A few days before I took the Enclave on a road trip this weekend, it unfortunatly suffered some paint chip damage from a landscaper weed wacking nearby while the car was parked at my spouses employer :angryfire:. The damage resulted in several chips in the front driver door, rear passenger door, and rear quarter panel (at least three in each panel). The employer has since contacted the landscaper who sent a manager out and they have admitted fault. They asked us to get an estimate that they can submit to their liability insurance. I got the estimate - $1000.00 - basically all three items above have to be completely repainted (wow...) Work will take 3 days to complete. :banghead:

I'm debating whether or not to go ahead with the repair (assuming their is no issue with the landscaper's insurance paying for it). vs. touch-up paint. I am certainly not involving my car insurance and in fact have not told them about this at all. The thought have all three panels repainted. :-\ I know they go a great job blending the color, but you know it never is really exactly the same as the factory since its not from the same paint batch. On top of that we have the Red Jewel which supposidly has an extra coat (reason for the extra cost)

Any advice? What would you do? ???

Since the Vehicle is new, and you want to keep it looking new, I would have it professionally repaired.
I had one repaired at the Dealer once and they did an excellent job. I was happy with my decision.

I agree with Rocketman, since they are going to completely paint all three panels and since they vehicle is so new, I am sure you won't notice any difference.
