Our 2013 Malibu still has no dents or dings, but has a few minor scratches. In the past (with other vehicles) my use of touch up paint has not come out too well. Can anyone suggest and recommend one of the products that propose to allow you to rub out scratches?

If a scratch is deep enough that your fingernail gets stuck in it, then forget trying anything yourself.

If not then you can use a product called (Meguiars clear coat safe rubbing compound), its works great.
