My QX60 is one year old with 12,000 miles on it. I was at a tire company this weekend getting my tires rotated, and while I was there they had an accident and put two deep scratches on my vehicle. The smallest one is on the side of the hood and is about the size of your smallest fingertip. The larger one is on the fender and is about 3/4" long by 1/4" at the widest point. Both are small but are showing bare metal. The tire company has agreed to pay for the repairs. I took it to my Infiniti dealership, and they said I should have both scratches repaired properly by repainting versus doing a touch-up which would leave it noticeable. I am very torn about having the hood and fender both repainted, but my dealership assured me their quality is outstanding, and they offer a lifetime warranty on their work so long as I own the car. I am so picky with my vehicle that I hand wash rather than putting it through a car wash. It is black and looks so beautiful when it's clean, and I plan on keeping this vehicle for a long time. I'd like someone's expert opinion on painting over the factory paint for two minor scratches, so that I can consider my options.
