My 97 Aurora is clean and green, no bubbling. I didn't think the aluminum hood/primer was a problem at all on the first gen Aurora'*........
Probably was repainted at some time. I had a frequent customer at work and his 97 Aurora had the hood blister problem. I've seen a handful of them at various stores, etc, over the years as well. It doesn't seem to be as common, but it still seems to be a problem. Althouhg to be fair, I mostly just see the paint coming off all together, instead of just bubbling.

Our '00 had the bubbles. We started noticing them at around 30k miles or so. We let them go until they started getting really noticable at about 80k or so. Looked into it and the local dealer said they couldn't fix it under warranty. So at about 98k we called up the other Pontiac dealer and talked to them a bit and they said that as long as the car had under 100000 miles they could fix it under warranty. (can't remember anymore what warranty it was that allowed this)

The car is now at 180k and the hood still looks like new.

So, if your car has the bubbling hood, and has under 100k miles, take it in and bitch and complain until they fix it.

This only happens on the hood correct? My dad says it might happen to the whole car but I told him he was wrong.

NO only the hood was aluminum .

But now that you mention it. I seem to remember someone mentioning something about
the gas door. can anyone confirm that?

GM put a aluminum hood for lighter weight.
But not the whole car.
