In the first month of me owning my cobalt I had a ton of rock chips in the hood, probly a dozen or more, so I took it back to the dealer and they gave me touchup paint but a couple months later i hit a deer so I got a new painted hood. Also I have a chip in my front windshield from a NYS snow plow going to fast flinging salt all over and I got pelted by it. Good thing I got glass on my insurance. Good luck.

i got stuck behind a dump truck full of sand one day on the high way. I could hear the front of my car getting sandblasted by all the **** blowing out of the top of the truck.

rock chips are bound to happen. Especially with daily drivers. Unless you trailer your car to shows expect to get chips. I have come yo just live with it. Judges know that it happens. I get white scratches that i usually buff out but if its something major or a lot of chips in one spot i have my painter fix it up for me.

Yeah I got a chip a few weeks after I got the car, went to my salesman, who went back to the parts dept and gave me the bottle for free.

Yea i got like 6 chips since that snow storm we had 3 weeks ago here in Tacoma, Seattle. area i got 1 on the windshield right on my driver side center. 1 in the fender and like 4 on the hood. I ended up getting an empty touch up paint bottle with a brush and a pen tip and i went to my class and asked the paint guys to mix me a color match and i am fixing it today. p.s. Im in Auto Collision and Refinishing at Clover Park Technical College.
