2006 Lexus GS300 Clear coat is peeling

Asked by Nov 01, 2017 at 08:34 PM about the 2006 Lexus GS 300

Question type: General

This is more of a cautionary tale than a question.
The clear coat on my husband’s Lexus GS300 is peeling off. This is the
second Lexus we have owned that this happened to. The first was  2001 RX.
Lexus will not fix the problem - they 'respectfully declined to repair'. When I
traded my RX in on another, brand new 2012 RX, the dealership took $3400
off the trade in value of my old RX because THE CLEAR COAT WAS
PEELING!!!! I was ready to leave and gt a different vehicle but mu husband
knew I really wanted that matador red RX.
Once, the dealership had the nerve to say it was because we left it outside.
Seriously, that is what the service advisor said.  We also had the head paint
guy at 'a' Lexus body shop accuse my husband of having the car painted
(which he didn't).  Then, he said we had to have purchased the car used,
when we bought it brand new.  It has been a very frustrating experience.  I
have checked with friends who have Lexus vehicles that are older than ours
- their clear coat is not peeling.
Here is a picture of the peeling
