The Cost of Saving a Dollar

Like most passenger vehicles, my small SUV has moldings on the sides to protect against bumps by buggies, car doors and the like. They are fairly tall, maybe ten inches or so. After four years, the doors have been knocked a few times, something to be expected. But, I looked at the passenger side today. There are eight little chips, each exposing the white interior of the molding in sharp contrast to the black paint (Obsidian Black!). I guess it's time to go get some touch up paint.

But, if Hyundai had spent, what a buck, and made the molded pieces with impregnated color, I wouldn't have to do anything.
