Over on "Fit Freak" there are quite a few people complaining about paint peeling from there bumpers. Hasn't happened to me yet, although I really don't do that close of inspection. But I will soon.

I read all the people over at "Fit Freak" complaining about paint peeling at the seam where the bumper meats the body.
I then checked mine and yup it's peeling on one corner. Argh!!!! I called American Honda and filed a complaint which will go to someone. They then recommend going to dealer to repaint. Can a good repaint be done nowadays? I hate bad paint jobs. At least it's the plastic and nothing else. Anyone else?

Haven't got my Fit yet, but I've had repaints of plastic bumpers on previous Hondas due to minor scrapes. Never had a problem - looked good and held up well. The trick is to find a good body shop. My local Honda dealer has a good body shop, and is also the first place that my insurance company recommends I go, so it's a no-brainer.

It seems as though the paint peeling by the bumper (where it meets the car panel) is increasing. Going to check mine everyday. Fitfreak.net has pictures.

No worries. The paint that is peeling is high quality Honda paint.

I don't know that he's being sarcastic; Honda is known far and wide for poor quality paint.

"far and wide..."
Any particular models?
Out of all the Hondas my family has had, we have never had problems with the original paint even on 17 or 18 year old cars. Knock on wood, no problems have appeared yet on the Fit.
My last car however was a white Corolla made in a factory Toyota shares with GM. When I washed the car, the paint would come off in my hands.
