Too bad for the paint job

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


After owning the vehicle for six months, the paint in the rear quarter panels is chipping by the rear doors. I took this to the dealer and they nearly laughed at me. The service manager encouraged me to file a fraudulent insurance claim to so that they could get compensated and repaint the vehicle for me. Body shop people stated that this is a design flaw and a lot of Lancer's are having this problem. I was actually told to just budget for body work every year. Such a shame because I love the car otherwise.

Best Features

I like all the features that came standard.

Worst Features

Do a proper paint job, make mudflaps standard and add an aftermarket laminate or some sort of edge cover over along the bottom frame of the vehicle and the wheel wells.
