I noticed a small dent on the chrome part of the front bumper today. Either it came from the dealer like that, or something hit me, because I know I didn't hit anything. Oh well. I expect plenty of door dings and stone chips to come.

Dang, that always sux...what I live in fear of is that first stone chip on the windshield...on the interstate it's bound to happen at some point...I got a little scratch on mine from a bush limb extending out along the drive way at hunting camp yesterday...not crazy about it, but yep, it will happen :rolleyes:

If your under 12,000 miles take it back, and get it fixed. Bumper too bumper under 12k. Everything is fixed. I deliver too dodge/nissan dealers. They dont want you too know it, but they have too fix it if you have less then 12k.

Briarman...

I figured you'd have at least one star in your windshield by now!

I couldn't believe how often I got those living on the Gulf Coast for ~ 7 years!!

It's a small world, isn't it, BearBrawn...California Titan used to live here along the Gulf Coast too...I guess you remember the infamous 'love bug' invasions of early fall-that's what I truly dread for my Titan...those jokers must be washed off daily or they start to corrode the plastic bumper! It'll soon be pine pollen time around here and that's rough on sinuses and the exterior of vehicles, too! :rolleyes: :cheers:

Bumper to Bumper for "Manufacturers Defects". They don't have to fix anything that isn't considered a manuf. defect. Generally speaking this would be something that wasn't designed or performing the way it was intended. The warranty doesn't cover damage you do on your own. Also even though it says bumper to bumper there are some exceptions. This would include wear items like tires, brakes, clutches, dings in your windshield etc. Now if a wear item was found to fail because of being defective or as a result of another part (causal part) then it would probably be covered. If a tire goes a manufacturer will typically refer you to the tire maker as they have a separate warranty.

If you dent your vehicle it's not covered under warranty.

Very true, but if you have a reputable dealer, and you have a very small dent, 90% of the time they will take care of stuff like this too keep a happy customer coming back. Especially if you got 4k on your truck. He's right though. There are some out there that go strictly by the book. In those cases your screwed. Its sucks, but its the truth..

I noticed my first door ding. Can really tell when she's waxed up real pretty.

(Looks like a mirror). So I look down the side of the truck, and it's shiny, smooth, and deep. The on the rear door is a slight ding with a slight trace of white paint rubbed on it.

I look to the left and there's the reminder of where it came from. My wife's white Jetta. She accidentally bumped it while taking the baby seat out of the back seat.

She feels bad, and I wish it wasn't there, but she let me get the truck. So instead of saying anything, I just keep the truck clean so she sees it.

Wonder how much to get that fixed?

Oh such a small world! LOL My wife owns a 96 jetta, and she also let me get my dodge. I guess us truck owners are not that far apart. We all have too ask our wives if we can have one.. LOL

That is an easy fix as long as your paint isn't broken. Take it to one of the Dent Doctors or Dent Wizards in your area to get the dent popped out ($50) and then use a light rubbing polish like Meguire's Deep Crystal polish to get rid of the white paint.

It'll look like new again and you can stop making the wife feel guilty :) ......jeez, she was nice enough to let you get the Titan, go easy on her.

Do your self a favor, dent doctor, and dent wizzards, train thier people for 2 weeks and then send them out to work on your car!!!...

I was in the paintless dent removal busniess for 2 years ( too cut throaght for me), but I worked for Dent masters where I was trained for 6 months, then sent to work on used cars, where you could have an imerfect fix, wasnt allowed to work on persional cars until over a year. I would highly reccomend dent masters, or Used to be one called Ding King, that was really good, but I havent seen them around to much lately... expect to pay 75-125 dollars... but I will say that proper dent removal is an art, and it takes patients to learn...
