Reason Given For Denial: Paint was fine and it was normal wear and tear
Your Story: I have tons of small paint chips on my front bumper caused from a salt truck throwing salt but to me i think the salt should break before it puts chips all over the front bumper plus i was going slow at the time and so was he so its not like i hit the salt at 80mph i think i was doing around 20 or less at the time and so was the truck and I also have a major chip on the roof that is allready rusty but im not sure what caused that. I took it to the dealer and they checked the thickness of the paint and said its fine and its normal wear and tear. But why are the chips only on the front bumper from the salt when the truck clearly threw the salt all down the driver side of the car and all over the hood? To me it seems like the plastic bumper is cheaply painted. Also my paint job just looks terrible to begin with it needs a major buffing job and possibly a wet sanding.
