paint coming off the car paint coming off the car

Hello Everyone,

I am here to find out how many 2016 Nissan Maxima owners are having issues with the paint falling off the car as illustrated on the photographs attached. I am an owner of a 2016 Nissan Maxima Platinum, and when I contacted Nissan Corporate Consumer office they pretty much told me to go fix it myself.

My car is 4 years old, I have been a Nissan owner my entire life and I have never seen something like this before. I will very much appreciate anyone that can provide some guidance as to what other options i have at this point. I am thinking to either file a complaint with the consumer affairs agency in my state (NJ) or better yet if i can get more people that are facing the same issues, we can get together to file a class action lawsuit against Nissan.

it's obvious that this is a factory defect and from the looks of it, it appears as if they had a primer issue because the paint is completing coming off the metal piece. Please reference Nissan's response below, as well as the pictures illustrating the issues in my car.

Best Regards,

Jhon Reina
