Lets see. Dented front wheel well from working on the car. Dents on all four doors from parking lots. 5 long gashes on the rear bumper from another idiot in a parking lot. Pits all over my hood from good old Louisiana love bugs. And 4 long scratches from my Pit Bull chewing on my car cover while it was on the car and ended up chewing on the hood.

If it makes you all feel better I have about 7 dings/dents scattered around the car, plus a big group of dings and scratches from where some a-holes threw a beer bottle at my car (it was at night, I woke up to it about a year and a half ago ) and I also have a terrible rear bumper (no dents or cracks, just crazy paint chipping) from a hit and run.

I have terrible luck with my car’s exterior, 3 months after I got this car new (about 7 years ago) I was driving down the parkway and some kids were throwing rocks over the fence. A handful of them hit my car, crazy loud. There were a quite a few decent-sized dents in the hood and on the side. It ended up ok though because the factory paint was real crappy and I made a claim to my insurance and they repainted a lot of it with far better paint.

Even after all that though the car looks pretty decent, I take good care of it, it’s just sad to see all the sores she has had over the years…..

I'm trying to convince myself that all the dents will create an aerodynamic dimpling effect on my poor car =)

I only have a dent right above the antenna, very small and hard to notice but no idea how that got there. (was there from previous owner)

The other stuff is scratches on the door and 2 marks on my rear bumper that line up perfectly, to tell me someone pulled up too close to me in a lot and left the marks with their license plate

well I have an 03 but I feel all of your guys' pain. When I bought my car the body was completely straight no nothing.

Now 2 years later, I have over 10 dings and dents. Someone looking at my car would think "wow this guy really abuses his car" and the funny thing is is that its the exact opposite. Whats worse is that I couldn't be there to witness any of the damages. I wish I could have

Being a wagon owner and not having flares, my front fenders are literally huge, thin, basically flat sheets of aluminum. Not exactly the most structurally rigid pieces. Both have matching vertical creases in them directly above the middle of the wheel that extend from the wheel well to the top end of the fender.

Whats even worse is that I am almost absolutely sure that a basebally player kicked my fender in at my community college. What angered me is that I dont drive my car obnoxiously and I didn't even know him, I drove into the parking lot and he was staring and squaring and puffing his chest out at me the whole time. I was like wtf is this guy's problem? I come out, and theres a dent that eerily resembles a kick to my fender, and the side that its on has a planter next to it, no parking spot so it couldn't have been a door.

What I don't understand is why people treat their cars like ****. I understand most people aren't car people like us but still, unless you own a house, it is the most expensive piece of property you own or at least are in posession of. Thats how I look at it at least...

After having $4600 worth of hail damage fixed on the car I am down to only about 10 dents most of which on the doors...other than the large dent and scratch caused by my bike releasing from a roof rack and swinging down to the car on a highway =P

lots of dents here, maybe a half-dozen pretty noticeable, also a few small rust spots like dead center directly above the front windshield

even worse my front bumper was damaged & (poorly) repainted before I bought the car and now it's peeling all to hell along the bottom and around the fogs, keep thinking someday when it's no longer a daily driver I'll have the whole body touched up and add a clear-bra

I've got 2 dents and 1 crease-ish thing !....

Also a few scratches and TONS of paint chips. I'd love to get them all pulled and the car repainted if I could afford it

I have more little plinks and doinks all over my car, and it seems that every time I wash it I find even more. Paint chips galore in the front. And a winter war wound on the passenger fender from where I slid into a light pole at 2mph. Traded some paint with it. Lol.
