My car is approaching 2 years old with just over 9k of dry (non--winter) use and now it's having to go back to the factory in the New Year for a re-spray of all four wings (at least).
Micro-blistering of the paint is occurring... I'm told, "..this happens sometimes..."...
Anybody else had this problem and know what the actual cause is?

Type in Paint Man and search into it and it should help you have a rough idea of the whats and whys of paint .

“ Micro-blistering of the paint is occurring... I'm told, "..this happens sometimes..."..“

On a two year old car? No way should it happen sometime! Bearing in mind that the wings and body are sprayed at the same time, there’s always a chance that the rest might suffer at some stage from the problem. I’d insist that they respray the complete car.

Most likely cause is moisture in the air or on the cars surface at the time of spraying.

The paint protection film seems to have been doing its stuff in that regard... no stone chips to speak of so far...

+1 deano,
Had it occur on a narrowboat I painted a couple of years back, but, could also be evaporation of solvent as previous coat not dried sufficiently.
I would inspect areas that still look ok with a magnifying glass just to be sure.

We had this on Caroline's Mercedes E350 Coupe when it was 5-6 years old.
Mercedes re-sprayed the car under warranty.

I was told that all Mercedes cars painted a particular red and between specific dates had the problem.

The cause was an unexpected reaction between the primer and the first colour coat, due to a formulation change in the primer. The paint maker didn't think the change was sufficient to need to be declared. The bubbles lifted the clear coat slightly.

You don't say what the colour was, but it does seem to have a greater frequency with red pigments. Very strange.

The coupe required a few attempts unfortunately.

The paint colour is Kilimanjaro Sand Peter, so not quite in the 'red' spectrum... laugh
