So my car now has 12k miles on it and I got it in November of 2014. I've noticed that I have an obscene amount of paint that is chipped! There has got to be at least 20 different spots! A few of which are definitely noticeable from a slight distance without even looking for them. I've taken one long highway road trip and the rest is just normal driving. It's pretty frustrating that I buy a brand new car and the paint is this poor. My first Cruze I had(got totaled) had no where near the paint chips this one does, and my first one had way more highway miles on it! I also rarely drive on dirt roads and when I do, I literally do about 25mph to minimize chips and such. I feel like this one got a poor paint job or something...

I'm just super frustrated with how much paint has chipped off for such low miles. Does anyone else have this problem? Also where is the best source to get touch up paint?

Where are the chips at? I see you live in Michigan and if they are anything like Ohio this winter,they put a lot of gravel in the salt they put down because of running low on salt. I noticed on mine had more chips than the previous year.

If they are near the rear doors, make sure you doors are aligned properly.

Front fenders, bumper, hood and roof. Really wishing I would of put a clear wrap on the front of my car when I got it...

I could understand that however my first cruze had wayyyy less paint chips in it.

If I wanted a car with a bunch of imperfections in the paint. I would of bought a used car and saved tons of money lol.

I find little chips every other day in my cruze. I have seen a pattern from people with them complaining about the paint. Kind of sucks. So I keep a bottle of touch up paint in my car. Plan on hopefully getting it painted this summer or next.
