Our equator members do find paint and clear coat issues popping up. Being one of them... it seems you would be a likely candiate for issues.

in the early 90'* it was the primer that was the problem.

But like the others have said you car is getting BEAT hard by UV rays. its likey that your cars clear was to thin or it was a low quality clear ( given you said "repainted AGAIN")

I am in the midatlantic region and lost my clearcoat in spots on my spoiler of the 95 Bonny I had. It also had almost 200,000 miles on it, with most of the driving on interstate highways. Driving on the interstate is like driving through a sand blaster.

The car was garage kept and parked under a parking deck at work for most of it'* 9 years of service to me so UV was not a big problem.
