My girlfriend owns a 2011 Nissan Altima and just discovered a large area of flaking paint on the hood, and is wondering whether it might have been caused by the shop that performed the 60k service yesterday.
Here’s the sequence of events:
- She parks her car in an exposed driveway (partly under a tree) and as a result there was quite a bit of bird dropping on the car
- On Monday afternoon she took her car to a full service car wash
- On Tuesday morning she dropped her car off at a local service station for the 60k service. We picked it up in the evening
- This morning when she went to drive her car she noticed the following issue (see attached photo)
So I guess the question is what could have caused this? She thinks it was something that the mechanic did, but I can’t imagine what. My theory is that the car wash did it when scrapping off bird droppings but I’m just guessing here.
She says it’s very noticeable while driving and is pretty certain that it just occurred recently.
Thanks for any insight.
