You've got to be kidding. The car is 15 years old and stuff happens
at that point. When you say "wing" do you mean an aftermarket
spoiler? Was it on the car when new or added later?
Chances are it is an add on piece not pained the same way the factory
paint was done on the car.
Doubt the dealer will do anything, now would I expect him to. It is
well past the warranty period and we have no idea how the car was
taken care of, what climate and air quality it was exposed to.
Go to a Hyundai showroom and take a close look at the paint. They
really do an excellent job and is better than some cars costing twice
as much. It is also better that what was used in 1999.
Don't do that. Clear coat sucks. It does that in other brands, too. It's
a transparent coating on top of the paint. Why won't it peel, blister,
and look yukky?
Buy a white car. Ever notice that they don't have clear coat? Check out
a bunch of white cars for a revelation. My white 2000 Sonata's paint is
fine. Just lots of dents on the right side.
