What metal are the doors made of?
 
My wife opened the passenger front door and hit the bottom corner on a rock. She chipped the paint off the bottom. Is the door steel (can rust), or something like aluminum? I will have to try and get some touch-up paint from the dealer.... :(

Careful, that could backfire and encourage more door dings. May wanna just make her sleep on the couch to ensure it won't happen again.

Soooo anyhoo, the galvanized steel should protect from rust unless it's a bad hit, either way, good idea to touch it up in short order.

Hate to hear that man.
And assuming it's more than just a touch spot, remember that a couple of thin brush coats are better than one thick coat. And let it dry completly between coats.
I'm not looking forward to my first ding. I know it's coming at some point, but that will be the day a little piece of me dies inside.
