If it were not brand spanking new, I might allow them to cheap out a bit. His was obviously was not 4 months off the dealers new lot when it got in line for warranty work. Did they just scuff and paint like Maaco? Did they sand his down and start over? Did they do his with single stage or paint and clear coat? Is it warrantied from happening again?
My dealership tells me the going rate in this area is 2 grand and they will have to try to find someone who will do it for 3/4 of that cost. So you think the dealer (that I did not buy this from) should eat the 500 dollars? Frankly, I am not willing to accept some half arshe job, because your buddy did. I bought a brand new trailer with a 2 year warranty that has failed paint in literally 90 days from purchase.
