So we bought a new Chevy Traverse last Friday. Wouldn’t you know it, by Monday, my wife parked the vehicle near our local elementary school, went in and when she got in the car, she noticed the passenger side mirror was flipped inwards. She flipped it back in place (no damage), and noticed on the front passenger side quarter panel a 15 inch black streak and down near the fender, a couple of decent scratches. Looked like a bike brushed up against it, in my opinion. The black streak will come out with something like Nu Finish, but was wondering how to take care of the scratches lower near the fender. I know there are some products that hide the scratches and eventually wash out with a few car washes, but I’ve heard of a few other products like Scratch X 2.0 that actually repair the scratches.
Any opinions on this, or should I take it to an expert, like a body shop or maybe even a detailer?
