Did you buy it new or used? If used then someone probably painted the bumper and didn't prep it good enough. I recondition used cars at lots and it looks like new when I am done but I can't say it will last more than a few years depending on weather conditions.

i bought it brand new, and it was never re-painted,...

If you bought it new and it is defective it should be covered. If you live near the dealer you bought it from they should fix it without a problem.
Just fyi some brand new cars come with paint and bodywork. We just finished 2 doors on a brand new VW passat and I know the dealership won't disclose that it was done. We do several new cars that get lot damaged a month.

i didnt think off that,... thanks,.

any how ive called the 1-800 number of dodge to ask them to fix it because the dealer says it not warranty anymore,.. still wainting on their decision

No problem. You never know what shady shit dealers do that is never told to the owner. I.have seen a lot in my years at car lot doing recon work.on used and unfortunately some new cars. We have also dyed seats and other repairs on New cars as well that have been damaged either in shipping or by a porter or salesman, no one ever admits everyone pretends it just magically appeared. But after a few years somethings can start to go bad no paint Jo. Lasts forever.

Did they say why they aren't covering it under warranty? Double check no rock chips or any marks in the paint.

yes they say its only warranty for 3 years /60 000km and had exactly 3 years one day when i discovered it and went to the dealer but i had 72000km,..

Only thing left to do is find a good shop that does quality work and doesn't overcharge. There are always some out there.

I have had this problem with the paint on the hood of my truck. I have a spot on my hood that looks like oil is in the paint. The rainbow color oil leaves on a road way when its wet. I have talked to several people about this including the dealership and there answer is that the clear coat is peeling off. Dodge wanted to be cheap and put a clear coat on there vehicles that does not last! I have already had my front bumper repaired. I guess next is my hood because Dodge won't warranty it.
