Does anybody out there with a 97 Tibby FX have any problems with their paint job from the factory. My sunroof has about 8 small spots where the paint is starting to bubble and there are a couple of more spots on the roof and one on the hood where the paint is cracked underneath the clear coat <img src=/images/forums/snitz/mad.gif width=16 height=16 border=0> Does anybody know if there was a recall on the paint.

No, but it should be covered under warranty
My paint by my antenna base started to chip off, so it was covered under warranty and the dealer fixed it.

The 97 don't have the 10 yeat warrenty do they? Not sure, but it should be covered. The problem with the paint on Hyundais is that it is very thin!

Hey guys I bought a brand new 2001 tiburon and noticed the whole car had paint problems. The dealer tried saying that it was not covered but since i only had the car for a month they wrote a contract up sayin that they would fix it within a year. The best bet would be to check it out with the dealer.

I thought that the paint has a 3 year warrenty on it. It falls under deteration or something same as rust is what the dealer told me<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

if it's just the sunroof, tape off the rest of your car, go get some piss cans of paint, and color it orange, and remember the clear coat.

and it doesn't matter what your car color is, while you are at it, do the same to your mirrors too, then you are all ready for some chinese stickers on the car
