Clearcoat peeling off
« on: July 21, 2021, 05:43:00 PM »
Just interested to see if anyone else is experiencing the clearcoat peeling off their Giulia. Mine is garaged the whole time (even in an underground carpark at work) and yet the front bumper is starting to look like a 1983 Toyota ...

Well you got a warranty claim. Sorry to say. Quote the Australian Consumer Law  if they say it is out of the 3 year warranty period.

Car may have been damaged then repaired in transit from factory to dealer - not uncommon.  Can happen to any manufacturer.

Quite true, but one would hope the repair job would last more than 4 years. ???
