#598 of 626 2012 Black Granite Metallic Paint - Scratches-Car Washes
Jan 13, 2013 (6:27 pm)
I have a Black Granite Metallic Paint 2012 Chevy Tahoe. The paint looked wonderful when I first bought it. Now it scratches VERY easily in car washes. The scratches can go past the black paint to hit white layer underneath or you can see how the brushes rubbed againt the paint and has brush mark damage.
I've gone to different car washes, so it's not the car wash, it's the defective paint. Is anyone else having this problem?
P.S. I've had a black Honda Civic and a black Chevy Blazer in my past. I have never had these problems with paint.
Advice? (Besides worthless touch-less car washes?)

I'd avoid mentioning car washes when showing this to the dealer. Most modern drive-thru car washes today use soft chamois-type strips and don't scratch unless you really have a ton of dirt/mud on your truck.

Mar 10, 2013 (4:29 pm)
i got turned onto leasing by a friend but im not sure its an option for me really..he leases a new tundra crew max for just 325 per month. maybe its an exaggeration but he says it would be twice that if he were to be buying it with financing.
i have contacted a dealer and they have gave me a internet price for 48,854. the sticker price is 56845. is that a good deal? what is an average lease price for this vehicle? im not sure but i hear stories of people having leases for 600, 700 maybe 800 per month. im looking for more like 400-500 maybe 550 as a max...but it would have to be loaded with extras to have that much of a payment...
im not so skilled at the driving the price down at the dealer. are there things to discuss? reasons why price should go down....mostly every car i have ever bought the dealer is dead set in price...i might can get them to budge a litle on extra dealer fees....but thats it...
anyway nobodys posted here in 30 days so not dont want to put much more and not get a response...thanks for your help in advanced

The monthly payment is just one component in leasing. You'll also have an upfront payment and depending on the vehicles worth at the end of the lease, you may have to make up the difference, especially if you put too many miles on it. You really need to study up on the subject so you know what's in store going in.

Thanks. I hate this paint so much. I've seen other complaints on other Chevy cars and this paint. I'm in the process of selling it right now. Junk. Can't even believe I paid extra for this horrible paint.

What kind of car wash are you going thru?

Did you recently purchase a car from the Detroit 3 (GM, Ford or Chrysler) after avoiding these domestic vehicles in the past? What made you change your mind? A reporter would like to ask about your experience. If you can help, please contact predmunds.com by Friday April 26th 2013.
