Paint Peeling Enquiry on 2010 Accent Onyx blue I noticed after my first touch less car wash after approx 1 month the trunk seems to have a few spots of paint that are peeling and was wondering if anyone else had similar issues, i did read some on the Sonata threads but figured i would ask specific to the accent. I imagine and hope if it's just a small issue i can buy a pen patch it and wait and see if it gets worse before blowing the warranty coverage 1 month 2k km's in.

I did call the dealer and they said to bring it in right away so that is a good sign.

It's peeling and you can see the steel underneath or there's paint under the paint (as if it had been repainted)?

Just remembered it's the bumper so it may be plastic but looks kind of brownish underneath and looks chipped right down. I can see two distinct layers.

take it in before it spreads and looks like crap. especially if its the bumper, because if it starts flaking, they may just say you hit something.

Take it to the dealer. Also, the warranty on paint is 36/36000. I bought an 09 Accent dark when I worked at a Hyundai Dealership. I drove it off the truck, drove it on the PDI and then bought it. Ha Ha pretty cool. Anyway mine had a spot under the rear quarter window that paint was coming off. You could see it was from bird crap but they fixed it anyway.
