    Unhappy Issues with new corolla 2012 black paint

    Salam,

    i got a brand new Corolla Gli A/T Black on Friday and on Saturday after a wash I noticed that there were white dots all over the car.

    I went and checked in all the cars in my neighborhood and all of them had the same issue.

    can other people confirm this from their experience ???

    Already filed a warranty claim at Toyota

    The fact that you are saying that the same problem is present on cars in the neighborhood seems as if it's paint spray. Was there any paint work going on around your house.. Close by ?

    If it's just simple paint spray I'm guessing a good claying and a finishing polish should do the trick.

    Hope this helps.

    I think u parked it somewhere at a place where paint work was going on...same thing happened with my car , I parked it near liberty and, workers were painting fence with a spray gun....after a day I felt dots on my whole car and surface was rough.....Detailing crew team recommended me CLAY BAR...i did it by myself and it all gone and paint surface became smooth and all black with metallic reflection.

    Just use a torch on the hood and if there are these white dots then its standard .... I have seen them in more than 15 cars today .... Some which are 24 km away from my location ... So that cancels out that theory

    wash the car and make sure it is dry, then go wash your hands and dry them. move ur hand over this area, tell me if it feels smooth or rough.

    Guys .. Am at Toyota and they have admitted their mistake .... It's just that no one complains about this and just takes the car as it is..afterwards they realize this issue and get charged for this.
    But am amazed that all the brand new cars here at the showroom have the same issue... Even the ones on display.

    i just said ... My money is halal and hard earned that's y I see every detail and its not acceptable ....

    So am getting issue fixed and with a new Bluetooth device installed in the car as part of the new corolla promotion free of charge ..... Yeaa
    thanku everyone for the advice ... Please be careful when u get ur new car ...
    take a blue led torch light and never take delievery of the car at dawn ... Only in sunlight and parked in the sun ..

    Do not let the worker rub dry cloth on the car ... As they are only trying to be efficient in front of u for some money ..

    is this white stuff like milky splotches underneath the paint? Or are these white spots superficial and you can feel them if you touch the surface with your hand in a plastic bag?

    I have experienced the white stuff underneath the paint on a Land Rover Discovery and a W124 mercedes, both original factory paint. They would only happen when water dried on it - Those marks would disappear if the vehicle was left in the sun for about an hour.

    No documentary explanation, sorry.
