I found a small bubble that has popped on the left widebody fender. The bubble is very tiny. The third photo is on the body itself, where the windshield connects with the passenger window. I'm not sure if its a bubble or part of the car. I'm already taking the car in to replace a cracked bumper. This car is starting to be a pain in the rear with so much issues from Dodge already, and its not even mechanical. Should I just leave it alone and forget about it or is there a concern for damage down the road?

I wasn't planning on but should I just get ceramic coated and paint corrected?

Depends on how much it bothers you. If you feel it is an eye sore then by all means

at this point I just wanna keep my car out the shop. Are bubbles specifically for aesthetic correction or can it lead to rust down the road?

You live in a area ware no salt is on the roads. I would not worry about it.If anything just have them document the issue and let it be.My 15 Scat Pack had one like that at the bottom of the door.

My passenger side front fender alignment is terrible. My tech said they could send to their body shop (under warranty) to fix. Not worth the anxiety for me to leave it for people to drive it God knows where and maybe do more damage trying to fix it. Not sweating the little stuff personally.

How big is that? Can you pull back for scale?

If i were to pull it back you wouldn't be able to see it. The tiny black area you see in the picture is about the size of a pin head if that helps. I'm thinking a tiny dab with my touchup paint pen would do it.

Roger that. If it was me, such a small imperfection versus letting the dealership at my car, I would have to chose leaving it the way it is. But that is just me. Each must make their own value judgment.
