Extreme amount paint chipping

2018 silky silver niro, 10,300mi. Noticed chipping on passenger side from early on. Now chips are everywhere on passenger side only. Suspect defect in paint process for that side of car. Anyone else notice this problem?

Not me, not yet anyway. I'd be interested to see a photo of what you are talking about. Also - any chance that something about the way you are using the car is a factor? Maybe an aggressive car wash you visit? Or a dirt road that you travel frequently?

I've had my 2017 Niro for almost two years. No paint issues at all.

Show it to the dealer.

The only "chip" i had was between the front grill and the hood from a moving truck last summer.. As per my White 2019 PHEV, nothing yet soo far! Sometimes, just some brake spots makes you feel like if the paint is "chipping".. Like Deltasmith said, a photo will give us more of an idea.!
