2015-2019 Tahoe and Suburban UV paint issues on hood and roof

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I'm having the same issue as everyone here. Back then I thought some obnoxious neighborhood kids had scratched my vehicle in the middle of the night but reviewed cameras & found nothing. I figured perhaps could've been some idiot at 1 of our local stops but it's now that I'm finding out this is a prevalent issue w/ GM.


We first noticed it about 2 years ago (year 2020) when the vehicle was only 4 years young. We drive a beige (sand colored) 2016 Yukon XL & the damage resembles exactly the above posted photos. Damage is all over hood. I haven't read through all the threads but... is there anyway of repairing aside from the ridiculous $2K repair I was offered here locally?


I'm obviously outside warranty coverage. Vehicle is parked outside but underneath palm trees (shade) year round. It's Miami so yes rain but no ice / snow. Honestly just shocked at the poor paint quality on these GMC vehicles. I read something in passing regarding a lawsuit of some sort? Does anyone know anything about this? Please advise. Thanks.
