Why 2002 Chrysler voyagers have body paint oxidation & when did the paint oxidation start and how can I be reimbursed for the repairs?

this has been a problem since the 80`s and it was caused by the top sealing clear coat not being mixed properly or the wrong/inferior clear coat was being used and not enough applied when the car was being painted. manufactures felt any where they could save a penny was more in their pocket. it affected some cars and not others for some reason and no they do not feel responsible for the problem.

I have purchased one Getz Prime in July 2007.Paint Bulging (Blister)observed on Right Rear Doorin the Inter Space of Door Handle and the Quarter Glass. This is a Clear Sign of Propagation of Corrossion...

Given the age of the paint unless it has been completely repainted already, it is NOT cost beneficial to fork out the money in attempting to fix the oxidizing paint in the indicated area. Even if you did fix the area, once a vehicle starts to shows signs of this deterioration, it is a clear sign of the age of the paint job. Thus, with the cost of paint rework, it is not in your best interest to have this professionally fixed. However, you may want to attempt to fix it yourself by bringing the immediate area down to the shell with a trusted grid sandpaper kit. Then you may always patch it yourself for about 5 percent of what it would cost to do professionally.

Paint job

Hi, this may be a bad application of clear coat in this specific area that was sprayed inappropriately by the painter. If the drying process was rushed during the painting session, this will usually happen at times.
