Driveway incline is so steep my car scrapes the asphalt

I just moved into my new construction. My house is on a hill, so I knew I would have a steep driveway. The problem is that the incline from the street is so steep, the bottom of my car scrapes the asphalt going in and out. I pointed it out to my contractor when the driveway was first constructed. He said they would fix it after the house was nearly finished when they added the final coat. That didn’t fix the problem. Then they tried adding more asphalt near the street, but my car is still scraping. The driveway was $15,000. Am I wrong to think that they need to make it right even if they have to regrade it?
