Angry De-laminating clear coat

Look at my album to see the de-laminating of the clear coat on my 2008 Yaris. Toyota has basically told me to pound sand. Is there anyone else having these issues?

I have an 07 with about 64k miles and my clear coat is coming off right above the back window on the driver side. Not sure what to do about it either but its not like i don't take care of my car, i think its just the California sunshine taking it's toll on the poor toyota paint.

The Yaris paint isn't good. It is happening, i guess especially on Absolutely Red hatch's.

I am getting small spots on my roof I am going to have to try and wet sand and respray the roof in spring... I am also familiar with toyotas lack of customer service, the smelly a/c problem that they refuse to fix even though there is a TSB is my pet peeve....

Just had my Blazing Blue washed and waxed on 02/02. Looking good.
I have about 75k on my '08. Wash it less than once a month. Usually drive thru washes.

California weather. Never garaged, never covered. Sits outside on the street.

Man, that sucks about that ugly peeling look. It looks bad. Sorry man.

Wow just looked at your pics, that is truly horrible. The only positive thing I can say is that at the rate it is peeling off you won't have to sand very much before respraying it with clear...

From what I've observed over the years (although I've never owned a red car), it's hard to keep a red (even original) paint job on any inexpensive car from fading,

Same is happening along the bottom of my front lip. Surely the sand, salt and general road grit blasting it continuously contributed. Perhaps a repaint is in order next spring.

my blazing blue hatch is doing the same thing on a lesser scale. I was going to put on a lip kit this summer but then the roof started peeling so a total repaint is in order . First estimate was $3000, which is total bullshit.....

Just wondering, what wax or other paint protective stuff did you guys appy to your cars? It would be ironic if you all used the same stuff. Not saying that is the cause as it appears to be a quality issue. But still would be interesting information to see if any corrolation exists. By the way, sorry for your luck....that really sucks.

Where in (or which general part of) California? Needles? Barstow? Indio? Death Valley? . My retired next door neighbor (who only garages his Honda at night) had the same problem (happened when he lived in YW member esse10's town on another side of our metro).

Sad commentary that you would have to fight them about it and that you would get different (location) peeling after the roof repaint. I assume you're parking space is outside (not in a garage) ?

My mother in laws blazing blue 07 only has a little clearcoat left on the roof. I am tossing around the idea of sanding the flake off and having a good friend of mine vinyl wrap the roof.
