As the title said, my car was driving at normal speed on the highway, a stone flew over, and when I got home I saw a hole, yes, as if it was penetrated by a bullet, you can imagine this car How thin my body is, I don't know who to look for! I don't think I should pay for this repair. I don't know anyone who has suffered the same as me. Please tell me a reasonable solution! Thank you!

哈哈， 我刚刚在找关于我的Honda Odyssey的问题，竟然就看到你发帖！ 哈哈 好巧嗄 我是Frank那个朋友
Joking aside, I have to agree with this. I cut and form sheet metal of similar gauge (16 Awg down to 30 awg) on a daily basis and part of those activities involves making holes using the sharp end of a flat head screw driver and striking it with an 8oz hammer. In order to make a hole that big with one blow to it uses more force than any normal road debris or gravel would have when it is thrown up by tires or bouncing along the road. Often times it’s multiple strikes with a hammer and that is opening a hole with a sharp object, not a blunt rock. You either had a boulder hit your car (the damage would be larger than what you show) or something else happened to it that is beyond normal circumstances. Is it possible this happened while you were away from it and it was only noticed on the arrival at that destination? Such as a trailer backed into you or something fell onto the van?That is one heck of a stone.
Were you going 150mph behind a gravel truck?
I honestly don’t believe the story. I drive 35k miles a year, and my van gets hit by stones every day, never once seen anything like that. When you’re going at speed, the stones have energy and they skim across the hood.
You could take the claw end of a hammer and wack your hood, and it wouldn’t penetrate like that.
How sure are you that it was not really a bullet? Ain't no rock off a tire that can do that - there's no way it had that much energy coming off a tire. Assuming your finger is roughly the same size as mine that hole is an inch long.

That's a good point - I didn't notice that at first. So maybe something went in and then got pulled out? Is this Tiger Woods' van? Maybe the OP's wife came at him with a golf club?What about the fact that the metal edges are bent outward? As PJones mentioned, if one was to puncture the metal with an awl and hammer to create a starter hole (for example), the metal edges would be bent inward. How does the OP explain that? That impact came from the inside unless I'm missing something here.
