    Hello TW,

    So I just noticed that I've got 2 very small dents in the middle of my hood after taking it to get an oil change at the dealership yesterday. Now, I can't say they did it as the only reason I noticed it was because the truck was actually clean (free car wash).

    The truck is only 6 months old, so will fixing the dents be warrenty, or will I have to shell out the cash to fix them, and if I have to pay, I might try to get them out myself.

    (the dents are tiny, no damage to paint)

    Thanks.

    Sounds like hail dents.
    Don't think warranty would cover.

    body damage is not covered under warranty.

    that being said, call a company like dent-x, dent doctor, or whoever does paintless dent removal in your area. you will never do as good a job as they do. it's not that expensive ($100 per panel, even with multiple dents, where i live). if your truck is that new, spend the money and keep it new looking.

    Doubtful you will be able to get the dents fixed under warranty. PDR is your best option.
