That is correct. metal front fenders on a 09. There are people who take these dings out without painting or sanding for like $75.00 and do an awesome job. had one taken out of my chev that way. took them 45 min and the dent was gone no painting. If it's new and it was there when you bought it you might take it back to the dealer and see what they will do.I think 09 has metal front quarter panel, not plastic. Rear quarter panel is plastic.
+1I second that - first ask the Dealer if they will fix it. They will likely have a shop they use all the time on their trade-ins for exactly this. If not, look in your area for places that do "Paintless Dent Repair/Hail damage repair". They will go in from behind the panel with special tools that actually push and smooth out the dent from behind. Had a bad dent from a truck door on my MINI Cooper fixed that way. $50 and 20 minutes and gone.
