So we are nearing the end of love bug season in Florida... thank the lords. Today I noticed after washing the jeep the grill is crackling and some paint is even flaking off only in spots the love bugs had hit. It has been at max maybe 5/6 days since it had last been washed and it happening all over the grill, but no where on the painted metal bits of the car. On top of that, the grill is yellowing in the corners. I find it amazing how it was only purchased back in April of 2018 and already having paint issues. Do they use formula or quality on the plastic bits? This is quite frankly unacceptable, will the vehicles warranty cover the fix? See attached pictures

PLEASE HELP!

Most people seem to be able to get a yellowing grill repainted under warranty. I haven't seen anybody post a picture of a grill that has the flaking, cracking issues your's is having. Hopefully they will just order and paint a new grill for you and swap it out when the new grill is ready.

I had problems with both white cars I had. I love the look of white. But with both my Jetta and my Sonata, I regretted the choice of white due to various paint issues. The biggest problem I had was "rail dust rust", requiring taking a clay bar to it every couple months as normal maintenance. Now I stick to black paint.
