Thomasgf,

I don't use a pressure washer on my cars. I hand wash them and I wax them by hand! No orbital buffers used on my car.

Rumpass,

Rumpass,

Look closely where your roof comes down right behind the small rear windows. That is where some of mine are. Also look closely at the rear quarter panel right after where the door ends and the rear quarter panel begins. Right around the small level as the door handles. Check these areas at different angles in direct sunlight.

If you don't have any of these dents or indentations then you have a perfect car! You are very lucky! Mine was built when some of the workers had hangovers!

My Mopar 10 is actually perfect. Good thing because its black. My 392 has the 2 indentations on both 1/4 pannels and that one dent on the drivers top. Cant really see them because it being silver and all. VERY hard to see.

SRT8Tech

SRT8Tech,

I am glad you can live with your dents and indentations, I can't. Redline three coat pearl almost puts a halo around the dents and indentations. If you have them too there is a design flaw and quality problem! You accept poor quality, I don't!

Dodge is definitely slipping again when it comes to quality. Just like the old days! My father had a new 1978 Dodge Monaco, the back bench seat wasn't completely bolted down and he found a socket set under the back carpet. Poor quality control!

Like Rumpass says, "It is unacceptable" I filed a case with Dodge and let them know they need better quality control. SRT8Tech, you sit back and I will do the work!

Uhhh, I did say I was going to tell the dealer rep I know. Do I accept that some cars have wierd things going on. I dont know about accept but I know what will happen if I try to get this fixed. I have worked for Chrysler for 18 years and I have seen "fixes" for things like this turn out to look worse than before it was "fixed". Should Chrysler make sure this doesnt keep happening. YES but when it comes to bodywork and paint, if I can barely see it on my car then I will live with it. Im not going to take the chance of having my car totally screwed up. Like I have said, I have seen some really bad "fixes" that can never really be back to normal again. I dont trust ANY paint or bodyshop near where I live.

And as stated before. I am telling the dealer rep I know. Its all good. I actually was at the dealer today and they already know about this.

I wonder if Chrysler will take care of the dent issues in time for the 2013 model year, sure would like to order the SRT next year, this is a very disappointing issue for me. I understand that all brands have there issues, but roof dents and quarter panel creases, thats just not acceptable. Chrysler really needs to remedy this, especially at a time when they need to build consumer confidence in all of there brands if they want to be successful

But really, how can you choose other than the Challenger? This is the
car.
