The paint right under the window on the trunk started inflating after I had water leaking from the windshield washer , they fixed it, however the paint has peeled off along the whole section.I asked about it when I brought the car in for my oil change, they said to bring it to a paint shop.I now see it is starting to inflate on one of the wheel rims. My car only has 87,000 kilometres on it. I have never seen this before
Paint doesn’t inflate. I guess you mean that it looks like bubbles under the paint. That is rust. The way to control it is to remove it and prime then paint over the area.
Regardless of the odometer mileage, after 8 years some cars will develop rust under the paint–some more than others. The last Chevy that I owned developed this problem after ~4 years.
If you don’t wax the car once or twice a year then they will be more prone to this type thing .
I don’t believe that wax will prevent a paint delamination problem, it is a defect with the primer or E-coat material or application.
Windshield washer? Front of car? Trunk. Rear of car? Ah, rear window washer? Do Kia Rios have rear washers?
Since Kilometers are involved I assume, right or wrong, that Canada may be involved in this. That means snow, salt, and rust. Could be rust caused, problem with the factory paint, or poor paintwork from a previous repair which may be unknown to you if you bought the car used.
I read an article in an auto journal some years ago which stated that something like 30% of all cars have been hit at some point by the time they’re 7 years old.
