    I really can't believe I keep finding paint flaws. I realize it's probably a waste of time trying to get Dodge to stand behind this.

    The only way I will feel better it to re-paint, and do it properly.

    I'm sick to my stomach.

    Can always bring if to their attention as others have. If its really that bad, let them offer to repaint it. Find who they'd use and check them out. If it needs a repaint, sure why not. Even better if they will pay for it

    My paint is real bad big white Sanding marks all over car 21 or soo Dodge rep wants to sand the car down and re-clear coated and then wants me to sign off on it , I don't want my car sanded I think the new technology of paint correction is a better way to go he doesn't want to do it even though it's cheaper and I would sign off on that still battling with Dodge ... Here's what they look like summer 12 inches and summer smaller 21 of them .. image.jpg

    need pics to determine if your being too fussy or not

    if it had paint issues i would not have accepted the car to begin with...didnt you see them on day 1?

    paying $65k for a car with major(i assume) paint flaws seems foolish if you dont want to accept them

    should have found another car...i put $5k down credit card on mine.....if when i arrived i saw flaws i would have backed out and found another...

    Dodge puts out garbage paint.....you didnt have to buy it

    i have a few dirt specs in mine...have to look real close...nothing anyone will notice and nothing i care about...

    Dodge has had bad paint since at least 2011 that i know of....something everyone should check before buying a car......another reason i dont order my cars....i want to see them before buying or locking myself in....cant imagine waiting 9 months for a car to be built and then it shows up F'd up.

    show me the pictures

    I agree with Huggy, why accept these cars with flaws? Not calling anyone out in specific, but generally speaking...why even accept it? Some complain about the most minute things, again, not saying this is the case here, just saying in general. Dodge paint hasn't been good for a long time, thats why I always get white when I get a dodge. With all the paint issues some are seeming to be having, I feel like I won the lottery because I dont have any flaws on mine...or, maybe Im just not looking hard enough.
