Pour des dommages fait par des roches, je penserais vraiment pas que Kia paie une peinture... Mais ça dépend comment il te manque de peinture. La meilleur chose à faire, serait de prendre un rendez-vous avec ton dealer.

Prends un rendez-vous avec ton dealer et vois ce qu'ils peuvent faire... Si la peinture a vraiment un défaut de "fabrication" ou d'application, ils devraient faire quelque chose pour toi...

J'attends ma Forte, en noir aussi. J'espère que la peinture sera pas si fragile!!

I understand that fact that JP posted it in english and I will respond but I always like to see what everyone else said so I dont' repeat things... thats where its hard since i don't understand french to that level.

In any event...

JP, When you say pain chiping do you mean its peeling or just a deep chip? I have a black SX sedan and this problem comes with the territory of owning a black car. Black paint is the most beautiful in my opinion when well maintained but it can also be the worst paint if one does not know how to keep it nice. Here are my recommendations if in fact you are only seeing chips not peeling.

1. Invest $200 bucks and get a 3M clear bra for your front hood, the first 12". it is a very clear thin layer of 3M clear tape that is applied to your hood which act like one of those plastic hood defelctors... you just don't see it.

2. You should Polish your car once every 2 months and wax it 1 a month. this will keep your paint scratch and swirl free and keep your clearcoat nice and strong.

3. Never hand wash your car!!!! always do touchless, this will make sure no dirt on the car gets rubbed around while washing... causing scratchs.

4. I would also recommend clay baring your car once a month as well before wax and polish... works wonders.

Anyway... if chips are what you see... thats normal because its black and underneath the primer is silver. If its peeling... go to the dealership cause that isn't right. I've had my car now for a year with 33k on it and stone chips are a pain in the ass but with the right care you will not notice them.

first, I have done a wax the first month of my purchase, yes is a paint chip but it's to much .....my car is like a 10 years old car after only 7 month(9k)!!!....second, I have a plastic hood deflector.....and finally, I have also a pain chip on the back of the car, on the side of the box.....it's not suppose to have a big rock impact at this place.

I forgot, the black paint of kia doesn't has a clearcoat and my primer is white.

This is really worrying me...

The dealer called today to let me know my car is on a train, coming to MTL.

I REALLY hope my paint is going to be fine, 'cuz I like a MINT car. I'm not going to ride around in a brand new car that looks like it's 15 years old, definitly not. If the paint turns out to be crap, they'll be hearing about me that's for sure.

jp lessard: ca se peut pas qu'il n'y ait pas de clearcoat, soit dit en passant! La peinture sera matte sinon...
