The front bumper paint was flaking off only a few days after we purchased this POS. They painted the front bumper and again the paint is flaking off. The car is not even a year old and the bumper already needs to be re-painted again!!

paint is easily scratched paint is easily scratched

The issue is that some paint is scratched at the right back passenger door body frame. I bought the car on November 2016 at Sunridge Nissan Calgary. During the winter, I was not aware of the paint issue until April. I showed the issue to the service guy Mike. He insisted that it was not a factory delivery issue and said it was caused by sand, due to the car door not being aligned with the main body door frame...the issue was not covered by warranty or extended paint warranty. He advised me to go to a body shop to fix it with paint and adjusting the door gap accordingly. I am not convinced by his advice and I believe it is a factory issue, as I have bought new cars like Honda, Toytota before and never come across issues like this. I'm really disappointed by Nissan cars.

Update from Apr 20, 2017: Here is my pictures to support the complaint. Once again, I beleive the car door is not properly aligned to the car body frame or the paints are not properly paitned during the factory delivery .
