    Default Paint problems

    Hi folks, bit of a question for the wise, I have a problem with the clear coat that is on top of the coulour coat of the paintwork it seems to peel off. It is happening on the front bumper and the door mirrors. (53 signum)

    I am fairly lazy and get the car washed at the local hand car wash as do lots of other owners.
    Does anyone know if there was a problem with the paint used by VX at this time?

    Thanks
    Ian B.

    I did establish recently that unless you specifically ask Vauxhall to check your paint at each service, and stamp your book with this, then you paintwork warranty is no longer. Sorry..

    You're getting mixed up with the six year anti-perforation warranty Rob. Paint warranty is 12 months from new.

    Yep that flaking skin description is perfect, just like the car has had sunburn (not this summer I think) so I guess the answer is a full respray?
