    Hi all i am a new member and have just bought a autocruise jazz 2010 from a very large dealer about 4 weeks ago. When they power washed it some paint came off the bonnet which was then resprayed and is very good, problem is the roof has started to peel at the front has anyone had this problem before and what is the solution. The van is going back to the dealers on tuesday and it would be nice to talk to them in a manner that sounds as if i know what i am talking about. The van is a mwb silver pvc. your help would be appreciated. sonny

    Hmmm, question. Was the paint peeling before the power wash? Is the van a factory finish silver? Are there any white bits showing anywhere?
    The reason I ask is that the van could have had an aftermarket respray and the roofline may not have been prepared properly (99% prep, 1% spray) and is peeling now because of it, the cheapest colour is white because their are millions of them and the pigment is cheaper I am reliably informed. Both are high impact places and may have been "blown over" to cover stone chips?

    Hi did'nt notice it when i picked the van up, looks like the original paint job the paint is coming off just above the windscreen and also started to peel a bit further back showing underneath a off white which i think is plastic or glassfibre it is a peugeot boxer base vehicle i dont think it is stone chipping.
    It is a low mileage at 13000 mls but a lot of owners. cheers sonny

    Peugeot ?? Fiat ?? It might help ?

    It's a paint problem so it's virtually impossible to say without seeing the vehicle. But it's a vehicle problem rather then a van problem if you see what I mean.

    Take it to a body shop and see what they say.

    There's been many paint problems with the x250, more so with the metallic finishes peeling off. I owned one which started on the roof and spread to other areas which had to be re-sprayed. I also experienced split roof seams which let in water.

    Yes the peeling is mainly above the front windscreen and down the offside by the seam the body shop reckons poor preparation and spraying so the 11 other niggles are being done now at the dealership then into the body shop on mon hopefully then alright.

    not a motorhome, but I have had the same with a brand new 4x4. the paint just started peeling like it had not stuck to the base coat. the only solution is a total respray including loads and loads of prep to remove faulty paint. the main dealer contacted the factory who confirmed a bad batch sprayed by faulty robots

    A vehicle with faulty paint should be rejected and a replacement sought.. A car loses its originality when paint is done..

    mine was a special order so a bit to complicated to reject plus having to wait for a replacement to be built. I was given the dealership's demonstrator vehicle for about 10 days. so it wasnt a major issue. Paintjob when returned was better than the factory finish so didnt devalue the vehicle

    They will have put plenty of effort into it to make sure it didn't happen again.

    I have rejected a vehicle with bad paint. It was a brand new Mini Cooper S back on 2003. I refused to accept repairs to the car and rejected it with no problems whatsoever... :LOL:(y):(:D:D:D

    The difference between a M/H and a car is the converter blames the the base vehicle and the base vehicle maker blames the converter -Not as easy ;)
