Oh man you'd hate me... I've already had mine down trails going dog hunting out of it. Didn't notice any scratches yet... But then again I'm scared to look closely. I did notice a chip in my drivers handle. Not sure if a rock came up or someone did it with a ring or bad paint or what. Anyone else had these issues with the exterior door handles?

Mine came with a small round chip in it, about 2-3mm diameter on the drivers door handle. After reading about all the other more significant problems with the pain on this listserve, I decided to ignore it.

scratches are bound to happen sooner or later but they did a good job fixing the paint.

Looks like a meteorite hit it. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I learned that if you push the tri-fold tonneau cover forward and it’s not seating at the cab side, it will skate up the back side of the cab and leave really deep scratches at the outer edge next to the rear window! Did it while loading the bed of the truck in the dark, about a week after having it home. I was SOOO bummed. But I have to take it in for oil (first 4 are free) and have it looked at as to why it does not sit level. I also have a rattle in the dash.

I’ll see what it will cost me to have the paint work done then.

It's scary to think of all the things that could happen to your new purchase when you're not around... I work construction and today I look out the building to see 5 guys standing around my truck, 2 leaning on it and one actually put his coffee on my hood... needless to say the guy next to me crapped his pants I yelled so loud. Had it been my 2002 Dakota, I wouldn't have cared as much, maybe.
Oh man...I would have been HOT if looked out the window where I work and saw that.
