Should I try to have Ram fix these?

So I have a 2015 I bought new about four months ago. I've already noticed a large chip in the paint and a separate smaller one, both all the way to the primer. Plus, there is a chip in the chrome on my grill. This is my third Ram, my first I had for five years and my second for three years, and did a lot of long distance drives in and had no problems like this.

The dealer already said no, but I didn't expect much from them. If it was just a simple chip in the clear coat it wouldn't be that bad, but they're to the primer. And I knew I haven't hit anything big enough to have caused that one.

I guess so. I've posted on their Facebook page and sent then a message, but they haven't replied. I know that stuff happens, but I don't think it should have chipped that much off. And the grill really upsets me because I know it will just keep getting worse.

If you don't get anywhere with them, put clear finger nail polish or a dab of super glue over the grill spot to keep it from flaking off anymore. Easier/Cheaper to replace the grill than to paint the truck.
