How can I prevent my vehicle from getting door dings?

There are several ways to prevent your vehicle from getting door dings:

  1. Park away from other vehicles: When you park, try to park in a spot where there are no other cars or in a spot that is far away from other vehicles.
  2. Use designated parking spots: Look for designated parking spots that are specifically designed to prevent door dings. These spots are typically wider than regular parking spots and have additional space on either side.
  3. Be mindful of parking lot layout: Try to park in a corner spot or end spot that is less likely to have a lot of foot traffic. Avoid parking near shopping carts or trash cans as they can be moved around easily and cause dings.
  4. Use a car cover: If you are parking your car for an extended period, consider using a car cover to protect it from dings.
  5. Install door edge guards: Door edge guards are rubber or plastic strips that attach to the edge of your car door and protect it from dings.
  6. Be aware of your surroundings: When getting in and out of your car, be aware of your surroundings and take extra care not to hit nearby vehicles or objects.
  7. Educate others: If you see someone opening their car door too close to your vehicle, kindly ask them to be more careful or considerate.
