    Angry Crappy Paint on Hood

    So my hood has started fading and peeling badly on my 02 TA. My car is red so it really looks bad since the hood is starting to turn orange. I've heard rumers that GM had problems with either the primer or paint and that they've takin the car to a dealership and got it fixed for free. Has anyone else had this problem or heard anything about this? Thanks

    havent heard about that before, there guna say its sun damage i believe, the peel that your talking about is on the sides between the t-tops and rear window, early in the morning cant think of what its called, GM had a problem with that and for the most part fixed most of them for free but ive never heard of anything about peel/fading on the hood

    how long have you owned your car, was it or is it parked outside, how well is it maintained and do you polish and wax it????

    i think it all depends on where you live and if the car has been garaged when not in use and pm. my last 02 ta was red and i sold with 97,00 mi on it and the paint was still like new and my 02 firehawk i just bought in july of last year with 45,000 mi on it and the paint isnt in near as good of shape.
