If they have a new paint booth in 5-7 years when I'm looking to buy new I'll consider if not I doubt I'll buy another also

Just under 4,000 miles. Vehicle should have a 3 year/36k warranty on everything except tires. So if you didn't put it there (i.e. rock chip) it should be covered.

My wife sold her 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe with 75k on it a couple of moths ago and it had better paint on it than this truck does.

I'm not sure how to describe my issue - seems like the paint DEPTH isn't that deep? It looks like it's a hair's breadth of an application. So that means it ain't going to be any way durable. The challenge i'm going out face with the dealer is when they question why i didn't report it sooner, like you've already seen. What does the Warranty say on this and how much is it down to their opinion as to what a bad paint job is? Can i insist on any kind of professional opinion...? Short of finding a bunch of 1500s with 9000km on them to compare against...
Tell them they should stop selling vehicles during weather that makes them uninspectable. That should take the wind out of their sails for a second.

We'll. I originally purchased a 13 Longhorn Picked it up in March of this year. Drove it home. Took it back the next day after discovering over 382 paint defects. I ended up bringing in a paint expert. They photographed the debris under the paint and provided me with pictures. My dealer was awesome and replaced the truck. Ended up with another 13 longhorn that came in August of this year.

Trust me. Stay calm with the dealer and head office. Head office didn't help me out at all. It was my dealer. I still have quite a few imperfections in the paint but it was 100 percent better than the original one that I bought. To top it off. I traded in a 2011 longhorn that still had better paint than my 13. Hopefully they correct this issue.

I haven't noticed any drips or fish eyes or anything like dirt in the paint but my truck has orange peel that is noticeable if you get up close. Its not as bad as the Ford truck I was considering buying instead of my Ram.

I have some rough spots in several places on my truck, and found this while working down low installing nerf bars. Something was on this door panel when they painted over the blue with mineral grey. Thankfully not that visible, but seems like something that should never have passed inspection--times have sure changed I guess.

guess the UAW boys were all jacked up from drinking alcohol and smoking weed on their lunch break the day your truck was painted.

I have several issues with my truck, still waiting for the dealer to call back about an appointment to take pictures but it's been about a month now, I had better follow up.
