Re: megane coupe paint defect

Hi there and welcome.

Unfortunately, your paintwork came with a 3-year warranty, so that has expired (perhaps if it had been mentioned earlier)...

You really have 2 choices; get an expert's opinion and present it as a manufacturing defect, or accept it and pay for it to be repaired.

Although, even if it is a manufacturing defect, you may not get 100% reimbursement, as you have failed in your obligation to raise the fault at the earliest point and therefore mitigate any further loss/damage. In other words, you have contributed to the state it now is in, due to your inaction.

Personally speaking, I'd take it on the chin and accept an expensive life-lesson, rather than protract the situation further.

P.S. it looks like a bird's dropping to me also.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Sorry have to agree with Velsatisfied and Renault, I have done my time in the motor trade, 20 odd years for my sins. my opinion would be the same it looks a lot like bird droppings. worse thing for car paintwork, as soon as it appears you should wash it off.

Looks like its been Hodges in the past a reaction can occurre any time if the filler wad not fully hardened when the paint was put on a spray shop will confirm if this is the case
If it is and you have owned the car from new you can get the paint done under an extended waranty

Re: megane coupe paint defect

thas horrible.

Ive never seen that sort of reaction on unrepaired paint, bird poo or not.

Then again I allways try n remove the bird poop asap.
Is that cayenne colour?
As above the ultimate warranty may be gone,what point on the door is that?
