Paint Pealing On 2004 Gx 470

Recommended Posts

The paint on my 2009 GX, which has always been garaged and waxed, recently began to chip along both sides. The chipping paint seems to follow the outer surface of the vehicle along the lower portions of the door and up and around the wheel wells.  Before I get it repainted, I am trying to figure out if it is the paint deteriorating or if it is an external cause. ANy help would be most appreciated.

Sorry to see what is happening to your rig, My 04 gx470  which is my daily driver still does not have the problem you are seeing. However my fender paint lost its shine about 3+ years ago and is fading. Car is also garaged and washed periodically so its a bit upsetting to see it.

My paint is peeling on all 4 doors and the roof.  The clear coat is coming off on the bumper.  Lexus/Toyota replaced my Dash 2 years ago and I was happy.  Now I am looking at a repaint.  Anyone have this done? Cost?

Toyota sent out a message that they are going to address the peeling paint after 15yrs. I painted the hood and roof of my truck which cost about $ 2000 but now my 04 GX is peeling in other places. Front quarter panel and doors. I hope they address this soon.

I received a letter from Lexus saying they may reimburse people for this if they have painted their cars.  My car had gotten so bad that I finally had it painted after I found a place to do it.  They did it for $2500 and they painted my whole car from the molding up    Looks so much better now.  It was awful beforehand

I just bought a used GX 470, have been so happy with my choice until 30 days in, I notice peeling paint on the roof! Lucky for me, a neighbor restores old cars and offered to help me. He warned me it wouldn’t be a “perfect” job. Since it was on the roof, I didn’t care at all, I just wanted to prevent further damage and rust! He did a great job for as much as he warned me. He even touched up those pesky bummers everyone is referring too. The bumpers look amazing!  I just thought it was a weird freak thing. Now the door by the passenger window is also peeling! That a much more complicated fix. Yikes! What did I get myself into!
