Bird Poo Issue
Hi, My son and I purchased a new clio dynamic S medinav tce 90 in November 2014.
The car is black in colour.
We are in an area where we have a lot of Starlings.
We have therefore had quite a lot of Bird Poo issues on the bodywork. We wash the car at least twice a week, if we see any droppings it is taken off immediately.
We have just noticed that there are about five areas where the paint work has dissolved at the droppings locations.
The paint does not appear to be resistant for any length of time against the droppings.
Is this an issue for Renault ?
We have two other cars which are parked at the same place, an audi (also black ) and a Mercedez ( blue ). Both these cars are over 5 years old and have suffered no issue with the droppings.
We spoke to the dealer and they stated that it will cost us £470 to have the paint work touched up. We asked if it was possible that there was a problem with the paint on the car ? They repeated it is not a warranty issue.
They have stated that it is not a warranty issue it is (fall out).
Any advice on this would be very helpful as we are worried that we have a problem with the paint on this car, that we will have to get touched up every 6 months.
thanks in advance
