It happens to everybody sooner or later. You walk out to your car and notice that there is a dent, scratch, or rust in the paint job. As irritating as this is, you may find yourself asking if it’s worth it to fix the dent. Although much of your decision will depend on the age and condition of your car, there are other factors you should consider. Below, we take a closer look at dents, cuts, and rusts, and why you need to fix them.



Sometimes a slight bump on your car can cause a dent. Even the smallest dents are unsightly and can ruin an otherwise perfect finish. The good news is that dents are easy to fix. When you bring your car to Minnetonka Collision Center, our ASE-certified technicians can restore your car’s body using paintless dent repair. We can push the dent out without ruining the paint.


Cuts & Scrapes

Cuts and scrapes may not do as much structural damage to your car’s body, but they can still ruin the vehicle’s overall appearance. They can also eventually rust or corrode out if the scratch is deeper than the surface of the paint. Minnetonka Collision Center can buff out the old scratches and fill in the area with new paint. Our color-matching process will get the right pain on your car so that you can’t tell the difference between the current paint and the paint we just added.



Unlike small dents and scratches, rust can do more damage to your vehicle because of its corrosive elements. Rust can eat through the car’s surface and spread like cancer through the auto body. Rust can age a vehicle fast and make it look older than it is. If the rust is extensive, we may have to replace a particular part the car. If we can repair a small isolated area, however, we will buff out the area, remove, the dust, and color-match the paint. Your car will look as good as new once again.
