shocking vaxhaull paint

Post  roccy on Sat Jan 22, 2011 5:04 pm

verry bored this morning and dint have much to do so i got out the bucket and sponge and decided to give my sisters car a verry overdue wash.. and bearing in mind it is a 2007 vauxhall corsa i must of found a good dosen rust spots and blemishes all over the car.

its merly 4 years old and the paint is allready quite shocking and in need of touch ups and sanding back..... dont make em like they used to .
has anyone else had this with new cars having shocking paintwork that doesn't last anywer near half as long as factory dub paintwork back in the day

I've seen some 05 plate ford focus' with rust on the bottom of the doors and rear arches. Ford obviously never learn either!

it really doesnt say much for build quality on new cars, not that fords have ever been that good at not rusting, they should all come ratt'd out of the factory, would save money on resprays atleast.
