Hi
I have recently bought a 57 Type s 2.2.
I have noticed that there is some paint peeling at the top right of the boot area..
The car is aparently under warranty til september.
Is this covered at all and what should I do to resolve it? Any help appreciated.



thanks

Covered by your warranty
Take it in immediately.
They should photograph it and send it to Honda who will, more than likely, honour the claim.

Took it to honda who then sent me off to their bodyshop to get the paint depth checked.. which was fine and the paint was original. They are putting in a claim and should get back to me within a few days.. So watch this space :)

Andy,

Ive just noticed the exact same thing happening to my CTR in exactly the same place!

Luckily, ive a few months warranty left, i will mention this to the stealers when i go see them on 12/06/10. (For the centre caps they are replacing under warranty....). This will be my 4th warranty claim, ive had the car about 9 months.:mad:

Let us know how the finish is...

I have something similar with my Milano Red but half an inch further up. The paint isn't actually peeling, it just seems to have worn thin without any cause - save shoddiness.

Oh another :( i meant to say mine is exactly in the same spot as the picture it looks identical ! I think the paint warranty is longer than 3 years isn't it? As my 3 year warranty is nearly up!

I spoke to the honda bodyshop for the north east last night as i was picking car up after colour coding, he said he'd never seen that and they do all the warranty work. But take it to the dealer as should be able to get honda to pay for it.

very shocking as two people on here have it in the same place and one says its wearing thin it must be down to the water based paint cracking it may be a stress point as the suspension is rather harsh,just shows if it can crack and peel on its own then its no wonder the paint chips so easy with stone chipping.

I had the exact same problem on my 57 plate type-s gt (milano). The paint literally just flaked off in the top corner so took it to the dealer and they forwarded the claim to honda uk. Paint is covered for 10 years so they have to repair it.

Got exactly the same problem with my 07 plate type r-gt (milano). It's going into the dealers on Friday for a service so will show them the problem then. By the way, mine is also peeling, albeit on slightly, on the left hand side as well.

Ok so an update on this.....

The dealer said to me that as the car is 'nearly' 3 years old they cant do anything (i have about 3 weeks warranty left). Is that true? Should i be contacting Honda UK for some assistance? Is the dealer talking BS as one of the threads above say paint is covered for 10 years:confused:?

I even took it to a Honda approved bodyshop who the dealer uses for resprays and they confirmed the car had NOT been involved in a accident and had NEVER been painted before.

Cheers
