To begin, I'll never purchase a new vehicle again, ever. I did not realize the many ways the auto manufacturers have been cutting costs in order to use adhesives over welding of panels. There have been many complaints regarding the "thin" sheet metal causing ripples or indentations from hail, acorns, or even waxing the car. In fact, if one waxes the hood, it is clearly evident that the sheet metal (JUNK) expands and contracts; i.e. > 'Like a soda can'. Not only the hood but all panels are prone to ripples from exerting too much pressure. This facet is not so on the older cars, such as my 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. I can practically hit it with a hammer and cause no damage. F.C.A. authorized the repair of at least seven small dents (ripples) upon purchasing a new Challenger. To be honest, I never saw the dents upon purchase and was really not looking for any type of body abnormalities. From what I've learned (too late), many if not all new vehicles and S.U.V's have "Thin" sheet metal. Most likely, this is a way to save cost, only by adding features like heated seats, touch screens, u.s.b. ports, and any other meaningless add-on to divert attention away from the structure of the vehicle. We would like to hear from everyone that may provide input to the aforesaid and to expand upon the premise. All replies welcome.
