Default Paint peeling '04 Accord EX - anyone???

I seem to recall someone else posting in ref to a paint peeling problem on
the '04 Accord. Can anyone provide some details or refresh me on this?
My son has an '04 Accord and has now been back to the dealership a total
of 3 times. It's peeling again in the area of the tail lights. Is there
a TSB on this? We're about to call an attorney and pursue a Lemon Law
claim.

Thanks in advance.

Aha, and now I can see where you're getting your attitude from.
Why has the dealer refused to fix your paint problem?

The dealer has repainted the area twice in 5 months of ownership. Most
recently they repainted 3 weeks ago. It is now peeling again, same area.
We do not want to request Lemon Law relief, we only want it ****FIXED****
and to have it stay fixed. The dealer has already had 2 "at-bats" on this.
We've already been told we're working with the wrong dealer, but we
actually figured that out for ourselves shortly after taking delivery.

hmmm what the dealership is prob doing is using touch up paint cause they
want to go threw the process of painting the whole car....if they didnt get
the flakes or sand it down it may casue peeling like that...my parnets both
have 04 accords and we dont have that prob...so ask if you can be there
while they are painting it or so they say they are painting it to make
sure...if they say no file a complaint with honda and persue the lemon law

Any chance the car was repainted in a single area to cover up damage
that might have occurred between the factory and dealer?

I once had such a car - unknown to me until the paint faded in one
area. Although out of warrantee, the dealer repainted the car.

The peeling is occurring around the top edge of both taillights, the right
side moreso than the left. With intervention from Honda N.America the
whole right quarter was most recently repainted. Sadly the problem is
starting to occur again. Right now it's very minor and hardly noticeable
unless you really look for it, but it has begin to peel once more.

Perhaps they failed to put in an additive to the paint needed for the
bumper!

I once had a little accident that required my bumper to be repainted.
I took it to the dealer .... a few years later, I bumped another car.
(It was just a touch between my bumper and the other car.) The area
where the bumper came into contact looked like the paint had shattered
into a zillion little cracks.

When I got the bumper repainted somewhere else, the guy told me that
an additive had not been added which gives the paint on the bumper a
rubber quality so it doesn't shatter.
