I am coming to the Forum after owning two toyota pickups, a tundra 4wd, a tacoma offroad, and now the 08 Sq. I have an almost pristine 017 Offroad and my two children are destroying the truck, so I bought an 08 Sq that appeared to be very good to excellent. Mechanicals are excellent, 110k, all service done, everything performs flawlessy. However, I noticd a couple of spots here it seemed to me the primer should have been grey and it is white, so I took it to a trusted shop that I use. They went through the truck and confirmed all mechanics are top notch. They also said no accidents and no replaced body parts. They did say it had a rather poor after market paint job--not in execution; the paint covers well and is properly finished. It seems to be flaking off. I don't love the color but it's not the end of the world--Toyota metallic Nautical Blue. Two problems: It's sprayed over a stock white, and second, it seems to be badly mixed. I literally can take a wet rag in certain spots (not everywhere, which is perplexing) and rub the paint off. Other areas show paint flaking off. I have put about 2k on the odometer--any spot where rocks or gravel have hit, the paint is coming off. I now have big dime sized chips in three or four spots, with white underneath. I paid $15k for the vehicle, and in my area it should be $19k or so. My mechanic, a guy I have known for years, says the mechanics are top notch and both maintained as well as up to date on service. He sees it as a 500k vehicle, and beyond. Two questions: Should I sell the vehicle at a loss and disclose the paint issue (maybe I get $10k or $13k....) or, should I have it resprayed, preferably back to original white? What might a quality, or reasonable re-spray cost? I am of course upset with myself about not catching this. EVEN IF I had detected the after market paint job, I still might have bought it--the issue for me is less the respray and more the evidence that it has a bad mix in spots. It doesn't do that everywhere. I do not believe the seller had any knowledge of the bad mix, and I don't really want to go after him or sue him. It's my problem. Durn. Thanks in advance.
