    Along with another forum members here, my wife came running up to me last week, "when did the Escalade get hit" (now we have owned it well over a year). I ran out and said, "wheres the dent?", Joyce pointed inbetween the front and rear door. I just laughed!

    I get this on our 05, too. Like everyone else, the first time someone told me there was a dent, my heart sank.
    Then I saw it wasn't, and I was relieved.

    But I have actually looked at it in certain light and it does look like a dent, even to me, and I know it's there. LOL

    It's happened to me quite a bit. I think it's really funny.

    yes but it isn't cool when a fellow collage student comes up to you and asks if that is your truck with a dent in it i had that happen the second day after i got mine when they told me my heart sank like a brick but i was glad that it didn't but it was yet another person who walked away like a idiot but one of these days it is really going to happen and we ain't going to believe the one who tells us that

    i know what jnrsesv mine looks like a dent after a snow the one post i did was from where someone told me that i was really embarrassed since i hadn't had mine for a month when they told me that considering it was after i had got out of my class plus it was in front of a friend of mine really uncool which is why i hate salt with a passion considering what it does to the metal of the frame and body over time if it ain't washed off
