Default why are black integras fading?

I have a black integra, and its got some cloudy white spots on the hatch and a tiny bit on the hood, I've seen other integras with this, what the heck, did they use cheap paint or what?

Its the clear coat that is failing. Check to see if this is a factory recall. Usually Ford/Lincoln/Mercury products have this problem constantly. But then again thats because they (Ford products) always seem to catch fire, thus causing the paint to obviously fail.

They stopped making Integras about 11 years ago. So I'm assuming that through regular wear & tear, that is normal. Especially if you live in an environment of heavy rain and snowfall.

Black attacts the sun's harmful UV rays easier than other colors.

do you wax your car at all? wax would have helped protect it from the sun, but black isnt the best of colors...it always looks dirty and absorbs the sun...get it repained if its worth it and make sure to wax it pretty often...it will keep it nice then

Your clear coat is dying or what they call "delamination". There is no fix for this but to repaint it. Your hatch, roof and hood will be the main areas to be effected due to the sun's heat beating on these panels. The sides near the windows can start to do it as well.Best advice. Wax, wax, wax, wax and wax it some more. All the panels that do not have the white spots. Then have the panels w/ white spots repainted.
