    This is exactly why I picked Super White. Living in FL, white holds up the best to the brutal sun.

    White does have a tendency to yellow somewhat over time.

    Funny you say that, while I did not mention it in my first post, I was parked next to a late Gen 2 white Tacoma with my new 2019 white Tacoma yesterday. It was pretty noticeable the yellowing on the Gen 2 Tacoma white paint job.

    I am having the same exact issues with the clear coat on my truck!!! The problem started last summer and I wasn't sure what was happening. I thought it would buff out after I waxed it. NOPE!!! I called my dealership to explain and they said there was a 3 year warranty on paint. I took it in and they had a FTP take a look. They were willing to re-paint the hood and roof. Having never had a new vehicle, let alone one that costed 45k, I found this unacceptable! I told them at the initial inspection, what's to say the problem won't spread to the body? And now it is! I want the WHOLE truck re-painted. Now they are saying they're doing me a favor since the truck is out of the 36,000 mile/3 year warranty. It wasn't when I brought this to their attention. Plus, I drive between Sacramento and Reno quite often for work so I don't feel that all the driving affected the paint and the mileage warranty is invalid.

    No that’s just the primer coat.

    That is nasty. Reminds me of the crappy paint jobs on GM's in the 1980's and Chrysler's of the 1990's. Damn shame.

    Just wondering, Mexico built or Texas built? Hopefully you get that warrantied covered.

    Took it to the dealer and all he did was take pictures and said he has to send them to Toyota. He said all the would probably paint is just the part that’s peeling. Still haven’t heard back.

    They will paint the door only. Once they do make sure color matches to the truck. If you notice slight color difference ask to repaint whole side. I have seen many cars with fender or door not matching or aging same as rest of the vehicle. My 2017 OR paint became chalky on roof and hood. Toyota rep had to look and measure pain before approving repaint. Now I am waiting for dealer to arrange date when to repaint it.
