Hi Lamf1977, a few months ago I shoved something heavy in the backseat so I could haul it home (desk-piece from work). It was somewhat heavy and as I was pushing it onto the backseat, I scrapped a little bit of the black plastic near where the door closes. Now, the two scrapes were not that big, but I could see them so I could not let it go. I checked out AutoZone online to see if they had anything I could use instead of a 'sharpie' and they have these "Duplicolor Paint (Scratch Fix)" pens you can use for the exterior of the vehicle going for a little over $13.00. Now, these are strictly for exterior damage, but the scratches were kinda deep, small but deep...so I needed something that would be somewhat thick. I went in person to one of our AutoZone locations in town and spend some minutes going through the shelves of "Scratch-Fix" pens. I found two, one in Silver-Ice (in case I ever needed for the exterior of the Trax) and a Charcoal black (the one I used for the scratches). The Charcoal Black was a bit too shiny for the scratches, but since the size of the scratches was not a big deal I didn't really care, I just wanted to cover-up the scratches with something of almost the same color. Depending on how you feel about the scratches, you could go and see if these are an option you want to go with. Now I know these might not be for everyone, but in my case they were better than the sharpie I used for the tiny damage.
