Since the weather has really gotten stupid hot, I have 6 visible dimples in the hood of my 2010 Soul. They line up perfectly with the places that the hood is spot welded to the supporting framework on the underside of the hood.

I took it to the dealer today to have the door light wiring harness recall done, and to have them look at the hood. The service manager says that there is no way that it is covered under warranty because it is clearly "damage". probably from being driven with the hood up, and if it was a defect it is too late to fix it (1 year old, 20,000 miles). I complained to his boss who said they would try "paintless hailstone dent repair" to pull them out.

This isn't going to work.

Any ideas on how to proceed next, and has anyone else had a similar issue?

something similar has been reported on the rear hatch when its really cold. See if the dimples go away when the weather cools down, it could just be different expansion rates of the different materials causing distortion.
