My paint is peeling!!

So I was wiping my car down with some Turtle Wax Ice Detailer and noticed the paint is flaking off where the rear bumper and quarter panel meet.
Not cool. I hate leaving my car anywhere to get worked on, I like to wait. Now my Jeep has been in the shop for 3 weeks and now this. I'm beyond pissed right about now. I was just bitching to my buddy today about the terrible job they do painting these cars with all the orange peel too.


It looks worse in person. You could take your fingernail and just peel it right off.

Are we still saving the environment with the factory crap paint when we have to repeatedly take our cars into the body shop for re-sprays?

Way to go tree-huggers!!!

Thanks guys. Hopefully it doesn't get too much worse before I get my Jeep back. I'd hate to rent a car, that's why I have 2! lol

How late into the model year did this affect the '10s? Mine was built in November.

Not just early builds. Mine's #52K and change built in Oct. 09 and it had it. Dealer fixed it though. They have a TSB on it with new fastener kit.

This is a common problem with these cars. I had my car in to fix the same problem earlier in the year. There is a new fastening kit they use so it does not pull the rear bumper so tight against the rear quarter. I'll see if I still have the part #. I e-mailed it to the dealer prior to taking it in and he looked it up. I guess it's some type of silent recall (If it's not broke don't fix it). My buddy's car is doing the same thing too.

Mine was the first one my dealer had done the "Paint Peel" TSB on. He broke several tabs on the bumper cover pulling it off to repaint. I got a whole new bumper cover out of the deal.

Does anyone know what the TSB number is for this issue? I want to be prepared when I go to my dealer. When they try to tell me there isn't one I want to throw it in their face. lol

Mine appears to be doing this as well, I guess I need to take it in for that too.

So I got my car back and it looks like sh#t! They did a horrible job painting it, doesn't match at all, there is hardly any metallic flake in the repainted portion. I also don't think they repainted the whole bumper. There are swirls and dust particles underneath the paint all over the place.
Took the car in this afternoon to show the general manager and he's siding with the body shop guy. Claiming it's "commercially acceptable". However they're offering to repaint it. But I don't trust them. They'll probably just respray it which will only pile up the paint on my bumper and make it less likely to flex. I'm so pissed.

I feel ya man. Dealership did terrible job on mine too. It is not easily noticeable so I am living with it but I wish I paid out of pocket to took it to a real body shop.
