My car is in great condition, except about a year ago my roof started fading. Its gotten worse. I shouldn't have to pay for a paint job. There is no EXCUSE cause its a balack car. Three of my friends have black cars and their cars older than mine and their paint didn't fade. Something needs to be done.
The clear coat peeled off on the top of the roof,the trunk and the front bumper. Then the paint next. The whole car have to be painted over. My car is blue.
