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.

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.

I have a 2006 dark blue Toyota Corolla and have a paint defect where the roof of my car is chipping off. My hood is starting to peel as well as the trunk of my car, and my side top of my doors are starting to fade.
#226 of 280 Paint STILL a Problem on '10?

I have been perusing this and wondering exactly what years are affected by the paint problem. We have a 2010 Corolla bot in Sept 2010...a year ago. Should I expect paint problems? Anything I can to now to PREVENT problems?

It's practically a brand new car, why would you expect paint problems? Wash it regularly, use quality automotive finish application products, avoid stones, don't follow too close to the vehicle in front of you and you could expect to get long life out of your paint job. My opinion being a Corolla owner about five times over, and I stress it's only my opinion, is that much of this "bad paint hype" could be traced back to the owners care they take with their car. Following the above tips I'm sure will prevent most of the problems we read about on this board.

Agree. Even one of the Edmunds hosts said that they get a lot of paint complaints about ALL car brands because of the newer environmentally-friendly paint.
Personally, I have seen that newer cars of all brands do stone chip a bit more than 10 years ago, but it is not a big deal, even to a person like me!

Just found this blog. 2003 Toyota Corolla SE charcoal grey. Same problem everyone else is having. Is anyone making any progress in getting this addressed or are we stuck paying ut of pocket for a new paint job?
#230 of 280 paint listers on my 2012 Highlander

I bought a 2012 Highlander a week ago and today I found 3 tiny paint blisters (bubbles) on one of the doors. They are tiny so I did not think I would spot them when I drove out the car. Is it a normal problem? Should I be concerned about rust might bebing to come out?
