The clear coat paint may peel on Mitsubishi Lancer

It is not uncommon for the clear coat paint to develop white spots and begin peeling. In most cases Mitsubishi will not cover out of warranty repairs for this condition.

Mitsubishi Lancer 2009 CVT sports made in Thailand. I live in the philippines. The car bonnet paint start fading 2 years ago and is faded completely. No where else but the bonnet only.
My Dad gave me the 2002 Lancer OZ rally when it had about 95,000 miles on it & even then the cold/hot air knob was hard to turn & has progressively gotten worse. Its the worst when the car is cold(impossible at times). The car now has 145,000 miles & yesterday we got 9" of snow, while backing out of the driveway I was trying to turn it ALL the way to heat & the entire knob broke off! I'm now using pliers to switch it back & forth.
about a month ago I noticed the clear coat starting to peal off all over the top of my car, down the side and now on the hood. I have the 5 year 100,000 mile warranty coverage on it but not sure if it covers the paint. Does anyone know if this issue is covered?
Started in 2011. Just the clear coat is peeling off all over the car. Mitsubishi paint jobs do not appear to last more than a few years.
Clear coat peeling off. Horrible paint.
My paints look like junk. The prep by the factory is very poor. I have spots popping up everywhere. the hood is extemely faded and the spoiler is also faded.
