I recently had my Trailblazer repaired after someone decided to do a U-turn into the side of it. There was very little damage to my truck. However, when it returned from the repair shop, I noticed two very small pinholes in the area where they fixed the small dent/scratch. Is this normal or should I take it back? I am concerned that in two or three years, water will get into these holes and it will start to rust.
If the dented area was repaired, there should be no holes. It should be like smooth metal (similar to the remainder of the vehicle). My guess is that there were air bubbles in the paint. Return the vehicle to the body shop and tell them of your dissatisfaction.
