    Took delivery on Thursday and it was getting dark outside so I did not see this, but now that the car is in my garage I can see that there is a small dent above the rear left passenger side wheel. Would this be fixable by SC?

    No paint damage and dent looks fairly minor - should be fixable. Paint less dent repair shops do this all the time. Also seems like an easy location to fix right above the wheel well.

    As long the paint is still intact, you should be able to find a place to get the dent out. Fortunately, I believe the rear passenger wheel wheel is made of mild steel which is much easier to work with than aluminum.

    I like this place for dent removal:

    Dent Discount Mobile & Body Shop - Fairgrounds - San Jose, CA
