    Will it be covered under the paint warranty?

    You can just see it when the bonnet is closed it looks like a chip but when you lift the bonnet up you can see the paint is bubbled up and is ready to split I have a picture but I have trouble loading it up on here

    No, the paint warranty on the Vectra is now only 1 year
    I had a similar issue, no amount of photos and service history was helpful
    The AA eventually gave in trying to help me

    The 6 year warranty is for the body only, and its anti-corrosion coating, not the paint

    The usual cause is grit and dirt which impacts the paint, this is not covered by warranty

    The Vectra B had a six year paint and bodywork warranty
    The Vectra C only has the one year paint warranty
    I am disgusted as I have already had to have the bonnet repainted and the front wings need repainting now, the paint is also missing from the rear bumper but fitting mudflaps will simply cover this
    My previous Vectra B never had this issue

    Lesson for next car, purchase mudflaps to protect the (fragile) paint

    But the paint is bubbling from the under side of the bonnet so the road grit does not hit direct where the edge of the bonnet is folded over the paint is bubbling it looks like the alloy has corrosion
