Paint chipping on hood?
By Whodatt_99 on

Vehicle

2008 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Have a 2008 Avalon XLS, dark maroon with cream leather interior. Absolutely beautiful car inside and out. Extremely smooth ride and good horsepower when you need it. Big problem is the paint on the hood. Tiny chips have been appearing and the car only has 11,000 on it. My 2001 Tahoe has zero chips on hood and 136,000 miles on it. Either the paint or the application process is crappy, or maybe the clear coat is too thin. That is my only complaint but it is a big one.

Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, extremely smooth ride.

Suggested Improvements

Better quality paint or better paint application process. Need a bit more head room in models with sun roof - I am 6'3" and have no excess headroom; almost didn't buy the car because of it.
