    Yep, roof and hood painted already. It's the tops of the bed rails and where the rear quarters flare out....keep an eye on the edges.

    Well, Toyota said they would fix the issues... bed sides were on the list and I asked that they make the bodyshop that did the hood to make it right as there are da marks and what looked to be some cracking. The truck has been in the bodyshop since Tuesday.. fingers crossed that the make it right this time. More to come....

    Nope...purchased it about 2 months ago with 16k on it. The dealer I purchased it from had me take it back to the Toyota dealer that had the paint fixed the first time (almost a year to the day). So I'd imagine they are making the bodyshop (farmed out) redo the hood along with doing the bedsides.

    Every time I see the thumbnail of this image when browsing this forum section, I always immediately think of a submerged submarine, specifically the fin, that has a lot of air bubbles coming out of it.

    I just had to say that. I'll leave now.

    ]I have the same issue with my 2017 Tacoma. Same color. Only on the roof. Just noticed it last week while looking out of my 2nd floor window. :( Will try the dealer next week.

    Sorry to hear that. I figured that wasn't factory paint failing like that. Be vigilant with the shop doing the correction. My wife's Grand Cherokee had the hood done at the time of purchase, and started developing defects after about 6 months. In addition, they never matched the orange peel and it always looked off to me. This was after two additional repaints.

    I wonder though, why in the heck would the roof ever need to be repainted?

    How often do you wash your truck? How often do you wax?

    I managed to get the dealer to "fix" the issue. They had a 3rd party bodyshop redo it. I think they took some of the old clear coat off and recoated it. Trying to get exactly what they had done was impossible... very vague:( looks much better..for now.

    This truck was washed 2 times a week and double waxed every other month. What's happening to the paint has absolutely nothing to do with maintainance and everything to do with quality which is why they are covering the paint under warranty.

    This x1000. It's a paint defect, not a care issue. I get so tired of everyone immediately blaming lack of care for this problem when its clearly happening to a large number of trucks.

    Is this just for the 2017's or have any other years had issues?

    Far as I know it's 2017's only. I will say I swapped hoods to get the scoop hood with a guy who had a 2016 and the hood did not show any problems, just my roof and fenders.

    Same problem with my 17. The Toyota dealer got Toyota to repaint my entire truck under warranty. They included sanding all paint down to metal....

    So, my truck will be headed back to the body shop one more time but probably not the last. This time the paint failed on the drivers side bed and they are only going to paint that panel. After talking at length to the shop manager it seems that all of our trucks were painted during the same month at the same factory and they have no idea of why there is a reaction.

    That's crazy how Toyota isn't consistent on how they address this too. I'm picking mine up today from the dealer after they repainting everything but the bumpers. Post #301 was the state of mine before going in for this.
