searched the topic and couldnt find any info on the item has anyone had problems with their GM paint jobs? I have an 05 silver V with 33,000. paint on front and back bumpers is starting to chip (not bad but noticeable). also have noticed paint is cheaping on the hood where it ends at the windshield. had the dealership look at it, said they have to talk to their GM rep to see if the warranty will cover, just currious if anyone else has had problems?
Thanks,
Dan

My front end is chipped up pretty good at 31k and i'm not too impressed. Backend is fine.

Same here...rocks and highway debris have won the fight with my front bumper and windshield. :annoyed:

If it is pealing it has probably been repainted. Your hood also. :( I haven't seen modern day GM cars pealing. They can be stone chipped to death where there is not more clear coat but the paint is still there.

If it is pealing it has probably been repainted. ...That was my thought.











(Only I was thinking "peeling.")

If your bumper is "pealing" you have some big problems! If it is "peeling" then you can have it repainted...Maaco will fix that for $199! :histeric:

Good first call on that Randy. :highfive:

I would be extra careful if you go to a place like that. They are going to just tape off the bumper lines to the quarters and overspray can be comon.

My clear coat was bubbling up and pealing away. Warranty fixed it.
