SOURCE: paint peeling from my bmw
this usually occurs when the bar isnt prepaired properly for painting the car wash could have contributed but it was probably bound to happen if you get it repaired make sure they prepare and prime it properly before painting it

SOURCE: Peeling paint
My 96 Ram has been inside all of its life but is doing the same thing. I talked to a Dodge Technician and he said that the 96-98 body style didn't come with the best of paint jobs. Most of them only have two layers of clear coat when they should have four to six layers. The only solution to it is to put a better paint job on it. i hope this helps.

the dealer won't help you without getting paid. unfortunately, no one will. if you need to fix the paint, take it to a paint or body shop. it will cost you though.
if you're into doing it yourself, and it's not peeling in a big area, you can get some touch up paint that matches and try it yourself. i don't reccomend this for any area bigger than two hands though, it takes practice to look right.
the problem is sometimes hyundai's bonding agent (chemicals that stick the paint to the surface) doesn't work as well as it should. most bonds are harder on plastic, hyundai cars have trouble keeping their paint on the door handles, too.

Well it is a common problem with Toyota paint jobs. Unfortunatly a simple wax wont stop this from continuing all though it will hide it from site for a while. The problem has to do with the factory paint job, so a repaint (by Maco or any other botom dollar body shop) will only be a band-aid fix, and will most likely rear it's ugly head somewhere down the line. If you intend to sell the car this may be a way to make it look sharp and easier to sell. **** if you intend to keep it I would not sugest it as you will most definatly be dissapointed as a repaint is only a temporary fix for this issue.
To thoroughly fix this issue you would need to have the car professionally stripped (at least down to the collor coat) and repainted. This will be expensive, and most likely will cost more than it is worth for a car that old. I would start by checking to see if there was a factory recall on the paint for that year, make, and model.
