Exterior Paint

Recommended Posts

I only drive on paved roads but yet I have numerous paint chips on the hood front of my 2010 Lexus with approximately 30,000 KM. I had a special protective applied when I bought the vehicle at a cost of some $700. My dealer says this is normal but I disagree. I also own a 12 year old Honda with over 100,000 KM which has less paint damage than my Lexus. I believe the paint used by Toyota/Lexus is of inferior quality. Has anyone else had the same problem?

You're absolutely right in your observations, the new Toyota/Lexus paint is VERY soft.

What "paint protection" did you have them apply? Are you talking about a clear-bra or the wax they charge an arm and a leg for that washes away in a month? :wacko:

Can you take and post pictures of the chipped area? If it's bad enough you can opt to have a body shop repaint it. Body shop paint is much harder than the factory Lexus paint.
