Modus bad paint quality

Hi all,

We are struggling with Renault here in Belgium on
solving an issue we have with the metallic paint.
The following set of pictures illustrates 3 issues

1. Paint does not resist bird poo. Ours is the only car in the
street that has paint peeling off as a result of this.
2. Bad coating finish
3. Bad paint finishing on the interior.

Since Renault (local garage and Belgian distributor) has
been so unhelpful is dealing with this issue, claiming
this is all our problem - as if we are mistreating the
car - they used the term "external causes" .... erh...
isn't the exterior the place where the car is intended
to be used????

I would really like your support in terms of similar experience
and how they eventually were resolved (hopefully)

Many thanks in advance!!!

Welcome to the forum Serge!

How old is the car and what mileage has it done?

Modern paints are water based for environmental reasons and are not nearly as durable. This applies to all makes, not just Renaults.

Very interesting post and backed up with pictures to explain which is great.

OK firstly have you written to Renault customer service or is this just an issue with a poor dealer unwilling to assist you ?

From your pictures it would appear that "maybe" the door paint has been damage by the seatbelt ?

It may be worth getting the written opinion of an independant bodyshop or paint specialist to back up your warranty claim.

Manufacturers have to unfortunately guard themselves against warrenty claims and therefore tend to argue the toss rather than hand out the dosh. You sound like your not going to be easily worn down by them and good on you. Maybe someone passing by this forum who is experienced in bodywork can offer some advice ?
