Only has 2000 km on it.........just noticed this.
Wondering what's the best way to handle this at the dealer......they already know I'm pissed about their lot boy scratching up the paint when I took delivery.
I refused the dealer paint protection and that anti rust box......I've only washed it once because I'm waiting on some detailing stuff to protect it.

Won't hurt to try. I had my truck for months then noticed rust on a crease on inner side of front quarter panel. Took it in under the 36k bumper to bumper and explained there was no way I could have done it (plus I did get the anti-rust box).

They honored warranty and had it repainted. Even gave me a coutesy car the couple days they had it.

Good deal.....I hope my experience goes as well.
When I was pointing out the paint imperfections caused by their washing it the sales mgr.did say he would take care of it.
Here's to fingers crossed and not coming unglued on them.

I'd be pretty pissed with that. Hopefully they fix it.

Ok.........wtf.
All ready to head to the dealership over this flaw in the paint but I check it before I go and its gone....completely!!!
It was definitely raised before and looked like bubbling.
Can anyone shed some light on this or am I completely losing it?

Was probably the light shining funny through your blue and pink umbrella :D

Seriously I thought it looked like dirt gunk to begin with.

Hey at least you don't have to deal with dealer.

Look on the bright side: now you have a valid tundra in the rain pic.

Who knows but I'll be watching this paint even closer now.

Poor truck caught a disease from some Surrey girls....:p j/k

Could there have been any grease or something on there? Did you feel the blemish or just look at it?

Lol.........it was hard and looked exactly like paint blistering.
The wife (non Surrey girl) felt it as well as her mother (non Surrey girl).
Nice truck btw.....;)

Thanks, I recognized the sunrise Toyota on the envelope right away....lol
I'm over in nanaimo.

I don't know what to say about your paint except keep an eye on it. I was going to ask what the crazy star was above your head but now that I look close it's probably a reflection of a sun umbrella.
