Sorry to hear....I just think of them as small accidents and by getting them everyonce in a while I am fullfilling my probability of a serious crash. :D

wow, they're painful.
me too!! 3rd week of ownership.

i bet previous 3rd gen or previous van drivers don't get their 1st scratches/dents until much later than newbs, but being new to this behemoth i now drive...i scraped the driver side rear wheel well on on a corner of my house (tight drive way). heard a soft screech.

fortunately most of what i thought was 3 nasty scratches was paint from the stucco and after detailing the car this weekend, most of it came off.

best part, though, is that my wife didn't do it. she's happy and i'm happy too because i would've felt bad after yelling at her about it. and i've got the 1st scratch over with and the damage is minimal.

any prev 3rd gen, now on 4th gen have problems with the new wider body? now i know why luxury cars have those retracting side view mirrors!

I get everything from small rocks to pieces of metal hit the front and side of the van. It has lots of chipped paint and this dent with the paint scraped out. 880 between the bay bridge to oakland is a rough place to drive.

first scratch....how about the first wreck? My coworker at work got a new grey 2011 Touring before Christmas. He had it for just 13 days and someone ran a red light and clipped the front right corner of his van. Driver's airbag did deploy. About $6k total in repairs. He should be getting it back from the dealership bodyshop this week.

I know someone who totaled a prius by hitting a deer on the way home from the dealership...:eek:

the prius is damn quiet - the deer must've not heard it coming ;-)
