I have a silver pearl metallic 2006 Odyssey. When I look down the side of the van at an angle on a bright sunny day (especially from the back), I noticed that the whole side of the van is covered in vertical dark blotches. The drivers side is worst than the passenger side. It's looks as if the van was painted in a up and down motion and the paint is not mixed evenly. Every silver 05-07 Odyssey I see on the road has the same blotchy uneven paint job. I talked to the dealer and they said that this is normal with silver paints. I find this hard to believe because my neighbor's 2007 silver Toyota Sienna doesn't have this problem. Has anyone else noticed this on their silver Odysseys or is it just me? I'll never buy a silver car again.
