Are you the first owner of your Corolla? Could you or a previous owner have used an abrasive compound that might have removed the clear coat finish? I know polymer compounds such as "2001" and "NU Finish" (and I'm sure there are others) have been mentioned to remove clear coat if not used as directed. I mean I myself use NU Finish and just love the once a year protection it provides but you really can not over use this or compounds like it.

Yes I'm the first owner of my 2006 Toyota Corolla, and no I have not used a clear coat finish.

Yeah, I went to the Toyota dealer had it inspected and they said they would not cover my paint chipping.
I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla and not only is my paint chipping on my roof, I also have paint fading starting on my doors, the front hood, and the top of my trunk.
This does not add up. I see cars that are 10 + years old and their paint is not pealing or chipping. I truly think that if we get enough Toyota owners that have similar issues, that we can try to start a class action to resolve and put our issues to rest.

I so agree, count me in! I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla that is chipping on my roof, it looks rusted as well from all the chipping. On my front hood, my car doors, and my back trunk my paint is starting to fade. I also have a neighbor that has the same issue.
Now I see cars that are 10+ years old, and I dont see paint chipping nor fading on their cars. Not as bad as my 2006 Toyota Corolla.
Now we have invested and spent too much money on our Corolla's, for us to have to deal w/ Toyota's cheap paint jobs. I am not willing nor able to have more money come out of my pocket to re-paint my car!

Sorry I am just now responding 3 years later, I just now learned of this Toyota Forumn. If it not too late, I am interested in signing a petition asking for a recall and or going for a class action suit. We all do have a case. I have a 2006 Corolla and have chipping and also fading on my Indigo blue car. I also took it to a Toyota dealer, and they said they would not cover my paint issue.
That this does not add up! I see cars that are 10+ and they do not have paint defects near as bad as our Toyota issues.

Perhaps you misunderstood me, clear coat is what the factory applied to the paint on your 2006, I was just wondering if something you used or have been using on your 2006 Corolla could have removed this clearcoat as some waxes, polishes, etc. might do.

Yes, perhaps I did misunderstand you. No, I did not use anything that would have done as much damage to my car, as of what I am dealing with right now. Through much investigation and research that I have done regarding my car issue, the bottom line is that with my car only 5 years old, I should not have the paint defects that I'm dealing with right now.
As mentioned, that I have seen cars 10 + years old and they do not have paint defects near as bad as my paint defects.

Sorry, you can't use the forums to organize legal action or get petitions signed.

There can be people who have the same paint defect issues who have no idea that this forum even exists, I just found out about this forum.
