Looking for advice. I’m thinking this site maybe able to help me out.
My 2015 Altima is just 2 months old. I’m kicking myself for not noticing the doors not matching when I picked up the car. Anyway without getting into the whole situation it seems to me and other the color of the doors is off. At first it was suggested that the car was probably damaged in transit and was painted. However after taking it to a few different shops and the dealerships shop. Everyone seems to think it could be factory paint. I’m still trying to figure out what happened buy Nissan Canada sucks and not helpful.
Have a few questions.
1. How would you guys fix this or would you just leave it? I mean can you only paint a door and blend a bit. Others have said paint the whole side?
2. Can they make it worse? I hear pearl white is the worst to work with.
3. What happens if I don’t like it after? Is a redo a question usually?
Thanks for any opinions. The dealers body shop recommended leaving it but offered a door being painted and blended with the other door and panel. I won’t mention what door. I want to know what you guys think is off. I’m having a hard time telling what the hell happened
At times its hard to tell. Depending on the light. At night its the easiest to tell. Especially if you park it under a street light or parking lot light. If there is not too much light or a lot of light you can’t tell.December 2, 2015 at 8:00 am #49192
It’s a brand new car they should have it fixed for you,and pearl white is not that hard to blend to make matchDecember 2, 2015 at 8:04 am #49193
If they offer to fix it than I would get it fixedDecember 9, 2015 at 10:53 pm #49195
I still can’t even tell what door is off? I think it might be the front. The body shop says the back?December 9, 2015 at 11:13 pm #49196
Who noticed the door being offDecember 9, 2015 at 11:18 pm #49197
I did. I noticed it after 2 months of ownership. Now I see it all the time. Even when others can’t. lolDecember 9, 2015 at 11:28 pm #49198
OK on your last post you said you couldn’t even tell what door was off so thats why i asked,but they should fix it for you,paint both doors plus blend fender and quarter panelDecember 9, 2015 at 11:31 pm #49199
Sorry I meant I couldn’t tell what door didn’t belong. Where the doors meet there is definitely a difference. But I can’t see a difference with the other panels. Thats why I don’t know what door is wrong.
Plus they just want to paint the back door and blend it with the front door and rear panel.December 9, 2015 at 11:33 pm #49200
