White 2009 Chevrolet equinox paint is peeling off of car. It started on the driver's side above the windows first and within a few days, the passenger side is doing the exact same thing. We noticed some "dimpling" in the paint on the lift gate as well. We have contacted GM (Chevrolet) and have been told to take it to a local dealer for a "diagnostic" evaluation. My car has only been exposed to natural elements and this should not be occurring in only 6 years.
