Honda paint failure

Anyone else have problems with Honda paint, such as cracks in the paint? I was told by a dealership they will not fix because it has been wrecked...it's a new car and under warranty AND has never been in an accident.

Tell the dealer to prove it has been wrecked by you. Ask if they know something that was not revealed when you purchased the vehicle, such as it was damaged in transit or while it was on the lot before you bought it? Tell them if this vehicle was damaged prior to your purchase then you will have the contract voided. Let them know you will not drop this matter. Call the Honda hot-line number that is in your vehicle manuel. Ask if they are having complaints about the paint cracking. Be polite but firm. Ask when they might have a factory representative in your area that could look at it.

If you have no success and still think it is a factory defect call Anthony Salvatore, an attorney in Beckley that handles matters such as these. He does not get paid unless he collects.

I actually contacted Honda America and was told that the paint is not covered under warranty, new car or not. There is also no recall for Honda paint. I started researching and found some forums with the same problem as I after posting here, and on those forums no one really was being helped either.

My last car was American and it had problems from the start also..maybe I'm unlucky. Just wanting to see if any Honda owners out there have this problem too.
