Question about Tiburon's paint warranty

I'm in a situation where the paint from the car's door handle is peeling off. When I first purchased it 2 month ago, it was just a minor scratch, so I didn't tell anything to dealer. But as time passed, this paint started to peeling off and now that surfaced is almost 1.5 CM in diameter (which really looks ugly).

I read the paint warranty from the booklet, and it says,
<BLOCKQUOTE id=quote><font size=1 face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id=quote>quote:<hr height=1 noshade id=quote>Paint repairs are covered for the first 36 months from the date of original retial delivery or date of first use or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Some minor cosmetic imperfections that are visible at delivery are covered for 12 months from the date of original retial delivery or date of first use, or 12,000 miles, whichever occurs first.<hr height=1 noshade id=quote></BLOCKQUOTE id=quote></font id=quote><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size=1 id=quote>

So, if I take my car to dealer, are they actually going to "repaint" the door handle? Or just give me crappy touch-up paint?

I went to my dealership and all they did was give me a little jar of touch up paint and told me to goto town on it.Bastard's i even got the extented warrenty for paint protection and all they gave me was a little jar.They didnt even give me clear coat.So i went to this paint mixer i know and he hooked me up.After i got done airbrushing the touch up i took a copy of the recipe to the dealership and told the manager what they did to me.He gave me the money back for my supplies and a little extra for the time i had to spend doing it<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>
