Default paint issue with black sport

I have a 2013 black sport and noticed on the upper left side of the tailgate there is a small circular bald spot in the paint, and also found another one on the left upper door on drivers side. anyone else see these on there truck?

There are a few spots around the inside of my tailgate that don't have the greatest paint coverage. They aren't terrible and nothing is noticeable when the tailgate is closed.

Yes I did!!! Its hard to describe but it was black spots almost tar looking but not stickey like tar. I had a couple over my passenger door that I noticed rite after getting home from buying the truck. After I signed the papers I noticed one on the same side but on the middle of the truck bed after it was detailed. They buffed the one on the truck bed side out and when I went to get lisence plate they took care of the other two. Bring it to your dealer and tell them to buff it out for you. I can't notice that it was there anymore.

i dont know if these will buff out... when you rub your finger over it you can literally feel the circular shape and in the middle looks like something is in it.. its hard to describe... was yours like that?

I'm not sure if it's the same thing; but a friend of mine had a dozen circular spots in his paint. It appears to me that they were spots where they were spot sanding out dirt nibs and didn't buff them out properly. Put a buffer to them and they disappeared.

As mentioned above; take it back to the dealer and have them take care of it.

Just apply a little Rogaine and you'll be golden.
