Geez, I've had cars way older than 15 years and the paint didn't peel of them. I would expect a car'* paint job to last longer than 15 years and I've never seen a car that has paint peeling off it in sheets. They should do something or my next new car won't be a GM.

the imports wouldnt have such an edge here i guess if they did that.

susan; apparently you havent had a 80'* early 90'* gm either. they had a bunch of recalls back then too. they used to do this scientific test at the dealer, they would take a few inch wide piece of masking tape and lay it across the roof and if paint peeled up when they lifted it you got a free paint job, lol

I have a 1994 Buick Le Sabre which has done exactly this. It is or was Arctic White. It was very shiny and the primer is very smooth with probably a lack of tooth for the top coat. The paint was fine until 2011 when a quarter sized spot popped off of the truck lid. It seems to have something to do with age and exposure to the elements. It has progressed mainly on the top but a little to the right side and on the hood. Until this winter I was able to keep up with it by using touch up paint but now the paint is coming off in sheets. I see my car is not the only one with this problem.
My thoughts were to use a garden hose to get under the remaining paint and blast it off of the car. Then I would scuff up the primer with say fine sandpaper clean and spray with a white primer then with a good couple of coats of Arctic White and not paint the front fenders which are plastic and seem perfect. Any thoughts on this?

I think is a common problem with the brand. Manufactures uses cheap brand of paint that is why it won't last as to compared with other brand or manufactures.
