Guess who loves humanity today?

Not me.

Some ****er keyed the hatch of my 3 month old Summit:

"Yep, that'll buff right out..."

Edit:

I determined that one reason the gouge is so deep is that this is a plastic piece. Does anyone know if this plastic flashing piece is available, the particular part number for a 2014 Summit (Granite Crystal Metallic), and cost?

To wit (blue arrow indicates the keyed slash... told you that grey can mask damage under certain lighting/angles):

The tooling marks shown are like something out of CSI. There was a lot of force on that key.

I would say at the least see if you have a trusted body shop to ask them how much it might be even if you can't have the work done now.. Depends on Where the scratch is and they may want to repaint the entire hatch so the paint matches.. If they say it's a lot (more than your deductible) it may be worth doing a police report if required to go through insurance.. Just from my own experience.. Any other photos?

Yeah, I will call my insurance today. This photo angle is probably the best to show the damageóbased on the coloration I presume the laceration is down to the body metal on the lower part. I haven't stuck a depth gauge in it or anything, but it's substantial enough to really grab my fingernails.

Also, apparently "****er" isn't the exclusive, traditional term. "Dickless piece of shit" is also considered appropriate:

The Jeep is garaged. This almost undoubtedly happened on campus. The self-righteous liberal environmentalist hate for SUVs is palpable.

I will say that the grey paint color does diminish the appearance of the lesion and makes it less obvious.

Re: Guess who loves humanity today?

Definitely an insurance job. I've been screwed like that a number of times. If you want it fixed properly you'll need the entire panel painted, and possibly feathered into adjacent panels. I had a door keyed a few years ago and the total cost was over $800. Put some wax in it to protect it, but get it to a good body shop as soon as you can. Something like that just makes you want to slap the crap out of someone. On a related note, around here the pencil dicks that do that kind of stuff now like to deep key your driver's door handle so it pisses you off every time you get in your vehicle. Sorry for your violation.

Thanks for the kind sentiment. Now that I know this is damage to plastic it's somewhat of a relief because the clock isn't ticking on body rust.

It may just be simpler to replace the part... it's a strip as wide as the hatch, but seems fairly thin. It looks like it includes the housing for the backup camera. Then again, replacing it would depend on availability and cost.

If it's just the plastic you should be golden! Maybe a couple hundred ? Hopefully
