Hello to everyone! I just joined today...and I have a problem to share in my first post.
Bought a new 2005 SLK 350 and I hand washed it for the first time (first break from the rain this weekend here in the SF Bay Area). Car has less than 30 miles. The hood has about a dozen dime-to pea sized splotches in the clear coat. I looked at the rest of the car and it appears to be only in the hood paint.
Anyone else have this issue?? Of course, the Dealer said it is not a known MB problem and I have to bring it in to have them "evaluate" the problem. Does the Nonotech paint have a history of clear-coat splotches? It is almost like the clear coat reaction common in aftermarket paint jobs.
On the topic of Dealers...any feedback on MB of San Francisco??
