How's the exterior paint holding up?

A few scratches but no real chipping problems.

I see a lot of chips in the paint after relatively short use.

I should have done a clear coat paint job when it came off the dealers lot.

I'll have to do a paint touch up and or new clear coat soon.

I live in arid alberta and my paint has tiny little rust spots all over it after a year and a half of ownership. We're taking it to the dealer and asking for something to be done because clearly it is a flawed paint job. It's a white 2008 LE.

My 05 with 40050 on it is holding up well. Previous owner really put through hell, digs and scratches. I do have rust showing on the rear hatch, two spots from under the the chrome bezel above the license plate. All in all IMOP a few more coats of clear would have been nice.

I live in Arizona so it's very tough on paint jobs. That being said I bought my 05 Pathfinder new and it is always garaged. I recently noticed in the last 6 months that the paint on the hood and tops of the fenders has started to get cracks in the clear coat. My pathfinder is black.
