AA All -
On a recent visit to a major RWP Honda dealership, I was shocked to observe what appeared to be very low paint quality on both the on display Civic and City. The paint was extremely grainy on most of the cars, especially those of a darker color, but colors like silver seemed better (bottom line: the issue appeared to be of quality inconsistency). On one City it (i.e. the grain) could even be felt if you slid your hand over the front fender.
I haven't found anyone else pointing this out on PW, so I'm wondering if no one else has observed this of late? Has Honda's paint quality become less reliable recently or is there another explanation?
After all consumers should never give up being vigilant of the right to get a decent product!
