So I had time today to stop in at the dealership.
My salesman put me in touch with the service manager and I showed him the things that I have noticed (and mentioned in this thread).
After showing the scratch on the sunroof, I was told it's minimal but was told they would take care of it. The paint indentation on the rear passenger pillar is minor and not worth going through the hassle of repainting (which I agree but I am thinking maybe they could throw something in to offset that defect). The glob in the front drivers side door is actually disintegrating and IMO I think it needs to be properly taken care of. Without removing it and playing around, I worry that removal (which is what I would like) will take off some of the underlying paint. I also noticed that the edge of the drivers side door has a bit of the material attached to it as well:
Yes, it's that ugly thing sticking out around the area of the reflection of my flash.
I also pointed this out which is just above the area shown in the picture above (could this be a rock chip?):
Service manager said they could apply some touch up paint to make it less noticeable, but as I mentioned before, I'm thinking about asking for a respray to properly remove all off that glob related material (found int he door and along the edge). Doing that would probably also fix that scratch as it's only about 4-6" away.
I also pointed out a huge crack in the passenger side bed rail cap which he ordered a new one right away.
I showed the tire (thanks S.C. Express for the tip) and they are going to try and scrub the missing white areas to see if they can expose it, if not they are going to get Goodyear to take care of it.
I asked if anything could be thrown in to offset the hassle and also for any paint defects that won't get fixed (eg that indent in the pillar) and I was directed to speak to my salesman, who, told me I'd have to speak to the manager as he has no authorization to do such things. I see now why it was mentioned earlier in this thread that some just deal with corporate rather then the dealership for matters like this.
So, on my way home I was resting my thumb on the left shiny part of the console shifter and moving it around in circles when I noticed an area kept grabbing my skin. Thinking it was just somethign sticky, I used a spare napkin with water and wiped it. Tried it again and I could feel it with my skina nd also my nail. When I got home, a nice scratch in the middle of the left side of the shifter:
What is up with this truck and scratches!
I've been very anal about making sure I always drive the truck with clean hands (don't want to ruinthe leather steering wheel), so there is no way I did. I am thinking of asking for this to get replaced unless it can be polished out (which I doubt as I am assuming it is just a coating over plastic or metal which will probably start to eventually degrade. Either way, it is noticeable with your finger.
