There was a small fender bender where the driver’s side front fender was creased and had to be replaced, no other damage was done.
Since that the clear coat flaked and has been touched up on that fender.
There’s a small dent on the rear driver’s side fender on the back corner that’s always been there since she has had it.
It has a few nicks, dings and scratches as would be expected for a daily use vehicle with the miles and years on her.
