Nissan Complaint - Great Car, Rotten Paint Job!
GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA -- I very recently leased a new, 2009, Nissan Cube. Love the car and the pretty color, scarlet red. However, the paint scratches at the drop of a hat, literally. I have had the car since April 2010 and it is covered in scratches. A leaf on a tree rubbed against it and scratched the paint to the primer. I rubbed some gum off of the paint that had spattered on it from the road and the rub marks stayed in the paint. I gently buffed the paint with a product I have to remove the scratches but no luck. I am worried that by the time my lease is up, this car will look like it has been through the wars. The front end of the car is covered with pits from whatever hits it when just driving normally. I contacted Nissan's complaint department, no response. I will actually be taking it to the dealer to complain and see what kind of response I get from them.
The dealer had made note of some scratches upon delivery of the vehicle that they said they would fix. Had I known that this would be a precursor
of things to come I seriously would not have taken delivery of the car!
