Default Paint chip issue is total B.S. !

If you tail gate, you will get paint chips in any car. Are you really believing that Suzuki paint does attach itself to the body any worse than any other car?

How to fix paint chips, dont tailgate!

That may be true, but I think all cars have cheaper paint jobs than they did years ago.

The paint chips off easier than most cars dude....I've seen almost every single one we've sold come back chipped like crazy before the first oil change....only ones that don't chip are the ones that are repainted.

I agree I am dealing with that issue now. Suzuki has already repainted hood and admits to the paint being too thin. Mine measured 2.5 mil.

I first went to dealership and complained and then had them have a Suzuki tech representative come in to look. I was also told of the on going problem with the paint issues by another dealership. I then took my car to a body shop and had the paint metered. Once I did that I went back to Suzuki with the report and in the end they agreed to paint the hood and trunk. I took it a step further and contacted an attorney. I recently had my entire car painted. Suzuki says their standard paint I 3.0 mil my car is now 5.7 which is more of a national standard. Its alot of work bit worth it. Good luck!!

I have a 2010 kizashi in red....It has been painted 2 times by 2 different suzuki dealers since March of 2011. In the past 9 months my car has been in the shop getting paint work for a total of 67 days...I just got it back 4 weeks ago and low and behold the damn thing is chipping like crazy again. This issue with the cars is not a paint problem its deeper (think metal contamination). Even with all of this crap going on i'm still having trouble finding a good lawyer to lemon this thing out. Any suggestions???

We've had ours for 14,000 miles now and the paint is fine. Something doesn't seem right with the suzuki dealer not being able to provide a good paint job. I'm not sure I'd point to metal contamination though. Shotty work may be more to blame. I'd contact Suzuki itself and tell them whats happened. Maybe they can help.
