    2019 Tundra TRD Pro. No damage to body. It appears to have paint failure? This is my passenger side rear quarter panel. Truck has ~21K miles on it.

    Take it in and have them fix it.

    What probably happened was the paint peeled off since Super White adds so much speed to these trucks. Gotta be careful with the white ones. They defy the laws of physics with their speed.

    Yep, take it in, they will fix that. Looks like the paint failed to adhere to the body. I would say good luck, but Toyota will take care of that for you no problem.

    Isn't there a TSB on this; specifically for the white color?

    I can say that my previous 2 Tacoma's both had terrible paint jobs. My Tundra has the paint protection decal (wrap) on the hood and mirrors. Toyota needs to do a better job when it comes to paint.

    Agree 100%, my paint is on the low end of the spectrum.

    There is. A friend with a white Corolla just went through it. Apparently a big problem with white paint on several Toyota models. I have not seen anything of concern on my truck.(yet)

    Sorry!
    Unfortunately it's true. 1.7 million Toyotas affected so far.

    My mother owns a white 2010 Corolla with get this....23K miles on it. Car looks brand new...what is so hard about white paint? I believe Acura/Honda also had a similar issue with white.

    Maybe it's COVID-19 ( Corollavirus ). Huh?

    I got a notice from Toyota Canada just the other day regarding paint failure on super white and blizzard pearl. Toyota was extending the warranty on the paint for 10 yrs. Thankfully I have black.

    Just an update. Toyota took it back for 3-4 days and painted it. Can't even tell and no further issues yet. :thumbsup:

    Anybody else have this issue? Was it just white? I’ve seen a lot of white vehicles doing this lately..... not just Toyota
