Default 2015 Mustang GT Dented Door?

I took delivery of my new Mustang on 3/31/15 and I finally got to clean it up this weekend. When drying, I noticed a bunch of scuffs on the driver's door that looked like they would buff out (shouldn't have to buff anything on a new car), but when I was walking away, I noticed a quarter-sized dent in the door. I'm not sure what to do. If I call the dealership, I'm assuming they won't fix it since I've had the car for almost a week, but I know for DAMN sure, I didn't put the scuffs OR the dent there. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks!

How's your comprehensive coverage? Sounds like it was vandalism.

My comp deductible is only $250 but it looks more like someone was leaning against the door or something. I'll take some pics and post them.

I'd recommend lowering to a $0 deductible for Comp. Not sure about PA laws but here in FL it's well worth the $1.50/month it costs me. Just in case I want to get that scratch fixed.

Not that it helps for this case since it's after the fact but $250 may (almost certainly) be cheaper than paying out of pocket.

Welcome to the forum, sorry to hear about your door. Are you thinking this is something you missed when you picked the car up ?

Unfortunately, yes! Being new, I wasn't expecting to have to go over everything with a fine-toothed comb, especially the body panels. Lesson learned!
