Small scratch

Does the standard warranty cover small paint scratches? There's a tiny scratch on the tip of my passenger door. I've never hit anything with any of my doors though. I just noticed it today and had it since May. I was wondering if it was covered under warranty because they might think I just opened the door and hit something and not fix it. It appears to be a simple fix. Just a quick swipe of touch up paint, not even a drops worth. Would they fix it?

Not sure call them and ask if "there were a scratch" would it be covered under warrantee or will there be a need for me to just purchase touch up paint? Just try not to say you have a scratch just say you are just asking for some general knowledge. That would be what i do. But do what you fell is right.

I know this sounds pretty bad but this is what I would do.. If the scratch is bad... Bring it to the dealership and say there is something wrong with your car (but not really....) Then knowing nothing is wrong with your car before you leave walk out with the severs manger and spot a scratch in your car then they have to fix it.... Thats if you dont want to pay any money to fix it your-self....

Oh man... you guys are wrong...

Scratches are not covered because its not a manufacters defect, you can get scratches just driving in the street & etc...
Sorry

the only way the dealer will fix a scratch is if you bring it in for service and they make the scratch and u notice before you leave

Well since it's not covered, how do I go about fixing it myself? Its very tiny but damn being brand new it looks SO HUGE to me. Its not even a quarter inch long and its on the edge of the door where the metal wraps back around. As small as it is would it need the whole deal such as primer, paint and clear coat? It won't even need a drop of each.
