The same exact thing happened to me a few weeks ago. It's on the upper rear doors on both sides and hatch door. My 2008 Equinox is white and is now grey where the paint peeled off and is now starting to rust. I contacted the dealer and they don't want to deal with the problem. I contacted GM this weekend in hopes to get some answers. Have you found out anything further and what our recourse might be? Thanks -

So my white 2008 equinox has the exact same thing. Paint all peeled in the back on both sides. Took back to dealer. They told me something must have splashed on it. Seriously?? On the exact same places on each side?? I am so angry. -

I have a 2008 equinox and the paint is doing the same thing above rear doors. If any of you have pictures you can send me of your vehicle it would be greatly appreciated. Gm told me they didnt know of any other cases where this happened. The dealership I went to said that gm had a problem with the primer chalking causing the primer to separate from metal and he said is definitely a factory issue. Talked to attorney and he asked me to gather as many pics and people that have the same problems.email. carobert923@gmail.com thanks -

I finally got some satisfaction from GM through my dealer. They agreed to repaint the problem area, from the seam in the panel above the doors on each side and the back of the car. I agreed to pay a $350 copay. I really should not have, but need the car fixed to prevent further destruction. It took a great deal of work on my part, but have bought several cars from the dealer and every time I got a no, I asked to speak to someone above the person I had talked to. -

My Blue 2008 Equinox is doing the same thing above the driver rear doors and on the roof. It just started a couple days ago and I have the same primer problem leaving a white chalky residue. The surrounding paint is starting to have the same problems (pitting/small pinpricks) and this includes the Passenger side above the rear door. I would be happy to send you my pictures if I can get you to send the pictures you have and that you have received from other Equinox owners that are experiencing or have experienced the same issues. I am going to a dealer tomorrow. I too, will obtain an attorney if this problem is not resolved by Chevrolet. My email address is hank.carl18@gmail.com. -
