Paint Quality/Clear Coat Peel

453 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  glanzera21
Hey all, newly joined the forum.
I own a 13 ex-l with roughly 119k miles on it. For the last few years or so, the clear coat on my rear bumper has quite literally peeled away and sometimes brittle to the point where it’ll break off when hanging off. 90% of the clear coat on the top part of my rear bumper (the bottom of the trunk entrance) is gone, however this issue hasn’t occurred with any other panels. Key note is that this car is only parked outside, but I don’t see how it would just hit the rear. Does anyone else have this issue?

New cars can experience damage during transport and painted. The dealer does not have to disclose this information if the damage is minor. The rear bumper may have been repainted before the car was put on the lot for sale. Since it's the rear bumper only that's experiencing the issue, that would be my guess.
