    The paint on the inside edge of the access cab door began to show bubbles, then the paint flaked/chipped. Of course, now that it has started to peel it will only get worse if I don't do something. Unfortunately, I've spotted the same thing beginning to happen with the passenger side access cab door in the same spot. Anyone dealt with something similar or have any recommendations to get it repaired? If the best advice is to take it to a body shop, then I can live with that--as long as I can fit it into a budget.

    If you've dealt with something similar, I'd love to hear how you fixed it or ballpark what it cost.

    Are you the original owner ? Could it possibly have been painted ?

    Hi _ Yes, I'm the original owner and hasn't been painted or touched up. I bought it new April 2015 and first noticed the 1st bubble on the driver's side last year, but today spotted signs of it starting on the passenger side.

    This isn't the first time I've seen this reported here.

    This is exactly what is happening to my Blue Ribbon Metallic paint as well. Same place too. I also have it on the fender lips where the hood meets them.

    I emailed Toyota Canada and they said that there is nothing that they can do since it is out of warranty. So I will be interested in what comes of your inquiry and if you decide to fix it yourself.

    I contacted Toyota too and after a long wait on hold, gave them my info and described the problem. There are no active service campaigns or recalls and the paint warranty is 3yrs/36000 miles. At least they heard my voice and can add me to their list of folks who have or will hopefully report this same issue.

    There’s other post with the same problem and they also had blue trucks.
