I just purchased my Quicksilver GTO on Friday. It was a dealer trade, so I didn't get to see it until I picked it up. When I got there, I noticed several blemishes in the paint. These splotches were slightly lighter than the rest of the paint and looked like a whitish liquid had spilled on the areas (around the driver's windsheild sprayer nozzle, under the driver's sideview mirror, around the gas door, and on the passenger's fender). Interestingly, two of them followed along the horizontal ridge that runs along the sides of the car below the windows like a liquid was blown along the groove. The dealer told me to bring it back today and they would have their paint specialist look at it. I am now being told that the splotches are in the actual paint layer and that they want to send the car to the local GM plant to have the problem areas re-painted.
Has anyone else seen this type of defect? Any opinions on letting the dealer send it to the GM plant (where they assemble the minivans)? At least it is on a 24 month lease, so I don't have to worry too much about the longevity of their fix. But I would like it to be taken care of correctly in case I decide to buy it out or so the next owner doesn't run into problems down the road (I don't want to read about this car on this board a few years from now).
