Paint Quality/Clear Coat Peel

454 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?

I have seen different parts of the car having this issue. Honda is known for having crap paint/clearcoat. As far as the orange peal. Just about every vehicle on the road has this going on. Even $100k vehicles. Quality control during manufacturing has gone down the drain in yrs past.
