There's no way I would allow them to repaint. New car only for this problem. Hope it goes smooth for you.

Ok i just left the dealership. We brought it to the paint shop and they tryied to get the spots out with no luck. Confirmed its deff under the paint.
There are spots on both mirrors, passager side fender, behind both back wheels and in between the back tail lights.
I now have a service claim in with Chevy customer service. They are contacting the dealership today about it. I already told them i want a new car with a discount. Lets see if i get it.

Why did the OP not mention whether or not he noticed this when he took delivery of the car? Do the spots darken over time or how did this flaw slip past so many inspectors?

Imagine how many other 2014s have the same flaw but are less noticeable because of a darker paint color.

This explains why so many were bayed after built.

Original poster. Found it.
When i picked it up it was pouring down outside. I took it home and wiped it down in the garage. Ive been working 12 hour shifts since then and dont drive it everyday. First time i washed it i noticed them. Last Saturday. Been in contact with the dealership since then about it.

For all we know the liquid that made those spots could have been completely clear when it left the factory and only started darkening after it was exposed to prolonged sunlight. Who knows. Definitely a strange phenomenon that I have faith Chevrolet will correct.

A repaint is nothing like factory paint ..there is no way they would be repainting my car unless the where going to run it back through the factory paint line, and they can't do that . I'm a painter by trade and I do know the difference!

Casperadub70,

Glad to hear that it already sounds like you've opened a GM case regarding your current concerns. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me and I will reference your case.

Sincerely,

...some kind of contamination, if it's under the clear coat....I've never seen that spot pattern before....definetely something Chevy should look into.

This is a weird situation. I hope they get this issue fixed to your liking. I honestly would not be happy with anything less than a replacement vehicle, given the number of panels this affects, and considering it was like this before you ever touched it.
That's what I was wondering. How was this not caught at the factory? When you watch those factory tour shows they lead you to believe there are human eyes checking out the cars as they come out of paint. How could they miss this, it looks horrible.

OP, they should give you another '14 with at least the same options at the same payment. Good luck.

I realize this is not a popular notion, but Chevy has a right to repair it, vs giving you a new car - read the warranty.

Even though it sucks I think they will take care of you, they can't argue since it's under the clear coat

Does the front and rear bumper covers have the same paint defect, if the Camaro is assembled anything like the plant I retired from the bumper covers aren't painted with the car body.

Just thought of another thing, the mirrors also wouldn't be painted at the same time as the body....in fact the mirrors many times come painted from another vendor.

It is possible that the first batch of 2014's might have happened to this since the first ones were bayed for so long.

I do not believe that mirrors and the fascias are painted at the same time as the body so I believe this damage happened after the car was built. The body gets painted all at once then baked and the doors are removed to have them built up with glass,wiring, mirrors etc. then they are reattached to the car. They should be able to repair this without any problem at all.

No issues with front bumper, roof or driver side door. Everything else has spots on it. Even the hood wrap has white dots all over it ( probably something differernt but still wont come up).
Yes the back bumper has a bunch on it. I should get a phone call today about it.
