Impact Depressions

Well, for only 4 months old and 4,500 mi. I feel under attack from the elements! A rock chip to the window two weeks ago, a gubbered up wheel from a nasty curb, and then an 85mph storm on Sunday.

My neighbor's tree fell on my car. If it wasn't for the cover it would have been scratched to hell. I did, however, get several non paint-breaking impact dents. Some on the front and rear quarter panels, some on the roof, and some on the tower between driver/RP windows.

Just curious how they are removed. I believe I heard that in some cases holes are drilled to access them and then plugged. In other cases they have to "buff and repaint (?)" I think he said. I'm having the dealership do it.

I guess I can't keep it showroom perfect forever, but right now it is!

No liability in Michigan either. I'm stuck footing the bill, whatever that will cost...

Check your homeowners insurance. In some states if you can prove your neighbor had a diseased or dead tree and didn't remove it, he could be liable.

No liability is such a bull**** law. Thank God I live in Texas. My friend is stationed in Hawaii... They t boned a 16 year old and the 16 yr old had to pay for his own car, even when it's obviously their fault. Because it's a no liability state. Dumbest **** I've ever heard.

Yes I edit my posts a lot, auto correct likes to sabotage me!

This should be covered by comprehensive insurance. You'll still have a deductible but that's all you should pay. Unless it would jack your rates to have a claim... Dunno. This would be what garages are for I guess or put up a carport? I'd really look closer into your laws and your homeowner's insurance and see if there is anything that can be done.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
