Default How many dents do you '02 owners have?

I feel like I find new dents every week. To top it off, the battery died the other day and I went to push-start the car with the help of my fiancee. Now I've got two dents on the hatch, one for each hand.

Yeah the car is like tin foil...particularly the doors. I was waxing mine the other day and I was amazed at how easily the doors flexed in and out as I was buffing.

Not an 02, but probably more mileage than a lot of 02s. But I have zero dents on my car, after 107,xxx miles Im really really careful where I park lol

Sometimes I drive completely around whole parking lots several times planning where the best single spot in the lot is I even laugh at myself lol

I teach high school and have one of the crappiest spots in the lot and every day I see some new p.o.s. parked next to me. Between that and living in an apartment my car is a dent magnet.

It is not the dents that piss me off but the scratches. People just don't care one day I am going to snap and someone will end up with a drained transmission. Freaking people and their trucks.

I prob have like 5 minor imperfections.

I have about 4-5 on the doors / front quarters. I am waiting for a PDR day in the area so I can maybe get a deal on getting them all taken out.

NONE because I had a paintless dent removal guy pull them all! 7 very small dings and two medium dents cost about $175 total. Totally worth it in my opinion.

Ha, ha. That's exactly the same for my car. I too did that before realizing aluminium has that drawback. I also have a dent on each door from morons in parking lots not caring how they open doors. And two more dents on the rear side panel for which I suspect my kid, running into my car with his bicycle. Oh, and about 500+ rock chips in the front and front side panels.

i don't have an 02, but i take my car to school, so i'm pretty sure my 25 dings as of last week can compare to an 02.

I only have 2 and that's from the trunk lid swap. I always manage to park as far away from everything as possible. I hate little dings. They annoy the crap outta me!
