I have a 2009 black G37. I only have 11,000 miles on it and I already have small chips flaking off the hood. Also, where bugs have hit it, on the front bumper there are many very small dents from bugs hitting it. I want to know if any other 2009 G37 drivers out there are having a problem with the paint and clear coat just about being worthless.

Do you wax your car at all? Just wondering.

the dents would more likely be from rocks, not bugs

Yes I wash my car every week or two and I do keep it waxed. I've had it since January and had it waxed twice in that time. My problem has been that if I wait those two weeks in between washing I can't really get all the bugs out (the guts that is). They are under the clear coat and would have to be buffed out. I can't do that every other week. I saw other courtesy cars at the dealer with the exact same thing that mine has. Also, no dents at all. Just a chip of paint that is off.

could be that your paint/clearcoat didnt adhere to the panel well enough, hence why its flaking off.
