Toyota Corolla Paint Problems



  • Just for the record I own a 2007 corolla LE "Blue color", it chipped/lost paint on the hood and looks ugly. Everything else is in perfect working condition, dealer serviced etc but I cannot put it up for sale because the ugly hood only invites embarrassing offers/trade-in. So I have no choice but to keep it. And like many others I got a quote for $1200 and one body shop offered to do it for $600 but he would replace entire hood and I thought it was a bad idea.

    I would like to know of anyone with a Canadian Toyota Corolla, with the paint peeling on it. I have a 2009 Toyota Rav4, with the paint peeling on it. I am gathering info on Toyota's with paint problems. Preferably 2007-2014's. Preferably Canadian manufactured, as I am not sure of complaint process in the U.S.

  • Buyer Beware - My wife owns a 2010 Rave 4 and the paint is peeling off the roof just above the windshield. The car is one year beyond the 3 year warranty. No help is available from either the dealership or Toyota. Upon inspection the paint in this area is blistering and evidently begins peeling off from wind and rain. I have owned more than 10 new automobiles of different makes in my lifetime. I usually own my cars for 8 to 10 years. I have never had a problem with the paint finish on any of them. Toyota, never again!

    I have a 2005 Red Corolla. Paint was ok for first 5 years or so, after that it began to fade fast. Discoloration, chips in the hood, etc. The rear of the roof is bubbling. The car still runs great, but I doubt I can actually get anything on a trade with it so I'm stuck with 'running it into the ground' if that is even possible mechanically with a toyota.

    I was thinking about buying another Toyota, but given these problems I'm leaning toward something that isn't going to start experiencing leprosy after 5 years.
  • I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla S and the entire roof is rust. The paint completely faded away within a few months. What kind of paint does this? I have never seen a vehicle do this. Now I suppose I have to spend more money on my Corolla to get a entirely new paint job.
  • My Corolla is a mess from the peeling top coat . What a shame The car runs great No issues at all except the pain I hate to get rid of it simply because of a lousy paint job, It is all over the car and I have not used anything hash on it
