    I was at Hooters parked all by myself and someone had to park next to me and gave me a very small door ding. Has anyone used paintless door ding or dent removal? Is it worth it? The ding is on the crease. I know it's very small but it's bugging the crap out of me.

    I've had great results with PDR over the years.
    Where are you located? I have an awesome guy here in Houston!

    Does PDR stand for paintless dent removal? If so there is one close to my house.

    Just Google PDR guys in your area and check their reviews. Either that or go on some of the local to you enthusiast forums on FB and ask.
    You can also call your dealership and see who they use.
    It doesn't look bad at all, they'll get it out easily.

    Man,......people really do suck! Sorry about the dent. It may be a bit tough if it's on the crease. But, they can work their magic and hopefully get it out completely.
    I bought the PDR option when I bought my 2016 Ram Sport 4X4 regular cab. It was an option as well as the extended warranty, which I did as well.
    Good luck OP!

    Sorry to hear about the dent. Good news is that it's hardly noticeable and can be easily fixed. You can park a mile away in an isolated lot and they will still find you and park their grocery car(t) next to you. Some folks just derive sadistic pleasures unfortunately.

    I have stopped parking my treasured cars on public lots for the last few years now. I have endured enough grief over the years and I now take my trusty Ram pick up and park it freely without causing myself any anxieties. Somehow no one wants to come close to a truck...haha.

    I opted for the same PDR with my previous VV CC. Perfect solution. All the best and let us know how it worked out...cheers!!!

    Traded a car and had to wait a week for the new ride to come in. Dealer said to drive my pre-traded car and not to worry.
    Some primate at work put a handbag or briefcase on my hood and left a grape sized dent that was half a grape sized deep. I crapped in my hat. I was parked way out in the hinterlands of our massive lot to avoid coworkers in a hurry.

    The dealer's PDR guy fixed it and I was stunned. Couldn't believe what a great job, couldn't see or feel where it was. Good luck and check the Better Business Bureau as well as local references.

    Same here bro!!
    I NEVER leave my car parked unattended and always take the truck if I have to park. And I still park that far away and at and end spot.
    People do really suck.

    ive used them many times on many vehicles....i dont accept any dents on any of my cars....not even on my work truck.....they always accomplish perfection for crazy cheap.....typically its a $100 or less

    i think they took 5 dents off my work van hood for $150

    just look for a quality business
