I dont know how to say it but I feel brand new grand users are not so lucky with their new beauties? First Parth, then Anshul and finally its me. That too mine has just crossed 130 Km.
Today While coming from the office, I had to take left turn from the main office Gate which faces the busy traffic road. As road was very crowded and there wasnt place for me to get in , I started inching bit by bit so that I could make a slot for me. I had my full attension on the vehicles coming from the right side and totally forgot the left side. As soon as I could see a little space in between two cars for myself I raced away and BOOOOOOOOOOM
My heart was in my mouth. I had totally missed an auto and a scooter rider on my left side and bruised my self heavily on them ( Why the hell they had parked on the edge of gate).
I parked the vehicle on the side , switched on the hazard lights and immediately went to scooter rider as I had seen him fell slightly. I apologized from both of them and they were OK after that. Autowala told me to check the car as his rear has hit my car. I saw but couldnt find anything. I said sorry again and came back home. After parking my grand I noticed that left door had two black lines just above the black side beadings and there was a minor dent on the door. Also at the the end of the beading there was a deep round scratch of about 2 mm diameter. I could see paint coming off and metal part exposed.
I felt so bad as I was so delighted with the looks of my first car.
Now my queries to you people are:
1) How to fix these two line dents? can they be fixed at the time of first servicing or they are generally ignored?
2) Can that 2 mm deep scratch be repainted without much spending?
I would not have complained had it been a year or so but seeing your first car bruised that too within a month of purchase squeezes your heart like nothing.
