door latch paint chips

Hello, I realized paint chips at door latches today. I checked other doors and they also have it (top/bottom and inside face).

Any idea what might have caused it? do they need touch-up paint?

Thanks,

I checked the other cars in the lot and it seems that they also have this paint chips at the door latches. Interesting. It must have been how they are installed.

Just went into garage to check mine. They are fine. But my color is not a metallic clearcoat. Build date: Friday, Oct. 3, 2014.

I had the same thing, and mine started to rust. The dealer fixed it, but not before giving me a hard time about it.

Re: door latch paint chips

Thanks for the replies. I will get it touched-up when I am in for the first oil change service. I hope it does not get rusty by then. I am at 1800 miles.

I hope it is a small one and can be fixed easily.

Re: door latch paint chips

Went out to the garage and I also have these paint defects on my 2015. Has to be related to assembly or painting. Wish I didnt know about it. Now I will be watching for rust everytime I open them.
