Default Paint Quality on TL's

Anyone have any issues with paint quality on the TL's? I just took delivery
of a 2003 A-SPEC Type S (Black) and the paintwork is brutal. dirt in the
paint, a hair in the paint.......This is my third Acura and I can safely say
it has the worst workmanship I have ever seen. Other than that what a blast
to drive!

Default Re: Paint Quality on TL's

If it's like my RSX-S, the slightest flying particle will leave chips down
to the primer. There are about a hundred of them now. I'm assuming the car
will need repainting if I keep it beyond the first year. Acura must be
skimping on paint.. It's extremely thin. I wondered why the price was lower
than the Celica.
