to happen sometime....

Damn, sorry to hear that. Maybe some kids playing ball or something? Do you have a DentWizard in your area? They do a good job and should be able to fix it at an affordable price rather than taking it to a body shop.

I discovered two small dents on the left rear quarter panel of the my now traded-in Fusion...and gee no one knew where they came from. I noticed them after picking the car up from the dealer after getting some warranty work done. I feel ya, those dents are aggravating. Do check for a paintless dent repair in your area, for a Dentwizard (or soemthing similar) should only charge $75-$100 to repair a dent of that size, cheaper than a body shop.

I had my first dent repaired when I worked at a Toyota dealership. It was on the frame line of the car and caused a bit of warping to the panel. It needed micropainting done, but since I was tight with the body shop manager, I got it all done for $75.

Now, I've got a tiny dent like yours on my driver side panel just to the right of my door handle, obvious little door ding. The body shop guy said it would be $50 to fix, but I can't spend $50 on something you can barely see right now.

I gotta get my door fixed under warranty first.... stupid dealership.

Yeah, like ya'll have said - I'm planning on locating a DentWizard. Just seems like one thing after another....the little things add up to a real pita.
