For sure, I would complain. I would get them to properly apply touch up paint to get rid of the paint chips on the bumper at least. I don't know what they can do for the scratches on the windows. I would try to tighten the screws myself, but if I don't have the proper tools, then I'd get them to do it.

Irony: typing a typo (conpaint) when trying to point out another typo (compaint) by someone else...!!! :)

touch-up paint or bumper refinishing?

I too have gotten a thin two-inch scratch on the plastic bumper (on the left side right in front of the left wheel).

A local Honda dealer told me that touch-up paint would definitely be visible. He mentioned that I could get the bumper "refinished" for about $250-$300 at any competent body shop.

Is there any other way to remove or cover the scratch in a way that the area will look "new" again? (I've only made ONE payment on the Pilot so I still have that "new car anxiety" thing happenning!!)

Or do I just have to suck it up and pay the $300 for a bumper refinishing?

Nope, you put teh $300 in your pocket to spend on somethiung you realy want, and think about it as saved $$ at the next scratch.

Remember, I's a CAR!!!

Drive it like it is and wait until the bumper really needs it, if ever. Last time I was up your way the traffic was as bad as it is here in Houston, ,,ummm will almost as bad. If you get it fixed and next week you get anther scratch, bump from someone they you would really be :3: :3: :3: :3:

An die can put the era rite,

Eye halve run this poem threw it,
And I'm shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh,
My chequer tolled me sew:2: :2:
