While I suppose that stress dents are possible on unibody cars after going
over strenuous bumps, the car would have to be awfully flimsy. . .sounds more
like a Yugo than an Acura. I would think that if it were that bad that the
lawyers would be all over them with law suits. I still find it pretty hard
to believe though; sure there isn't something else going on? It wouldn't be
spontaneous at any event; the highest stress events that might cause damage
on a flimsy car would be towing it or putting a lift under it in the wrong
Just one more reason that I would rather have an old truck any day.

Anyone ever hear of this happening before?
He says: "I own a '99 Acura Integra GS-R Sports Coupe.
The problem is that a number of dents have
appeared on top of both front fenders and the rear quarter panels. The
dents on the driver's side appear to be semetrical with those on the
passenger side. I don't believe they were caused by any person. My
mechanics, The Meccanic Shop in Valhalla, New York, who are Honda/ Acura
told me that these dents sometimes appear on the Integras spontaneously
to light sheet metal and body design,(force dynamics).
Have you ever heard of such a thing happening on an Acura Integra or any
other car for that matter - spontaneous self-denting?"
