Thanks Slorocket!!! I hope it all works out and this gets resolved quickly and correctly. I had a leased 2006 Ridgeline that got waxed once in 3 years and saw junkyard trips and trash picking several times a week and had no issues with the paint at all so I am not buying the whole bird droppings answer. If that were true EVERY new one sold would have an issue, I looked at the same new white XB at a local Scion dealer several times over a month or so and never once did it appear it had been washed. Well, fingers crossed!!

Finally heard from dealer and regional rep is supposed to be there tomorrow to look at it. Gave it a quick bath just now and going to drop it off there in a few minutes for tomorrow. Hope I get good news.

That was a total waste of time. Toyota rep blamed it on "outside influences" and said they are not responsible for it and will do nothing for me. This despite the fact there are bubbles forming UNDER the paint all over the roof!!! So I am not going to get a dime out of this if I sell it or trade it and a few local shops estimated about $2k to strip and repaint the roof to fix it with quality on par for a 2012. I don't have that kind of money to spend on a car I am starting to hate. I am now up to voluntary repo and lose the $5k I put down and the $1k in payments I have made thus far. Any suggestions?

I mean the thing is. The body is supposed to be corrosion treated to stop corrosion from outside influences like salt air etc.
Unless you drilled holes in the roof that exposed untreated metal there is nothing outside of normal use to dispute. Especially if its under the paint.

I would maybe ask an attorney to draft a letter to them.

No holes made in roof. I am still figuring out what to do with this. I just honestly have such a bad taste in my mouth i don't even want the car anymore.
