Default paint

Hi everyone I'm a proud owner of a 02 limited PT in patriot blue, I have only had the car for a month and I thought that I would give it a wax, upon geting up close and personel I noticed alot of flaws in the paint IE: looks like clear coat comming off. I haven't been to the dealer yet I'm afraid they say that I didn't notice anything when I pick it up. Has anyone had this problem and if so what was the out come. Thanks.

I also have an '02 Patriot Blue, but with the Woodie option, and just finished waxing it for the first time last week. I didn't notice anything on mine, it's as smooth as a babies bottom. Where do you see the blems?

I noticed a few blems under the mirror as well as on the back, these are really minor because no one else has seen them but me, because you have to be within inches to see them. I'm brobally over reacting but this is my first new car (always had used) so I expected the pt to be flawless.

Take it back to the dealer. If they won't do anything, get onto your regional after sales manager - they should be able to put you onto a Chrysler paint expert. If it's a definate flaw in the paint, it's covered under warranty - the speed of the fix up depends on how loud you scream!!!
