First of all, please forgive me if I use wrong terminology here. I'm new to all of this so bare with me. I'm not sure if this is even the correct place to post this thread.
So last week I took my 2013 Taco to the dealership to have them debadge it. I looked on TW as to how to DIY but its been really cold and I just didn't feel comfortable doing it myself as I was afraid I might scratch the paint. Took my rear bumper to a guy today to have the chrome sandblasted off and painted to match the truck (I hate chrome). While I was there I noticed the outline of the badges that I hadn't seen before. It looked liked dust had adhered to the area maybe where the sticky from the tape was not properly removed. I pointed it out and as he examined it closer he found paint chips that had touch up paint on them. The chips were on both doors and the tailgate. Grant it they were small and I didn't even notice them when I picked the truck up from the dealership. But the point is that they scratched the truck and knew it. Then tried to cover it up and didn't even tell me.
I took the truck back to the dealership today and let them know I was PISSED OFF about the whole thing. They offered to take care of all 3 panels,repaint and clear coat for me. But here is my de lima. The guy thats doing my bumper estimated it would be $800-$900 to do the 3 panels. I told the dealership I may just want them to pay that and take it to someone else because I didn't trust them anymore. So knowing I will get rock chips in the future and didn't even notice it to begin with. Would you have the dealership repaint it. Or would you take the $ and invest it into mods for your truck.
Sorry for the long post. I'm just really looking for some answers here.
