    I've noticed that I have paint chips on both rear doors. When I saw the first one, I thought it could have been the car parked next to me kicking rocks but then saw that it was both sides. Anyone else getting this? Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    I had my 2018 for a couple months and had 2 nice little chips on the bottom of the driver side passenger door and on the front end. I got some of doctor color chip and was able to repair them and to this day cannot noticed where they used to be.

    The Dr. Color chip is a good product IMO not 100% perfect but does a decent job.

    could be a lawnmower was used and the rocks blew on your runner . then if you park on a street the snow plow trucks will whack the side of your runner with rock salt.

    Could just be rocks thrown from the front tires. I have sliders so they block anything coming off the front tires and I have KO2's so they like grabbing little rocks and bouncing them off the sliders.
