Not a happy chappy ..........
I am the very happy owner of a Black/black edition ..but as im sure you have all seen that there is an issue with the paint being very very soft , mine being a particularly bad example..I Contacted Nissan about it and because I bought it from an independent retailer its "not Nissans problem" ( my argument is its still under Nissan warranty so yes it is ! ) ive already had it Detailed with a full report now being looked at by Nissan but the same reply came back ...how is best to proceed ??
:confused:

That is staggering. What did buying it from an independent have to do with it?
Presumably it is an official UK car? If so, then the warranty, as you said, absolutely does apply!

If its a UK car and the paint is sh*te...they have to care about youre problem.....as it has been sold by them to whoever(which doesn´t matter of course)...

What they say,doesn´t matter,if the paint is not ok,they have to look after you...:thumbsup:

Hi mate.

Did you buy the car from new i.e delivery mileage only? As a new purchase Nissan are on a sticky wicket but if the car was a "used buy" then things become more complicated.

The 3 years warranty is still on the car,doesn´t matter if it was bought new or if it had 25 preowners....:thumbsup:

Alas the 3 year warranty doesn't protect you for the things the previous 25 owners have done! If owner number 1 washed the car in salt with an abrasive pad I don't think you would have a valid warranty claim from Nissan for crap paint!

If the paint is too soft....then this is nothing any owner is guilty for.....

Is it on hp or pcp?

If so, your claim would be against the finance company as they in the eyes of the law have supplied you the goods.

Fit for purpose?

Trading Standards might be interested. Anybody thought of setting up a legal fund for GTR owners and all paying in for group representation? It would set the cat amongst the pigeons!

Its a well know problem on the black. Nissan are well aware of it a have an ongoing claim at the minuet for this problem,
I am waiting for a permanent solution as detaling it wont sort it long term.

I have had a lot of black cars (jncluding non metallics) and this is easily the worst/softest paint I have ever seen.

Eg, Langka stuff that is used to smooth over stone chip repairs is supposed to only affect the repair paint / laquer as the original production paint/laquer should be a much harder / different composition, yet Langka will remove the original paint in exactly the same way as the touchup paint.

Fortunately the damage polished out very easily as soon as I noticed what it was doing, but then again, that is another indication of the paint's weakness.
