T31 Paint Issues


Good Morning,

Is anyone else having paint issues with their 2009 (MY10) ST-L TI? I am pretty disappointed with the paint in some of the areas (yes I know it is 6 years old now)and interested to hear if anyone else had any issues? I have taken it to 2 places who were both very surprised when i advised the age of the car vs the damage. I have spoken to Nissan who advised there has been no other reported issues.

It looks to me to be the clear coat is breaking down. Does the car stay out in the weather?

Doesn't always stay out of the weather, is parked outside for a large portion of the day whilst at work.

Suggestions to rectify? I assume only option really is respray?

Thanks

Re:


That's strange indeed and the fade suggests that the car is sitting under the sun 24x7.

Has it been re-sprayed before at all? If you bought it 2nd hand you can have a smash repairer test the thickness of the paint to tell you if it's the original paint or not.
