got my first ding today!

I can't believe it! Truck is less then 2 months old& already have a ding on my rear passenger door!!! I went to a place that does paintless dent removal, and they said they might have to drill a small hole on the inside edge of the door to get it out.got a ballpark price of $175! Ding is about an inch long on the bottom of the rear passenger door! Not sure what to do!should I leave it? I don't want to drill a hole in the door! I'm probably overreacting, I mean dings and scratches build character right? I'm sure I'll get more over the years, although I hope not!!

you'd have to be a millionaire to get every little ding fixed that you will get over the years at $175 a pop!!!

the first ding is always the hardest, now that you have one the rest wont be so bad

I know I'm going to get more in the future (although I hope not! )but, my last truck was black, and it showed everything! So I thought silver would be better! But I guess if you know it's there! You know it's there! Like a few other posters have said, the first one is the hardest! Hopefully, the first, and the last!!!

Hey i would get another price on the dent removal, they only drill a small hole about the size of a dime to get their tool in and then put a small black plastic plug like the ones on the front doors from the factory. I had a couple done for like $125 but prices vary in every state, just check with another shop to compare, i always try to find a end parking spot or walk a long ways, but there's always some douche that can't park right.

I think the dent repair quote you got was too high. I had my truck done about a year ago (the truck is 11 years old, so even though in really good condition, it had it's fair share of little dings all the way around). The guy who did it quoted $65 minimum to come to my house or office and fix one dent, and then added from there for extras, about $20 or so per ding, depending on size. He probably fixed about 6 dings, all about 1 to 2 inch diameter, and the total was $120.
The holes that he drilled are very small, maybe 1/4", and he used rubber plugs to seal them, so it does not really look out of place. The holes are on the inside where the lock is, so you don't really see them anyway.

^^^That being said, I would say wait until you have more and have them all done at the same time, say every 3 years or so, so you get the multiple ding discount (economy of scale)

Sorry that it happened, that sucks and it hurts.

But if it makes you feel any better, mine got HIT by my ex-friend who backed into it, did $3500 damage and then left without letting me know. The only reason why I busted her is because I knew who parked where in the employee parking lot and I called her. She refused to answer the phone but she returned to the scene of the crime and said she didn't think she did any damage so she left.

Yeah...I hate that as well. Seems no one respects others property. I intensionally park away from everyone, usually in a curbed spot to avoid as much crap like that as possible. I was doing errands last summer and parked WAY out in an isolated spot. While walking back to my truck a mini-van pulled up and parked right next to my Tacoma. I hurried up a bit to witness this "princess" of a woman squeeze her F$% ars and van very close to my truck. Really? I asked her of all the places to park and WHY did she feel it necessary to park so close to my vehicle.

This princess, munching on a Twinkie or some pastry didn't skip a beat and said, "Well darl'n this is such a pretty thing I thought I would get a good view."

Thankfully her and her minions didn't ding it...I would have...well probably had a fit landing me in jail.

People suck, don't they? I always make sure I put shopping carts back, and never hit anyones door while exiting my truck, common courtesy, it's really not that hard!

There is no common decency anymore. I witness people sneezing without covering up, crap like blocking your way through the grocery store because they haven't seen "Betty" since the morning, people cutting in line at the store, door dings, and above all, people feel they are entitled to whatever because they are simply 'here.'

I was raised to respect others and the belief that you need to work hard and earn you way in life. I guess I'm too old to 'get' the mentality of these younger folks.
