Ahh... Seeing other people's damage reports makes me feel less bad. heh.

- Scratched rim on right front wheel (parallel parking)
- Half inch hole and a couple small scratches on left side of rear bumper (backed into another car when trying to turn around)
- A couple of small scratches on by the passenger door (I think from the girlfriend's purse/backpack when she gets out)
- Chocolate on the right back seat (girlfriend's 3 year old sister didn't tell us she was eating M&Ms and that she dropped several beneath her car seat)

I think the chocolate will come out with a damp rag. Most of it came out when I just vacuumed the seat. The middle part of the seat cleaned up just fine, but the side part that kind of angles up has a different fabric... so we'll see.

I also think the scratches by the passenger door might not really be scratches and might be able to be rubbed off... hopefully.

On a side note, I had a dream last night that I walked outside to find that my car had been stripped for parts and was laying on its side. I started crying in the dream and then woke up in a cold sweat. I was relieved to find my car in one piece this morning. heh.

Not too bad for me...

Bottom side of the front bumper ground effect thing is totally scratched to $%&! through the paint (pulling into a steep driveway with a large pothole at the approach)

Lots o' small scratches on the rear bumper from dragging bags, etc. out of my trunk...

3 cigarette burns on the driver's A pillar (interior) and 1 on the passenger side (come on seriously who makes fabric lined A pillars)

1 cigarette burn about 1/2 inch in front of the sunroof opening (got sick of burning A pillar so I started flicking out the roof... oops)

Thats about it.

Damage to front bumper from being backed into by a truck w/ a tow hitch. Damage to rear passenger side (rear-bumper portion) and scrape to the wheel from being hit (and the bastard driving off) when parked in Atlanta. Other than that... a few rock chips here and there.

Oh, almost forgot... the left sideskirt has a huge curb-scratch on it from me having to avoid an accident the other day (drunk college student running a red light).

Don't you just love the service dept.. if they can't hear it.. it isn't a problem and you're just crazy. I've had to deal with so much bs at my dealer that i'm only talking to the service manager and a guy from scion calls me every week or so to check up on my poor tC.

Any news on the sunroof rattle? Mine pops on/off and I was told that it most likely has to do with my issues with the hatch rattle.. i really doubt that but whatever.

No fix for my hatch rattle either... I was told that they tried foam but that didnt fix it and then they tightened some screws so its getting put back together and i'll hear from them tomorrow.. doubt the rattle is gone.

My A/C is still a "mystery" to them..


I shouldn't complain though.. the GREAT dealership has given me a awsome COROLLA to drive.. wtf.. thank YOU Toyota!!! Keep my car for a week more so i can enjoy the COROLLA!

-Sunroof pop issue. Six trips to the dealer with no fix. I fixed with a 3 dollar can of lithium grease added to the cotterpins holding up the windflap.

-Had the front bumper repainted for pulling too close to a curb $350.

-Had right side door repainted for scratches incurred at the dealer during sunroof fix. $0.

-Had mysterious scratches show up in the paint next to the sunroof. Should be able to buff out.

-Ran a redlight and blasted another car at 30mph. Was able to drive away, but need new bumper, grill, hood, front fenders, headlights, and god knows what else under the hood. Looks like $6000 so far on the estimate, but I'll walk away with about $800 out of pocket after deductible and fine. I was amazed that the car was able to absorb such a hard hit without damaging the engine or me.

2 Tickets, Broken Windshiels (fixed), Dent on right rear panel (fixed), Scuff on the hatch where the scion symbol (not fixed), 1 curbed rim (replaced), 1 gauged rim (no replaced), 1 scuffed rim because of accident (not replaced), left head light broken (not replaced), front bumper messed um from accident (not fixked), left fender dented to hell (not fixed), drivers door scuffed and dented (not fixed). Most of that stuff will be fixed by insurance of the guy who hit me because he addmited that it was all his fault. But it still sucks ass.
