TAMPA, FLORIDA -- I talked to Mr [snip] on or about 8 months ago reference a problem with the paint on the bumper, He told me He has to get in contact with the representative from AMERICAN HONDA and he will call me back in 3 weeks which He never did, Now the Paint of top of the car is peeling off. On 9 July 2012 went to Hondaland in Tampa Fl where I bough the Car again, ask one of the Sales representative if I buy a car how long is the warranty on the Paint, He said 8 Years, to sell me the Car, went to Mr [snip] and again, he said the representative from AMERICAN HONDA his Father died and will call me in 2-3 weeks. They said anything to sell you a Car, but when it comes time to back it up you have to go through Hell & back, the next letter will be to the BBB & The STATE, anybody else have this problem.

When you buy a Honda you expect quality and that includes the paint job. One big problem all the auto manufactures have is the EPA. By Government mandate all of the paints must be less pollutant to the environment. To comply with this the paint is less hard (fewer toxins)making it susceptible to stone chips and peeling. Honda should make good on this but understand why this happened.
