When I bought my Tacoma last week, it had a small blemish (barely noticeable) on the tail gate which had apparantly been touched up. The truck also had 150 miles but the salesman said it was due to it being driven to Maryland from a far away dealer as a trade for an in stock Tacoma. He was adament that it was not a loaner.
I inspected the vehicle careully and the salesman said that if I found any further damage, I could bring the truck back for repair. This struck me as me as odd but I attributed it to good customer service-maybe he knew something I didn't?
Today, I washed it and polished it with Liquid Glass. I found two very small dings on the hood and several minor blemishes on the clearcoat in other areas-I'm unsure if the blemishes are oxidation or damage to the clear coat.
I called the salesman about the dings and he scheduled me to see the "Dent Works" rep next Monday-their dime obviously. I asked him if it had been in a hail storm and he said that a few months ago hail fell in the area but he did not work there then.
Is this kind of thing common, this minor type of damage. Funny thing is that when he said I could bring the vehicle back, my gut told me that I would find damage. Am I reading too much into this?
