My car is outside the three-year warranty for the paint, but this is ridiculous.

I decided to drive my car in the rain (egregious I know) and a bunch of paint peeled off of the hood and roof of my Elantra. I pulled into a gas station and noticed some brand new "stripes" coming from the headlights and the windshield on the hood. I was absolutely mortified. It looks hideous. I was able to file with my insurance - they promptly denied me under my comprehensive coverage. The cost of repairs to fix this issues was to complete repaint so $2500 down the drain.

Elantra SEL

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles

Vehicle was repainted by the dealership THREE times and the clearcoat and paint just continue to bubble, and chip off on the roof within a few months of repainting.

Elantra SE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,497 miles

Hyundai would not fix because of the mileage--trade a 15 year old Toyota in with 180,000 miles and paint still looked good. Guess what my next car will be ?
