ok so i washing my truck today and i noticed on top of the drivers side door that the paint was peeling and also kinda pubbling. its only on the top of the door no where else. i bought the truck at carmax so i plan on taking it in there and seeing what they say. i wash my truck at least once a week so i know its not from neglect. here are some pics.

which brings up why was it painted at under 4k?

Thank god alot of that stuff has to be disclosed at purchase in BC. If not the seller can be at fault. Good luck!
checked the carfax no accidents or anything. carmax said it had some dents that were fixed so i guess they just repainted it

maybe the truck was damaged on the train or something. The good news is you can get the door done cheap. Get it done before it gets worse.
ok thanks. would i be able to sand it and clear it myself? im painting the grill right now so i have the supplies

The doors need repainted anyway so if you already have the supplies I guess it's worth a shot. It's not like you're gonna hurt it. Worse case is they'll still need painted after you paint 'em....

if its been repainted that warranty is null and void.

you have a clean carfax and the truck only had 4 thousand on it when you bought it....the guy at the place you bought it could have just said it was repainted to get the responsibility off of him

it would be worth asking the dealer....
they would probally be able to tell

wow.......someone wrecked that bad boy then traded it off.

damn car salesmen!
pretty much...why else would you get rid of a truck with only 4k on it? i would have been leary as to why it was on the lot with so little miles.
