Question about 1989 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

2008 Dodge Nitro Canada

My 2008 Nitro is peeling paint, all the way down to base. Not just clear coat. I has 62,000.00 kms on. Extended warranty to 100,000 km purchased. going to dealership this week, already sick about all the hassle I will have with. Not wanting to put up with piece meal painting and not necessarily even a new paint job as know that won't last in the long run. Want them to buy it back. Wonder where I will get this? Will see where this goes. Anyone any advice in this regard?

I hate to say, being 2008 and have that many miles, from my experienced working many years at many dealership, your fighting against a brick wall, you can threat them with all kind of law suit, all it will come down to is repaint and that is the best they will do. I hate to say that they going to make you run around in a circle by the time they have exhausted you, you will settle just for a paint job. Those machine from factory, I wish I can say its an excellent job it does but you going to get some defect. In you case if you take it a good paint shop and highly recommended, than you will get allot better paint job than a factory and you shouldn't even have a problems with it and the new paint job will probably outlast other parts compair factory paint on your car. good luck..and I hope that help some

I have 2007 lexus es350. The paint is peeling around the sunroof. What can I do?


would be the clear coat peeling you are seeing
should not need a full roof respray unless very bad

best option
get a quote from a car spray painter re-gel coat the roof
takes a fine sanding the roof area that is peeling
and a few coats of clear cote gel
and buff to a great finish

The paint on the hood of 06 Chrysler 300 peeling


U will find that this is a repair at some time. the mil thickness of the clear is to low and the uv light is breaking down the base coat causing the clear to peel and the elements to penatrate to the primer.
Probaly looking at $350 to $600 depending whether they blend the color on the fenders for a good match

Grille has been peeling for a year now and no one as any suggestions other than just replacing it! WIth the same thing!! For the same problem to happen again???? Is there any way to get Nissan to help with...


Not much you can do for peeling chrome from a grill. (I assume it is plastic). If it is metal you can check with a chrome shop toi see what they'd charge you to rechrome it. Another option is to check with after-market auto accessories places and see if they don't have an after market grill for your vehicle. Replacement is about all you can do. I would be very suprised if any extended warranties would cover peeling chrome. I think you are stuck with this one. You can consider having it painted. Cheapest replacement would be from your local junkyard or carparts.com ( on-line listing of junkyards) but you may just be buying someone else's problem. It oculd be much worse. There ahev been cars that litterally shed their paints clear coat and the owners were just out of luck. As far as why the dealer tried to get you to pay for the repair, that's easy; money. He would probably be able to charge you more for the repair than the extended warranty would pay.

How do i go about painting my wife's rav4 tire cover. What kind of paints do i use... eq metallic than a clear coat?


You need flexible primer and paint, base-coat and clear coat. The kind that body shops apply apply to bumpers. Go to your paint store and tell them you are doing plastic. They will sell you what you need. If you use regular paint, it will crack. You really should use the flexible paints.

2004 blue endeavor paint problem


This is a common problem with base coat clear coat paint, you may want to take it to the dealer and see if they will do something about it. GM and ford both had a problem with the clear coat fading and actually peeling away. If enough people complain they may do something about it. It has to basically be sanded down and repainted and clear coated again. The only sure way to keep this from happening is using a car cover when it’s in the sun. And blue is one of the worst I have seen for failure. But again it’s worth a shot to go to the dealer and see if there is a recall on the paint. The squeaky wheel gets greased
