We are finding that the paint is flaking off where the rear bumper joins the side panel.

I know it is wet from the rain but it should be clear to see that the paint is flaking off where the two panels rub together near the wheel end of the join.

We have shown it to the dealer and they are familiar with this issue. Apparently it is simply caused when the panels flex amnd rub together. Their solution is to remove the bumper, respray it. Fit a small piece of clear plastic to the interface between the panels and replace. They claim it happens on other models such as insignia too.

Strange because no other manufacturer as far as I know has this problem!
