After many weeks of waiting our EV6 FE finally showed up at the dealer this past Wednesday and on Friday afternoon we decided to move forward with the purchase. FE #153 Glacier/Green. We didn't take it home on Wednesday because the car arrived off the truck with a very small dent on the back trunk/hatch door near the EV6 badge. However the dealership was very upfront about mentioning this the moment we arrived and they brought in a dent specialist to take care of it. It was a pretty soft dent which can easily be popped back into place with a high pressure suction cup. The very next day by lunch time they called me to say the car was ready. I had a really busy day at work on Thursday so that is why I didn't get to see the car in person until Friday. The car looked like it never had an issue in the first place. Perfect. I really got close and looked at the spot from various angles...nothing. So kudos to Carriage Kia for getting this right. Below I'm posting some still frame grabs from a quick phone video I took on Wednesday night when we saw the dent. It's the only visuals we had. But in those still frames I'm pointing out the dent. Then I have a couple of after shots.

The dealership honored MSRP straight off the bat and never really tried to push anything else on to us. We decided to add the cargo cover on our own as the wife really wanted to have this. It was also really cool to meet @EV61ED4ME and his wife as they were picking up their Glacier FE at the same time on Friday.

Looks great, used a dent repair specialist in the UK before, Dent Devils they were called lol. I was utterly amazed by their work, like new after they fixed it, which took 90mins almost!. But £100 for a small dent caused by.......wait for it...... a can of Coca-Cola!. Yes, an unopened can of Coca-Cola dented a car!

Well better then the people who don't care about other peoples cares and bash them in car parks, really annoys me.

I will park as far away as I can and yet come back to the car and all spaces will be clear but I will still find a car has parked either side of me, crazy.

Happened to me less than a week after getting my EV6. I have a dent in the passenger door because some old coot in a decrepit Renault Espace opened his door during the storms and didn't bother to hold on to it. It BOUNCED off of my car and I had some rather screamy words with him; he just walked off, the ahld git.

Did you get him to pay for the damage?
