Cars are generally not considered an investment that will pay off when selling in several years. You most likely will not make nearly as much selling your car as compared to what you paid for it in the beginning. The exception to this are old collectors cars, and rare high end cars. However, a pristine condition car will sell much easier and for a higher value than a car below pristine condition. Dings and dents can and will reduce the price of a car by thousands of dollars when you’re trying to sell it. Make the smart decision and invest in an auto body shop to repair your cars shell to increase its value.
