Default Why are 2019s continuing to have paint peeling - What is being done?

1. Why are brand new cars still having the paint peeling off around the edges of the front fascia where it meets the fender?

2. Why wasn't the paint/production/assembly process updated over the life of the C7 model? This has been happening since 2014. My 2014 did it on both sides of the front bumper.

3. None of my C5s every did this and I never heard of it as an issue on the C6. All had tight panel joints. Especially the C5 which bolted together vs. plastic snaps on the C7.

4. What is being done to mitigate this for the C8? The C8 will be my first ever brand new car and I will be extremely disgusted if I encounter these issues.

Thank you.

It needs an answer for sure. This finish issue is ridiculous.

Imagine dropping coin on a C8 only to have the same stuff happen.

I may give my C7Z a chance and check it out when its delivered from BG but you can bet I am waiting to sign paperwork until I can give it a once over. If I see paint chipping or bubbling it can go on its merry way with some other buyer.

Maybe the mods will send your post to Tadge. They have not sent mine.
