Honda Of America - Honda Paint,clear Coat Dissolving
UNITED STATES, FLORIDA -- In 2008 we purchased a brand new Honda Civic from the Proctor Honda dealership in Tallahassee, Florida. 2 and a half years after this the paint on the roof started to look funny, after reviewing others complaints about this we were informed they have a clear coat issue via reading lots of complaints online. When we contacted the dealership they blamed us at first for getting bird droppings on the car that never happened....then they said to contact Honda of America giving us a 1-800 number to contact them about it. Thus passing us off to someone else.
After spending lots of time talking with Honda of America they said it was due to us buying a blue car or dark colored car,(BS). After talking with them more they "agreed" to pay for half of the repainting of the roof. The real issue is now in 2013 the top of the trunk is looking really bad the body lines are fading and other spots are appearing. The little car runs good has had very little mechanic issues but this kinda neglect to fix its appearance is a waste as they are loosing a long time buyer of Honda cars (20 years owning a Honda)
Next car we purchase will likely not be a Honda and we tell other people of this issue and not to buy one either. ( I see a lot of these same cars driving around with huge clear coat issues plus other models and colors)
