@Jivtesh Singh bajwa Did you sell or trade your vehicle?

@Lsuzanne89 Doubtful you have any recourse here other than to be careful...super careful. I don’t find the body panels or hood any thinner than any other modern vehicles.

Ya sure will super moderator don’t be worried I will buy a Toyota and will also keep an eye on all the problems the palisade has on this forum

We dropped it at the dealer for the window issue and it seems the ICU junction box is malfunctioning so they’ve given us a Santa Fe for two weeks and she’s working on getting the hood replaced under warranty since the dent is outwards caused by something on the inside.

Before they put a new hood and have painted I would see if one of those dent wizard guys can remove the dent. Those guys are amazing. I have had all kinds of dents removed and can never tell that there was dent. Just a thoughte

If you got hit with dime size hail you may want to recheck your vehicle under some different lighting. Not many vehicles can go through dime-sized hail unscathed.
I agree and was amazed when I didn't see any obvious dents. Not saying a trained eye would tell me differently.

If it was during one of the very hot days, the exposure to the heat would make them pop. 10 to 20 years ago we had a huge hail storm during the summer. The insurance companies had hail damage tents set up. They gave me a check to get my hail damage fixed. A couple days later it was a really hot day and my car was parked outside the stadium while I worked. I came out to my car and there was no damage because of the heat.

I cashed the insurance check.

However I did take the car through a car wash and noticed the hood metal vibrating at a concerning rate when the dryer blowers were hitting the car. I do think the metal is thinner than I expected.
This is fairly normal with newer cars... My 2020 Acura TLX's hood will "vibrate" ever so slightly and the hood on my 2013 GMC Sierra does as well. A hood is basically latched against a bunch of rubber bumpers so it's essentially floating on rubber and will vibrate or move. If your fenders or doors were vibrating, I'd be concerned.

The car wash dryers aren't really the greatest thing for cars, they provide a very high air force aimed directly at the paint/metal. I typically roll through them as quickly as possible and synthetic chamois dry my vehicles if I have to go through a car wash, takes 5 minutes. Of course, handwashing with 2 5 gallon buckets, microfiber wash mits and actual car wash soap is the best for your car/paint, but not everyone can/wants to do that and clean paint is better than dirty paint.

They used a paint less dent removal on site and it looks great, like new.
