2012 SXT w/ sunroof
Along with the usual ripples in the fender and elsewhere, I have dents on both sides of the roof along the roof-rails (in the middle) and dents on the roof-rails (in the middle-to-back sections), about 4~6 dents. These appeared around 5500miles.
I've read in another forum that many of these dents may be torque-induced - just from what I gather it seems SRTs have the most dent problems, then RTs with somewhat less, then the V6s with the least since these have very little torque compared to the V8s. I may be wrong, but it's worth watching for this pattern.
I know that my dents appeared during one weekend when I was cornering the SXT really hard at every turn, so in this case it was the body flexing from the hard cornering that caused the dents. I have not seen any new dents since that (currently at 8500miles). I'm hoping with a strut brace and sway bars body-flex-induced dents will be greatly minimized.
