There is a scratch on my car I can't get out. how do i fix it.

My car has 8345 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Any time you get a scratch in your paint you should have a body shop check it. They will not charge you to look at it. If the scratch gets too deep it could cause the metal to rust. If the paint is only a superficial scratch then a mild compound and a good wax will remove it.
