#1 of 49 Scratches and Dents on Honda 2006
Mar 05, 2006 (12:15 pm)
Back in September I purchsed a 2006 Honda Accord. I have been extremely pleased with my choice but it seems as though the car scratches and dents very easily. Is there anyone with similar experiences??

The car does not get dents and scratches easily. If you hit something, expect a mark.

I bought a new car in Jan. In Feb, I had a door ding on the driver's door side and then a scratch on the back.
For the dent, i paid 63 dollars for paintless dent removal. For the scratch on the back bumper, i asked what the new car sales people would do if this happened in the lot and they directed me to a patch repair guy who said he will do it next wednesday but i doubt if the finish would be the same. Buff did not help as the paint was scratched probably by a kid with his bicycle

#7 of 49 Paint chipping on 2006 Accord

I have been driving my new 2006 Accord for about 7 months now. Today I noticed multiple paint chips on the hood and front doors. I have the redondo red. Has anyone else noticed this problem?

You're responses are not helpful. The Honda Accord DOES chip easier than ANY other car I've owned. I have a 1998 Ford Taurus with 120,000 miles on it. It has been hit by more than one rock I can assure you. There isn't one nick on it.
My 2005 Accord got nicked on the way home from the dealer. I waxed it today and found about 3 or 4 others.
The dealer offers you paint protection for a reason. Crappy paint. Better get a leather suit because by the time these cars hit 50,000 they're going to look like we drove them through and asteroid belt.
#9 of 49 Paint doesn't match
May 29, 2006 (7:00 pm)
I have a 2005 Accord EX (silver) and just had my rear bumper repaired and painted. I took it back to the dealership where I purchased it and had them paint it. However after they painted it the manager called me and told me it was too dark. He wanted to keep it another day so they could remix the paint. When I got it back I was surprised that they still weren't able to match it perfectly. They told me because the bumper is plastic and they couldn't match it with the metal even though they used the VIN #. They told me that alot of the cars don't match once they paint them and silver is the hardest to match.
I would think in todays day and age with technology that match the plastic with the metal wouldn't be a problem but apparantly it is. Has Anyone else had a problem with the paint not matching?

They can match the paint on the metal body parts. How do you think the factory did it? The problem is that the dealership's body shop is probably not using the same techniques as the factory, and didn't sand/strip the bumper down (and put primer on it) before repainting it. Have you considered insisting that the dealer simply buy you a new bumper straight from Honda that has the same color as your car?
