I think its just luck more than anything else. I just picked up three nasty rock-chips on my hood lip this past weekend; only 5000 km on the odometer. Three all in the same general region. Must have been a cluster of rocks that hit me. Two down to the primer, and a third (about 2mm in area) down to the bare metal. I filled them up with paint and eliminated the blob with Langka. Doesn't look perfect but better than before. I'm getting a clear bra put on it later this week.

My 2011 V6 never picked up any rock chips of that magnitude over the three years 35000km of driving. It was however, "sand blasted". It was covered with thousands of small (pin-*****) sized chips from sand and/or salt. Also had dozens of larger chips down to the primer.

Luck of the draw man. It depends on where you drive (highway or local) and whether there is a lot of construction going on.
