I noticed some paint issues the day I picked my Blazer up from the dealership, right before they handed me the keys. Thankfully I caught it before I drove off the lot, otherwise I dont think they would have fixed it. They had to repaint my entire tailgate, and buff out a spot on the front of the hood.

That's the best case scenario and hopefully others learn from it before taking delivery themselves.
For anyone reading this I suggest checking out an automotive detailing forum or some youtube videos to know what to look for.

On black Blazers you can see the faded black paint as well in direct sunlight at an angle. They didn't finish painting the entire vehicle evenly.

As I expected.

Even very high end vehicles have these problems right from the factory.
If anyone on this board with a black blazer is planning to get some sort of paint treatment done I'll be curious to see the before and after.

Im considering it, I definitely notice more swirls and weird marks in this black vehicle, more so than any other black brand new vehicle from chevy ive purchased. I'm new to the detailing world though. Any suggestions you have would be helpful

@trailblazer not only are dealers not helpful but their wash guys will unknowingly scratch your paint with dirty wash mits
right you are. Nothing like a dirty mitt to ruin a paint job. found a couple spots I wasn't happy about, unfortunately, didn't catch it before I drove off the lot, so I'm stuck with it, red paint.
I got the 3M protection done before I picked it up, some of the edges started to peal. dealer fixed free of charge. didn't know it at the time, but the 3M protection is under warranty for 7 years. guess that's a plus.

my only grip is that they didn't put a piece down by the rear wheels, or on the back bumper. loading and unloading from the back, short as I am, sometime got to lean against the bumper, if there's dirt on the bumper it scratches.

i used to be a detailer for one of the biggest dealership owners in Atlantic Canada. Not saying I am the best, but some things I do know about, from full interior cleans to exterior power buffing. Have a question, ask away, but fixing/cleaning exterior paint is a job in a half, and one mistake can cost you an entire paint job (or at least the panel your working on). Melted my fair share of plastic bumpers trying to get scratches out with high speed buffer, lol.

Id guess the chips on front are from sand/rocks.....put a PTM Aeroskin on it....bubbles/drips are a defect, may be able to correct with a machine/wet sand....depends how bad.

I just purchased my black 2021 Blazer RS on 3/25/21. I took it into the service department to have some accessories installed two days later and while standing next to it and talking with the adjuster, I noticed the first chip in the paint right under the window on the rear driver's side door. The adjuster basically wanted nothing to do with it and I blew it off thinking it was a fluke. Today, with less than 3500 miles on it, I was floored when I noticed the excessive number of small chips in all different areas. It started when I looked at the hood while drying it after washing it and the number continued to increase as I made my way around the car. Clearly there's no way this can be normal or acceptable with the sales manager when I call him tomorrow, right?
