Mini Cooper clubman Paint issues

Hi Mini Forum, I have had my Mini Cooper Clubman 2013 for 9 months when I discovered that the paint on the rear left door has started to bubble in 4 places.

There has been no stone impacts to my knowledge (does not look like the paint is punctured) and it looks like the paint has bubbled from the inside out (see photos) I will take the car to the dealer to see what they say, but was interested if there was any other Mini Clubman owners that had the same issue.

Looks like microblistering caused by moisture in one of the undercoats of paint, someone else was complaining about that the other week and whether it was a factory paint fault, or if the cars been touched up after it left the factory because of damage during transportation, that does happen.
Let the dealer see it before you mess with it, its a new car so should be covered.

Make sure you report it before the paint warranty runs out. I had exactly the same happen to my Corsa, had I from new and spotted it after just over two years. I thought it was corrosion but they said it wasn't and it was out of the 12 month warranty period for the paint.

That was 3 years ago, I didn't do anything about it, my daughter has the car now and it is no worse.

Had the same thing on the right rear door of mine, took it into dealer who took a few photos, booked it in for the following week and they replaced the door as the body shop manager said it is less likely to come back again that way.

Sounds a bit extreme? Pity there wasnt more as they might have replaced the whole car so it doesnt come back.
